VAN DEN HEUVEL, Ardina – Age 102, Whycocomagh.
With gratitude for a long and happy life, our family
announces the death of our beautiful mother, Ardina Wilhelmina
(Selten) van den Heuvel, affectionately known as Moeke; she was
everybody’s Moeke. Our Mom went to her eternal home on
Tuesday, December 5th, 2017.
Ardina is survived by her sister Wilhelmina Raaymakers,
Holland; and children Josie (Joe) Peeters, Brook Village; Denny (Mary)
van den Heuvel, Springfield; John (Hilde) van den Heuvel, Springfield;
Corry van den Heuvel, Brook Village; Cathy (Colie) Campbell, Brook
Village; Nelly Munro, Whycocomagh; and Garry (Janie) van den Heuvel,
Brook Village. Ardina is also survived by her 22 grandchildren and 30
great-grandchildren who have all been blessed by the great love she
had for them. Ardina was predeceased by her parents, Johannes and
Catharina (Verstegen) Selten; her husband, William van den Heuvel and
their infant daughter Catharina van den Heuvel; her sister, Nelly
Selten; her brothers, Jo and Coos Selten; her son-in-law Graham Munro;
and her daughter–in-law Shirlene (Mac Kinnon) van den
Ardina was born in Langenboom, Holland, on December
13th, 1914. She grew up in her
beloved Holland and was one of five children. Ardina married
William van den Heuvel in 1947 and together they had eight
children. With the intent of providing a farm for their
children, if they so desired, they moved to Antigonish County, Nova
Scotia in 1953.
Ardina was everything good; a devoted wife, a most loving
mother, a storybook grandmother and treasured
great-grandmother. She taught us that the bond that makes a
true family is to love one another, respect each other and find joy in
each other’s lives. In her autumn years, Ardina’s
grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought her endless joy giving
her reason to go on living.
Just as she lived her life, gently, peacefully and with great
dignity, our Moeke left this world surrounded by love.
Putting our faith in God to grant her eternal peace, we her children,
will honour her memory by following her example of kindness, honesty,
love of neighbour and her love of God.
Ardina’s family will be receiving friends at the
Dennis Haverstock Funeral Chapel, Whycocomagh, on Sunday, December
10th, 2017 from 2 – 9 p.m.
Mass of Christian burial will be held in St. John the Baptist Church,
Brook Village, on Monday, December 11th, 2017
at 11 a.m. with Father Bernie Mac Donald officiating. Burial
will immediately follow in the St. John the Baptist Cemetery, Brook
Village. Memorial donations in memory of Ardina can be made
to the Central Inverness Palliative Care, Baddeck Continuing Care or
St. John the Baptist Cemetery Fund. Words of
comfort may be forwarded to the family at www.haverstocks.com
