Lizabertha "Bep" Rijgersberg
Peacefully passed away on Monday, October 7, 2019 at Oakwood Park Lodge, at the age of 90. Bep has been reunited with her beloved husband Hendrik (1976). Loving mother of Hans (Mary), Cornelia (Rene) Smid, Wilhemina (Richard) Florio, Joe (Christina), Nico (Denis), Betty (Hank) Kubiak, Margaret (Peter) Bock, and Audrey (Peter) Read. Cherished Oma of 16 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandmother of 1. Lizabertha will be lovingly remembered by her family here in Canada and in the Netherlands. As we reflect on her life, we remember a special lady who had a fantastic sense of humour, and was a talented seamstress, knitter and crocheter. Tons of her blankets and throws, were made with love for everyone to enjoy and stay warm. A special thank you to the nursing staff and doctors of Oakwood Park Lodge for taking great care of Bep for the past year. A special thank you to our sister, Margaret for being with Mom, day and night, through the years, especially when our family wasn't able to be present. In accordance with Lizabertha's wishes, cremation has taken place. A graveside service will be held at a later date, at Winona (Fifty) Cemetery, Winona. Arrangements are entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). Memorial donations given to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, would be appreciated by the family.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
