Fenna van Zoeren Obituary

Fenna Jantina van Zoeren
October 19, 1932 – January 11, 2024

Fenna passed away peacefully at the age of 91 surrounded by love both near and far.

She is predeceased by her husband of 53 years, Evert, young son Jan Willem, daughter Francis, son-in-law Ian, and brothers Seine, Jan, and Gezienus.

She is fondly remembered by her children Ena, John (Penny), and Barb (Jim); grandchildren Tabitha (Koen), Donnie (Emily), Dana, Kaitlin (Vance), and Rachele; great-grandchildren Jake, Max, Sam, Tamara, Bodhi, and Emery; and sister Truus.

Emigrating from the Netherlands in 1954, Fenna and Evert settled in Port Alberni. Fenna expertly balanced childcare, homemaking, and supplementing the family income. Her hobbies included knitting, playing cards, and cooking traditional Dutch recipes. Fenna loved travelling, spoiling family and friends with delicious Christmas baking, staying active, and most of all, spending time with her family.

Private, family interment will take place on Friday, January 19th at 11:00. Arrangements for a memorial service are pending.

We are deeply grateful to the many doctors and nurses who provided Fenna with the utmost care during her stay at WCGH, Dr. White for his many years of expert care, and the Reverend Curtis Korver for his compassionate calls and visits.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Fenna’s memory may be made to one of these charities that reflect her heart: the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, the Alberni Valley Christian Reformed Church, the West Coast General Hospital Foundation, or UNHCR Refugee Sponsorship.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
