Thinking of all of you as you mourn your Mothers death. I have fond memories of our family sitting behind your full pew every Sunday at Langside Presbyterian Church in the 60's. 

It is difficult getting  through the mourning process when hugs etc are not allowed  ( with the covid 19  restrictions), but pray that you  find ways to support each other, through this difficult time

Dear DeBoer family:

We hold you in our thoughts and prayers as you mourn the loss of Roelie, your mother (in-law).  It was good to know Roelie and to have her in our family.  She was a wonderful wife to dad, accepting him for who he was, caring for him and sharing his jokes and pranks. She was also a loving (step) grandmother to our children.  It was good to hear your memories of her. Her love for all of you and for all her grandchildren was evident every time we talked and she shared about her family.  I was always impressed by how well she kept everyone straight and knew  what was happening in their lives.  We pray that you may all experience God's comfort and strength as your lives go on without her.  As we were watching the service, I thought of her in heaven, in the presence of God.  Love, Alice and Leo

Elaine Dignan - 2020-04-30 11:44:23

Frankie was such a wonderful strong, giving lady. I'm going to be lost without her humour and supportas she was my very first sponsor in AA and she was still sponsoring me over the phone. When I would call the first thing she would say was "What was the last meeting you were at?" I will miss her support.


Eric and Bonnie Taylor - 2020-04-29 20:15:05

We were neighbour's of Roely and Gerry for years. We could not have had nicer neighbour's. We helped each other, we shared many laughs and Roely was an excellent baker. Sometimes we would come home from work and there would be a warm pie on our counter bringing a big smile to Eric's face because he knew who had been there. We both have very fond and caring memories of Roely. Hold your memories close to your heart and she will always be with you. Hugs Eric and Bonnie  

Dale and Marilynne Gilchrist - 2020-04-29 19:57:39
