It is with sadness that we announce that NEELTJE “NEL” BOEI, passed away on May 13, 2016, at the age of 95 years.

Nel was born in Leerdam, The Netherlands and immigrated to Canada with her husband, Cornelius Adrianus “Cees” and 3 of their children in 1959. Nel and Cees settled in Calgary, where she lived until the last 5 years, when she resided in Lethbridge, Alberta.

Nel is survived by her children, John Boei (Elvira), Bill Boei (Sue Martin), Lanie Fisher, and Len Boei, grandchildren Don Boei (Kelly), Wendy Boei Hahn (Brian), and Amanda Knight, and 7 great-grandchildren.

Nel was predeceased by her loving husband Cees and grandsons Jeremy Fisher and Andrew Fisher.

We would like to express our thanks to the staff of Cottage 3 at Park Meadows Village in Lethbridge for their care and compassion in caring for Nel for the last five years. Special thanks to Nicole for the extra love and care you gave our mom – you truly made a difference.

A family memorial will be held at a later time in Calgary. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to your charity of choice.
