Obituary of Hendrika Kelderman

KELDERMAN, Hendrika Bay View At the age of 100, Hennie Kelderman, of Bay View, passed away peacefully in Shiretown Nursing Home, Pictou on May 30, 2022. Hennie was born in Ede, the Netherlands on December 28, 1921. She married Johannes Kelderman in 1946 and moved to Canada with their new born baby Bert in 1948. They were a sponsored family of the Hooper family in Pictou, and in 1952 moved to their own farm in Bay View, with a second son John. Hennie played a major role in the growth of their farm as well as a regular contributor to the well being of her community. She played an active role in the Bay View community as a member of Women’s Institute, Community Club, 4-H leader and many other volunteer positions. After losing her husband in 1987 she stayed in the family home until 2004 when she moved to Havenbrook senior’s apartments until needing full time care at Shiretown Nursing Home. We are grateful for the kindness and care by Dr. McLaughlin and the Shiretown Continuing Care staff. Hennie is survived by her sons, Bert (Joyce) and John (Dianne); grandchildren, Jane, Marie, Amy, Dion, and Adam; great-grandchildren, Charlotte, Mallorie, Larissa, Hayden, Kyle and Jonah. Public Graveside Service will be held 2:00 PM Friday June 3rd in Heatherdale Memorial Gardens, with Jacquie Ross officiating. Family flowers only please.
