Simkje “Simone” Van Seters
1926 – 2022
On Monday, JULY 11, 2022, the Lord took into His eternal Glory, Simkje Trijntje “Simone” Van Seters, at the age of 96 years.
Simone was born on June 8, 1926, in de Tijnje, The Netherlands. She married her first husband, Maarten Pouwelse on May 2, 1951. After the passing of her first husband Maarten, Simone immigrated to Neerlandia, AB, in 1991, to be close to her daughter Janny and her husband Joop Harthoorn and their children. In 1996 she moved to Coaldale to remain close to her daughter and her family. There she met Cornelis Van Seters and they were married on May 30, 1997.
Simone loved the Lord and His church and faithfully worshiped her Creator throughout her life. Not perfectly…. but always in her own quiet ways. Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren gave her always immense joy and she loved them from the bottom of her heart. It was her constant prayer that her Lord would work in all of them the desire to faithfully walk in His ways.
We are thankful for having received a faithful and caring mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She has been an example to us by her walk of life. We give therefore thanks to our Heavenly Father for this.
Simone is survived by her daughter Janny and her son-in-law Joop Harthoorn, 8 grandchildren, and presently 26 great grandchildren, her sister Ann Wikkerink from Vancouver Island, as well as many nephews and nieces. Besides her first husband Maarten Pouwelse and her second husband Cornelis Van Seters, Simone was predeceased by her parents Reint and Jantje Smit and 8 siblings.
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor death, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
A Graveside Service will be held at 2:00 pm, on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at the COALDALE COMMUNITY CEMETERY, 1310-1328 21st St. Coaldale, AB.
A Memorial Service will be held at 3:00 pm, on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at the CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCH, AB-3 W, Coaldale, AB.
