On Friday, September 23, 2022 the Lord called home, his beloved daughter Attje/Ann de Roos (nee Draaistra) in her 89th year. Loved wife of Johannes/John de Roos (1993) and eldest daughter of Thomas and Renske Draaistra. Cherished mother, bringing much joy, to Walter, Renetta (2018), Greta, Thomas and Theresa de Roos. Much loved grandmother to Justin, Chelsey (Justin) and Mathew de Roos; Thomas (Rochelle), James (Catherine), Jacob (Sarah) and Joshua Martin; and to Brycen de Roos. Every night in her prayers, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren Svetlana, Jackson, Scarlett and Benjamin were all lovingly named. As well as being predeceased by many loved family members, she leaves behind precious brothers (in-law) and sisters (in-law), nieces and nephews.
Everywhere Ann went she made lifelong friends and considered her neighbours a part of her extended family. She loved and was loved and will be missed by many. A huge thank you to her Doctors, the care team at Hamilton General and visiting PSW’s, particularly Melanie, Ruth, Alisha, Kayla and Allison. Visitation will be Monday, September 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at Donald V. Brown Funeral Home, 36 Lake Avenue Drive, Stoney Creek. Following a private immediate family interment, there will be a Service of Remembrance at Mountainview Christian Reformed Church, 290 Main St. E., Grimsby on Tuesday, September 27 at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to Shalom Manor, Diabetes Canada or charity of choice would be appreciated.
