Obituary: Mullenders, Hendrika Mathilda, 1949-2009
Hendrika Mathilda Mullenders (Westerink) was born Sept. 12, 1949 in Lisse, The Netherlands, to Jan Willem and Stephenia Westerink, and passed away July 19, 2009, in High Prairie after a brave and long battle with cancer at the age of 59 years.
Thilda is survived by: her husband, Jeff; and two children, Bianca Mullenders and Olaf (Wendy) Mullenders; granddaughter Emily Mathilda; as well as numerous family and friends in Europe and Canada. All already miss her energy and laughter greatly.
While a part of her was fiercely independent as evidenced by her moving out at 13, her love for her family and friends always took centre stage in her life.
Thilda married Jeff on May 13, 1968, and they enjoyed 41 wonderful years of marriage. Thilda gave birth to daughter Bianca Nov. 10, 1969 and proudly followed that up 18 months later with the birth of her son, Olaf, May 8, 1971.
A memorial service celebrating her life will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, 2009, at St. Mark’s Anglican Church in High Prairie.
Thilda requested donation be considered in lieu of flowers to the Canadian Cancer Society of the Lymphona Society of Canada.
Her memory will never be forgotten and her presence will always be missed. The gift of her life and energy will always overshadow the grief her passing has caused.
