SLEIGHTHOLM, Jennet “Jeannie” JENNET “JEANNIE” SLEIGHTHOLM April 11, 1952 – April 10, 2024 The family of Jennet “Jeannie” Anna Sleightholm said goodbye to our precious mom on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, at the age of 71 years.
Jeannie was born in Lethbridge, on April 11, 1952, to parents Karl and Gladys Ernst. She was the eldest of 4 girls, Theresa, Lily and Christine. She graduated from Catholic Central High School, got married, and started a family welcoming two children Dallas and Carly.
Mom had numerous jobs though out her life. She enjoyed being social and working with people, which led to many lasting friendships along the way. Her sense of humour, generosity and thoughtfulness always shone through. She was fond of nature and outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, picking mushrooms and huckleberries with family in B.C. She was a very talented baker, making beautiful cheesecakes and prize-winning huckleberry pies. Over the years, she accumulated countless recipes that she recorded by hand in her recipe books. International cuisine was her favourite and she often made delicious meals for her family to enjoy. Mom had a fun and witty spirit, and her clever sense of humor always kept us on our toes. Her ability to laugh at herself taught us not to take life too seriously.
Becoming a grandma was the highlight of Jeannie’s life. Her 4 grandchildren Caitlyn, Bradley, Liana and Matthew were her pride and joy. Mom was our family cornerstone. Her strength, perseverance and ability to see the beauty in the small things will leave a special imprint on our hearts forever.
Mom, your work here on earth is done. We will celebrate your life and carry on knowing you are resting in peace with God and his angels.

VELDHUIZEN, Willemyntje “Meiny” VELDHUIZEN Our sweet mother WILLEMYNTJE (MEINY) VELDHUIZEN passed away peacefully Wednesday, April 10, 2024 at the age of 90 to meet her Lord and Savior.
She was a gentle, kind, loving mother who shared her love and her life with her husband Evert and their children: Jennie (Gill) Hakze, William (Wendy) Veldhuizen, Arie (Rhea Thur) Veldhuizen, Mayda (Lenn) Rollingson and Evelyn (Tim) Donkersgoed. She was blessed with ten grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her father Willem, her mother Metje, husband Evert, her daughter Mayda, her grandson Brian and son-in-law Len. She was also predeceased by her brothers and one sister-in-law and one brother-in-law: Henk, John, Tony & Mary Ann and Henry Vanden Brink, and her brother-in-law Ted Bouwman. She is survived by her sister Hennie Bouwman, sister-in-law Rose Vanden Brink and Bill (Tami) Vanden Brink.
Meiny was born July 25, 1933 and lived in Stoutenburg – a small village in Utrecht, Netherlands. Growing up she wanted to become a seamstress. Sewing was a strong passion and talent of hers. She immigrated to Canada after she got married and raised a family of five children and helped on the farm. Meiny loved to garden, cook/make preserves, sew, crochet, knit, and attend church & serve the Lord.
She loved being with family and friends, especially grandchildren and great grandchildren whom she adored and warmed her heart! Meiny had a wonderfully soft personality. Her quiet courage, strength in spirit, and her sense of humour that she had at times would be carried forward to those who knew her and loved her and she will be dearly missed by all.
