With great sadness we announce the passing of Eveline Perdok (nee Spiekerman van Weezenlenburg) on January 21, 2018 in Kamloops, BC. Eveline was born on March 16, 1925 in Purwuredjo, Indonesia and is survived by daughters Corrie (Terry), Janey (Noel) and Elizabeth, son Bill, as well as sister-in-law Vera, nephews and niece in Holland. She was predeceased by her husband Derk in 1998.
“Oma” loved her eight grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and faithful canine companion Baxter.
Eveline led an exceptional life, travelling from her birth country to the Netherlands, Canada, Australia, the US and finally back to Canada. A lifelong believer in the value of education and learning, she achieved LPN certification at age 58 and practiced in a group home care facility for a number of years.
Eveline embraced life by travelling regularly and maintaining contact with friends from around the world. She enjoyed competitive bridge, sewing for her grandchildren, and shopping. She also loved gardening, flowers and painting.
Our family extends thanks to the Home Support Team and HandiDart. We are also grateful for Dr. Kip’s thoughtful care and to staff of Royal Inland Hospital. Finally, we acknowledge the kind care provided by staff at Marjorie Willoughby Hospice.
Arrangements are in the care of Drake Cremation and Funeral Services of Kamloops, BC. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.comPrint This Obituary & Condolences
