VANDENBERG, Josephus Martinus Vandenberg | Print |

VANDENBERG, Josephus Martinus -

(April 8, 1933 to July 22, 2015)

It is with deep sadness we will miss this man who modelled what he taught us. Dad slipped into glory on Tuesday morning after a recent, sudden decline in health, dying unobtrusively as he lived.

Beloved husband of Nesta, who nursed him tenderly to the end.

Cherished father of Peter (Maria), Martin, Wilma (Bill) Lobbezoo, Lloyd (Cathy) and Len. Gentle, patient Opa to fourteen grandchildren and five great-grandchildren for whom he prayed regularly.

Faithful husband to our mother, Corrie, until her death over ten years ago.

Loving brother of Henk (Anne), Corrie (Leen) Overvliet, Wim (deceased) (Rulie) and John (Joanne).

Those who knew this prayer warrior saw 1 Corinthians 13 lived out. He had a large heart for people, regardless of age, status, gender or race and his constant desire was to share the hope of the gospel with all he met. He knew he was far from perfect, realizing he was simply a sinner saved by grace.

Though our eyes brim with tears, we rejoice, knowing he has received the affirmation of the God he loved, "Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter in!"

Friends will be received at the Beckett-Glaves Family Funeral Centre, 88 Brant Avenue, Brantford, ON on Saturday 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. and on Monday from 10-11 a.m. A Funeral Service will follow in the Chapel on Monday at 11 a.m. Interment.

Donations to WEC International, 37 Aberdeen Ave., Hamilton L8P 2N6 or his granddaughter Deeana's missionary work would be appreciated.

CAMPBELL, Sheila Grace Campbell Obituary | Print |

CAMPBELL, Sheila Grace -

Campbell_SheilaAt home, surrounded by her loving family, entered into rest on July 21, 2015, at the age of 86; just one month short of 87.

Cherished wife of Al "Alfred" for 65 glorious years. Despite her varied interests she found time to raise five wonderful sons, Ian, the late Chris (Tess), Kevin, Nick (Debra) and Derek (Ingrid). She had six grandchildren, Nathan and Katrina, Matt and Laurel, Katlyn and Kassidy. Also two great grandchildren McKenna and Kendra.

Best described as a human dynamo, she picked peaches at Farmerette Camp in her teens and graduated as an R.N. from the St. Joseph's School of Nursing, class of '49. Sheila helped start the Jack and Jill program for pre-school children before kindergarten was introduced at the Caledonia Public School.

She was the first Curator of the Caledonia Museum, mounting many interesting displays in the Library Building before leading the drive to move the Museum into the Town Hall; next to replace the Town Hall Cupola.

After retiring from this, she plunged into furniture refinishing, upholstery and chair caning. Then she pursued art; taking lessons at Hagersville High School, R.B.G. and Mohawk College, and later personal instruction in Chinese Brush. Next came quilting and after a time became past president of the Hamilton Quilters Guild.

She always found time to provide love and encouragement to every member of the family; and did not deserve the terrible scourge of cancer which plagued her for the last several years.

We are thankful to C.C.A.C. for the wonderful care they provided, and especially the dedication and sympathy from nurse Ramie.

Following Sheila's wishes, cremation has taken place, and she has returned to the stars. Family and friends are invited to celebrate her life with a memorial service at the Cresmount Funeral Home, 322 Fennell Ave. E., Hamilton, Ontario on Tuesday, July 28th at 11 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Sheila to the Royal Botanical Gardens (905-527-1158) or www.rbg.ca/donateonline would be greatly appreciated.
