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.
