JACOBA VISSER, beloved wife of Nicolaas Visser, passed away at Edith Cavell Care Centre in Lethbridge, on Thursday, December 19, 2019 at the age of 83 years.
Besides her husband, Cobi is survived by her children: Dini, Kees and Mary (Paul); grandchildren: April (Brett), Carly (Ken) Ashley, Malcolm and Matthew; and great-grandchildren: Elise and Blake as well as nieces, Diny and Willy and their families.
Cobi was born in Amsterdam, Nederland, survived the WWII starvation of the city and was forever grateful to the Canadian soldiers that liberated the city. She immigrated to Canada in 1967 with her husband and young family to start a new life. She enjoyed sewing, singing and volunteering. She was part of the Dutch-Canadian choir of Calgary and the Airdrie Community Choir and was very proud to have sung in the 1988 Calgary Olympic ceremonies.
She was part of the Airdrie Lioness and enjoyed volunteering with them, especially at the food bank. She moved to Lethbridge to enjoy retirement with her husband and a quieter life.
As per her wishes, there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honour to the Veterans Food Bank (#1, 4619 – 6 Street N.E., Calgary, AB, T2E 7C3) or a food bank of your choice.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Visser Jacoba October 14 1936..
Décès pour la Ville: Lethbridge, Province: Alberta
