Cornelis “Cor” Kramer passed away
peacefully at the Bow Island Health Centre
surrounded by the love of his life, Clara,
and his four children on Tuesday,
December 21, 2021 at the age of

The world lost a bit of its humour and

Cor was born in Waarland, Netherlands

the family farm in Holland until they
immigrated to Canada in 1954. Cor quickly
settled into farm life in Lethbridge and
area working with his dad and brothers
while earning his welding certification. At
age twenty seven he moved to Woodstock,
Ontario to start welding. Shortly after, he met Clara van der Meer, who became his
beloved wife of 58 years. His son and daughter, Jack and Wendy soon arrived,
after which Cor moved his family back to Alberta to farm in Raymond. The birth
of two more daughters, Judy and Tricia followed.
In 1985 Cor bought land in Bow Island and farmed until he retired in 1996. Then
he and Clara started the good life, where Cor greatly enjoyed golfing, wood
turning, playing pool, making wine, gardening, and travelling. Cor loved to spend
time laughing and visiting with friends and his large extended family, including his
brothers and sisters: Jack, Ann (Dick), Marie (Dirk), Truce (Cor Appel), Hank
(Henny), Sam (Effie), Tina (Dick), John (Wiena), Pete (Lavone), Elly (Harm) and
Tony (Margaret). He was predeceased by his parents Simon and Marie, and his
siblings Jack, Marie, Hank, Sam and Tina; and his in-laws: Dick, Dirk, Cor Appel,
Henny, Effie and Harm.
He will be deeply missed by his beloved wife, Clara, and children: Jack Kramer
(Nicola Quigley), Wendy Hilsendeger (Steve), Judy Helfrich (Mike) and Tricia
Kramer (Malcolm Matthews); his grandchildren: LeAnna, Nikki, Emily, Tyler, Luke,
Conor and Tabby; and great grandchildren Kaidence, Bentley and Tanner; along
with Christine, Hailey, Graham, Walker and Mavrik, who he considered his own
grandchildren.
