August 19, 1935 – October 3, 2015
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Sophia (Fien) Van Gameren (Ramkema), wife of Jan Van Gameren of 58 years and mother to Andre (Judy) Van Gameren, Ernst (Charity) Van Gameren, Alice (Don) Ramsey. Grandchildren Jessica, Denny, Tyren, Jenae, Joshua and Logan. Great grandchildren Brett, Caden and Kayson. Mom was born in Holland and in her younger years she endured a world war and worked in her family cafe. She always loved to talk and made friends easily.
She immigrated to Canada in 1970 with Jan and the kids. She was proud to be Canadian. Fien’s love of dutch culture would have her chatting with the other dutch ladies at her coffee parties each week. She loved her grandchildren and talked about them every chance she could. Her warm smile and her talkative nature always made her new friends. Thanks to the doctors and nurses at VJH for their care of Mom until the end. She leaves behind many friends and family in Holland and Canada. A tea gathering to celebrate Fien will be held at Bethel funeral chapel on Friday, October 16 at 3:00pm. In lieu of flowers a donation to a charity of your choice can be made.
