We regret to announce the passing of Geertruida (Truus) Verhage on July 7, 2010, at the age of 87 years. Truus was a resident of Lumby since 1951. She was actively involved in the Vernon Pigeon and Poultry Club and the Old Age Pensioners Association. Truus will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her family: Cors (Linda) of Peachland; Nick of Lumby; Lydia (Bob) Bourne of Lumby; and Trudy Annand of Vernon. Truus’ 11 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren will have treasured memories of their Oma. Truus was predeceased by Cors, her husband of 49 years, her daughter Johanna and son Adriann. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, July 12, at 11:00 am at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Lumby, with the Reverend Ryszard Hanaczewski, Celebrant.
