Obituary for Cornelia "Corry" Haak
Peacefully, surrounded by the love of her family, Cornelia Haak (née Greidanus), passed away and entered into the arms of her loving Saviour, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, December 30, 2017, at Alexandra Marine & General Hospital in Goderich. Throughout her 85 years among us, Corry was a loving, nurturing presence within the circle of her family, friends and community.
Corry will be lovingly remembered by her husband Gary (Gerrit) and their children, Clarence (Diane) Haak, John (Janet) Haak, Margaret (Jack) Kroes, Gary (Yolanda) Haak, Wilma (Raymond) Drost, Albert Haak, and Benita (Scott) Koeman. Cherishing memories of a special Beppe are 21 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. Corry will be missed by her siblings Jenny Valkenburg, Don (Greta) Greidanus, Burt (Riek) Greidanus, Joanne (Jack) Koetsier, and Leo (Eileen) Greidanus, and sisters-in-laws Theresa Greidanus and Grace Greidanus. Corry will also be fondly remembered by a large circle of family and friends.
In faith, we trust that Corry’s spirit will be reunited in eternal life with their infant son John Leo and her siblings Lieuwe, Jim and John Greidanus, Alice Bakelaar and Wilma Holland.
