Obituary of Hindrikje Wassing
March 5, 1930 – June 7, 2020
The Wassing family is sad to announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Hindrikje “Henny” Wassing. She will be dearly missed by her many friends and family across Canada and in Holland.
Henny was born in Ten Boer, Groningen, Holland on March 5, 1930 the sixth of eight children. Her family moved often and when she met Arnold Wassing, the love of her life, she moved with him across the Atlantic to Canada to start a new life in Manitoba. She was a brave woman travelling with three children under three years old. She never looked back and did not see her family again until she had been married twenty-five years and was gifted a trip to Holland.
Henny made many friends in the many phases of her life in Manitoba, Waterloo, Ontario and finally in Radium Hot Springs , B.C., where she loved her work at the front desk of Canyon RV Resort.
Henny had ten children who loved and miss her dearly: Ali (Grant) in Invermere, B.C., Johanna, John and Arnie of Radium Hot Springs, B.C.,Henry (Gail) of Anola, Manitoba, Marcia (Dave) of Plattsville, Ontario, Maria van den Boom (Jim) of St. Thomas, Ontario, Theresa (Earl) of Cranbrook, B.C.
Henny was predeceased by her husband Arnold Wassing and by two sons, Bart (Barbara) and Rick.
