Emma Margaretha van Everdingen passed away at home in Calgary on Saturday, May 10, 2008 at the age of 75 years.
She will be dearly missed by her husband of 50 years, Robert, and her three sons David, Egbert and Allard and their families. She had a great love for life and threw herself into everything with great enthusiasm, especially her passions of gardening, weaving and her family.
