In Loving Memory Of

Jane Waayenberg


Our loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother Jane Waayenberg went to be with her Lord and Saviour on Thursday, October 8, 2015 at the age of 92 years. She will be dearly missed.

Jane was born in Barneveld, Netherlands on January 25, 1923 to Pieter and Hendrikje Molenaar. She lived and worked in the Netherlands (Holland) until she immigrated to Canada with her husband, Gerrit Waayenberg and three of their children on April 1, 1952. Jane and her husband, Gerrit settled in the Five Mile Hall District in 1954 where they raised their family and operated a dairy farm for many years. They both were active members of the Christian community in Grande Prairie until their passing. Jane enjoyed her greenhouse and her flowers and was an active member of the Grande Prairie Farmer’s Market for over 41 years. She looked forward to spending her Saturday’s selling her houseplants, bedding plants, knitting and in the recent years, her “chair booties” and socializing with the Farmers Market Community.

Jane is survived by her six children: Nelis (Adele), Peter, Gerry (Peggy), Henry (Lani), Annette (Peter) and Ron (Judy), as well as their children and families.

She was predeceased by her parents, four older brothers, her husband, Gerrit and one grandchild.

A special Thank You to Dr. Richard Martin and his staff for looking after mom over the years, as well as the doctors and staff at the QEII Hospital and at the Cross Cancer Institute over the past 6 weeks.
