April 19th, 1928 – December 28, 2017
It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of their dear wife, mom, and oma at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital on Thursday, December 28, 2017. Undoubtedly, she was happy that last day, surrounded by family, and enjoying some chocolate treats with her lifelong companion. She was in her 90th year. Corrie was born in Den Hague, Holland and immigrated to Canada in 1952 at the age of 24. She is the beloved wife of Gerardus “Gerry” Duynisveld for 61 years. The two of them established a thriving farm business together outside of Ilderton and began a large family of their own. Cherished mom of Leonard and Harriet (Dortmans) Duynisveld of Ilderton, Helen and Jim Christie of Tara, Margaret and Peter Brain of Grand Bend, Mary Ann Duynisveld and Peter McMullen of Sudbury, Gene Jones of Sault Ste. Marie, and Connie Fuller of London.
