Obituary of Wilma Lunenborg

Lunenborg, Wilma (Wiep)

87, of Leamington, Ontario.  With her family by her side and buoyed by the warm thoughts of her friends at the Leamington Mennonite Home, Mom took God’s hand and was lead home on March 4, 2018.  Born May 11, 1930 in Engwierum, Friesland, the Netherlands, she is predeceased by her parents Pier and Martje Wielenga.  Held dear for 33 years by her late husband Bruin Lunenborg (1923-1993).   Cherished by her daughters Martha, and her husband Patrick Laporte of Leamington, and Jeanette Lunenborg of Port Perry.  Devoted Oma of Nicole Laporte.  An unfailing source of treats for her furry family members Phin, Bruno, Suri and Blaze.  She will be fondly remembered by her cousin and long time friend William VanWieren of London.  Wilma was the youngest of four girls: Geert and Renze Dijkstra, Siem and Galen v.d. Kooi and Frouk and Willem Stuursma. Frouk, nieces and nephews continue to reside in the Netherlands. Wilma immigrated to Canada in 1960.  She resided in London, Ontario and was, along with her family, a member of the Dutch Christian Reformed community, including the First Christian Reformed Church (now Talbot Street Church).  She moved to Leamington in 2009.  Her nurturing and compassionate nature was evident in her affection for and respectful care of individuals with disabilities, children and the elderly.  Many thanks to the Administration and to all of the Staff of the Leamington Mennonite Home for your kind and attentive care and to our friends on the 1st floor of the Long Term Care Home for your love and laughter.  Together we made what sometimes seemed impossible, possible. Visitation will occur in the Chapel at the Leamington Mennonite Home on Wednesday, March 7 from 9:30 to 10 a.m.  Afterwards, her girls will follow their Mom east down the 401 to the A. Millard George Funeral Home in London, her hometown of almost 50 years.  A second gathering of family and friends will occur there on Friday, March 9, 2018 from 1 to 3 p.m.  Interment at Mount Pleasant Cemetery will follow.  Gifts in Wilma’s memory can be made to the Leamington Mennonite Home or the Alzheimer Society of Ontario.
