Christine Mudde, a resident of the Osgoode Care Centre for the past two years, passed away there on Sat., May 5, 2007. She was 92.
She was born in Holland on Feb. 3, 1915, and was the eldest of four children born to her parents Martinus and Cornelia VanderWoerdt (nee Trapman). She lived in Holland until 1953 when she immigrated to Canada and settled in the Brinston area.
She was a member of the Community Christian Reformed Church in Dixon’s Corners, and will always be remembered for her stead fastlove of the Lord. She enjoyed playing the organ, the violin, and a competitive game of scrabble. Her excellent cooking was appreciated by many, as was the abundance of fresh produce from her garden.
She is survived by her children Corrie Brunsting of Brockville, Bram (Gerda) Mudde of Iroquois, Martin (Wilma) Mudde of Ottawa, Joe (Jacquie) Mudde of Constance Bay, Bert Mudde of Brinston, Jack (Anne) Mudde of Stittsville, Audrey (Weipo) Bruining of Morrisburg, Christine (Neil) Vandermeer of Iroquois, and Ron (Denise) Duprey of Ottawa. She was a cherished Oma of 24 grandchildren and 38 great-grandchildren. She was the dear sister of Adri VanderWoerdt of Holland. She was predeceased by her husband Teunis, her brother Gijs, and sisters Ploon deHaan and Cornelia DeVries. She is also survived by nieces and nephews.
Friends called at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home in Williamsburg on May 7. A service of Thanksgiving for Christine’s life was held at the Community Christian Reformed Church in Dixon’s Corners May 8 with Rev. Clarence Witten officiating.
Interment was at New Union Cemetery in Williamsburg. The pallbearers were grandsons William Bruining, David Vandermeer, Jonathon Mudde, Jamie Mudde, Jake Brunsting, and Ian Mudde.
