Van DONKERSGOED: Grace went to be with her Lord, suddenly on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, in her 83rd year. Wife of Bert van Donkersgoed of Listowel. Mother and grandmother of Gerald Donkersgoed and his wife Laurie Miller of Vancouver, B.C. (Luke and Kelly), Christine Remley and her husband Frank of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, (Laura, Karina and her husband Kenny Stennes, and Matthew), and Bernice Baljet and her husband Dan of Rochester Hills, Michigan (Kristin, Danielle, and Nicole), and great-grandmother of Cade Stennes. Sister of Luke and Sini van Dijk, George and Els van Dijk, and Margie Ellen, and sister-in-law of Annie van Dijk. Grace was predeceased by her son Luke in 1984, sisters Trientje Hazelaar and Gloria Vandertuin, and brother Henk. Grace was born in the Netherlands in 1932 to Stientje and Lucas (Kamps) van Dijk. Her father was a baker, and she was unwittingly a member of the Dutch resistance during the war, delivering a specific number of loaves of bread to a specific house - many times. In 1952 she immigrated to Canada with her parents and sister (3 brothers were already in Canada, 2 other sisters stayed in Holland). She often said, with a twinkle in her eye, that she enjoyed the voyage - her kids never did hear details, apart from celebrating her 20th birthday on the boat. The family arrived at Pier 21 in Halifax, and took the train as far as Manitoba. They settled in Souris and soon moved to Brandon. She got a job at the local hospital, and Brandon being a centre of Ukranian immigrants it was several weeks before she realized the second language she was acquiring was not English. She met Bert in 1953 and they married the following year; all 4 children were born in Brandon. Graces sense of humour and Berts gentle smile resulted in wide circle of friends. They moved to Ontario in 1966. And they moved to Ontario in 1973. Yes, twice. Youngest son Lukes asthma forced a return to Manitoba following the first move, which Grace laughingly referred to as the time we took a holiday with all our furniture. When they finally settled in Ontario, they had several years with a laying hen flock in Brussels and then another flock in West Montrose. Luke lost his battle with cancer in 1984. Grace was always generous with helping others, volunteering through organizations such as the Canadian Cancer Society, The Canadian Diabetes Association, the Willing Workers at Knox Presbyterian in Listowel, and the Terry Fox Foundation. She spent many happy years working afternoons at The Top Drawer in St. Jacobs. Grace had a gift of telling a story, laughing at herself, she wasnt shy about being the center of attention at any gathering of 2 or more people. She took enormous pleasure in visiting people and brightening their days. Visitation was held at the Eaton Funeral Home, Listowel on Thursday from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The funeral service was held at Knox Presbyterian Church, Listowel on Friday, April 24th at 11:00 a.m. Interment in Cranbrook Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Terry Fox Foundation or Evangel Hall (evangelhall.ca) would be appreciated.

She has a younger brother Peter in Alberta. She was predeceased by her oldest brother Bill. Catherine was born March 22, 1926 in the RM of Bolton near Inglis to John and Millicent Robertson. She had two brothers Bill and Peter, three sisters, Margie, Patricia (Pug) and Karen, (Tip). She was a pioneer and had many stories about life on a her fathers homestead. Before her father helped build a school and convinced a teacher to come to the area she had to move away to go to school for one year at the young age of six years. When the Robertsons moved from the family farm to Foxwarren she met her husband Ken Wotton and they were married in 1948. In 1951 when Ken started working with Manitoba Telephone System they moved to Birtle. Catherines mother died in 1958 and that is when she moved in with her Father so she could help him raise her two younger sisters. Catherine was the oldest of six children, whose mother died at an early age. Her sisters recognized that she had a lifetime of responsibilities for them. She was a loving, caring person who they knew would always be there for them. Catherine and Ken moved to Deloraine in 1965 where she and the three boys helped Ken build a new house for them. They enjoyed their time in Deloraine for 36 years. Catherine was active in the community and her church. She was on the hospital board, UCW, a member of the Legion Auxillary, and sang in the United Church choir. She was a curler, a golfer, member of the Deloraine quilters, and enjoyed many summers at Lake Metigoshe in the family cottage. She worked for a period of time at both the Robinson Store and the Deloraine Co-op. She was a tremendous homemaker, cook, gardener, quilter, and will always be remembered by her grandchildren for the buns, cookies, preservatives and the special quilt that she made for each of them. Catherines father was born in Scotland and one of the high lights in her life was travelling with her sister Margie back to Scotland to visit her family roots. She had many picture albums of that trip and the picture she showed the most was of her kissing the Blarney Stone. She was a proud Scot and she would have smiled when the Piper played Amazing Grace at her funeral. During their retirement years Ken and Cathy travelled in the winters to Florida, Phoenix, the Maritines, and Vancouver Island. After Ken had his stroke in 2001 Catherine and Ken moved to Riverheights Terrace in Brandon. They lived there for 5 years and in their 80th year in 2006 they decided that they had enough of the snow and decided to live in Vanvouver with their youngest son Neil. He built them a special suite in his home that had many features that made Kens life easier. They enjoyed their time in Vancouver but In 2009 after Kens death, Catherine decided to move back to Birtle to be closer to her sisters. In 2012 Catherine moved back to Brandon to Riverheights Terrace for a year and then moved and spent the last year of her life at Sokol Manor Assisted Living. She really enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff in this smaller setting and felt she had found the perfect place to live. We would like to thank the staff at Sokol Manor for their care and support during her residency. Cremation and a Church Service has taken place in the Rivers United Church on April 14, 2015. A small graveside service will be held later this summer so she can rest beside her husband Ken in the Foxwarren Cemetery.
