In Celebration of

Alicia Maria Oldenhof

January 17, 1946 -  March 3, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce that on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, Alicia Maria Oldenhof (née Tinnemeier), loving wife of Harm, caring mother of John (Izabella) and Alexandra (Michael), and adoring grandmother of Eva, Nathan and Lukas passed away after a courageous and determined fight with cancer.

Alicia and her husband Harm emigrated from the Netherlands to Canada in 1967 where they started and build their new life together. After a return to the Netherlands for several years, they returned to Canada to make Canada their final home. Alicia was a supporting wife and guiding mother. She was the pillar that allowed her and Harm to build a successful life in Canada and provide everything for their children. Blessed in life, Alicia and Harm were able to spend many years travelling the world, making friends along the way. Alicia’s battle with cancer revealed how deep her and Harm’s love was for each other.

She will be remembered and missed for how she was steadfast in her Christian belief, and how she touched the people around her and made them better people.

Friends may call at the Turner & Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W. on Sunday, March 8, 2020 from 3-7 p.m. A Chapel Service will be held on Monday, March 9, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.

Dear Harm, John and Alexandra.

It seems like it is only a few days ago I met you all in Toronto, at the end of 2018. Although it was only a few hours we spent together I remember seeing clearly how both open and close your relation as a family was. Close as I could see the connection. Open as you have all your own view/perspective on life and were able to share those opinions on a solid basis of mutual respect. I saw your wife and mother being the center point in this family.

Now you will have to learn to find your way, individually and together without your wife and mother. We wish for you all that you will find that way.
We hope that you can find comfort in each other and in your conviction and that the funeral may not only be sad and difficult, but also a beautiful and worthy goodbye.

and share the love and memories.

Warm regards from Leeuwarden,

Alfred & Hendrika Kooi
