It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our matriarch Trudy (Gertruda) Josephina Buysse (nee Derks) who slipped peacefully away from us to the arms of her Lord on Tuesday, February 6th.
Trudy is survived by her husband Alvaer, sons Kelly (Rhonda), Glenn (Lisa), daughter Karen (Brent), several grandchildren Kirstin (Steve), Hayden, Jared, Kai, Aaron and great grandchild baby Charlotte.
Mother was predeceased by brothers Theo, Joe, Tony, Bert and sisters Johanna & Jakoba.
We want to send out a special thank you to our Aunt Josephine Derks for all of her loving assistance during this difficult time.
Mother recently told us that her heart was growing weak because she gave it to all of her children and grandchildren.
Mass of Christian Burial was held on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church, Campbell River.
Mom, you will be forever in our hearts and thoughts. There are so many memories that bring a smile and show the wonderful person you were.
