Johanna is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Gerrit; her children Joyce and Ken; daughter-in-law Alana; grandchildren Gerrit and Braden; her brother Bert; sister Trix; as well as many cousins, sisters and brothers-in-law.

Johanna was a faithful Christian and loved music and flowers. She was a great cook and loved gardening. Johanna was a member of the Dutch Canadian Club and loved to Klompen dance. She was a wise, patient, independent, caring, strong woman with a fighting spirit that carried her though her many years. She will be sadly missed by all that had the pleasure to know her.
