In loving memory of Ria de Wilde who passed away on June 21st, 2012
Ria lived her life with love, grace and a gentleness that touched everyone who knew her. She is survived by her loving daughter Susanne, adoring son-in-law, and two precious granddaughters Emma (10) and Elisabeth (2), also by her devoted sister Christel (and brother-in-law Bjorn), brother Hans (and sister-in-law Willy), other family members in Holland along with her former husband Gerard Klomp and her mother-in-law Josephine Klomp.
Ria will be remembered by her many friends and the caregiver community. She devoted her life to taking care of her special needs clients, especially Buddy and Harry who were with her the longest.
As in all aspects of her life Ria faced her diagnosis of Acute Myleoid Leukemia with dignity, acceptance and peacefulness as she passed into spirit. Spirituality was the core of her being and the essence of her love for everyone she met.
A Memorial Service will be held at Yates Funeral Chapel, Tuesday June 26, 2012 at 11:00am.
In lieu of flowers please “pay it forward”. Do a kind and generous act for those around you.
