Jannette Gerarda


Went to be with the Lord

July 20, 2007

Netty was born on August 25, 1931 in de Koog, Texel, Holland. In December of 1957 she immigrated to Canada to marry the love of her life, Gerrit Westdorp in Kitimat, BC. Leaving Kitimat with their eldest daughter Marianne, they came to Vancouver Island where they had two more children, Brian and Sharon. The family moved to Campbell River in 1965 where they enjoyed a wonderful life shared with family and friends.

Netty was known for her willingness to help anyone, her home-made soup and knitting all those socks, she seldom missed going to watch any event that her kids or grandkids were involved in. After Gerry retired they enjoyed many fantastic times together especially with their camping and going down south.

Leaving behind to miss her is; her husband Gerry, their children Marianne, Brian (Kim), Sharon (Walter), their grandchildren Christiaan, Jeremy and Emily Herbin, Graeme, Garret and Mitchell Westdorp and her sister Marianne (Wim) Verbeem. As well all of her brother-in-laws, sister-in-laws, nieces, nephews and so many friends.

She has peacefully gone to join her parents, Christiaan and Martje (Kooger) van Maldegem and her sisters Tiny (Germ) van der Meer and Jo (Jaap) Jansen.
