BUNK, Jane (nee Leeuwenburgh)

March 22, 1933 – Rotterdam, Holland
September 24, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Jane Bunk passed away peacefully on Monday, September 24, 2018 at the age of 85 years with her daughter Ramona by her side.

She was born in Rotterdam Netherlands, the oldest of five siblings. In her childhood she grew up and survived World War ll. Jane married Arthur Bunk in 1958 in Rotterdam. They decided to immigrate to Canada and settle in Calgary where they raised their family. It was here in Calgary where she made her home and had their three children, Patty Badour (Phil), Ramona Bunk, Alvin Bunk (Wei).

She was an avid reader, loved flowers, gardening was her passion. She thirsted for knowledge of the stars and the universe. She loved to travel and would make her yearly trip out to Windsor, ON, to see her daughter and son-in-law, Patty and Phil and her two grandsons, Ryan and Curtis.

She was an excellent home maker and took great pride in her home.
In 2016, Jane decided to leave her home of fifty years and moved into The Manor of Huntington Hills. Though her stay was brief she loved her new community and the friends she made there. Jane suffered a stroke in 2017 after which she made her new home at the George Boyack Carewest Centre. Even with her disabilities she never complained and was happy in the care of all the Staff. Thank you all for the love and care you showed our Mother.

Our loving Mother lived a peaceful life, always caring for the well-being of her three children. Although her health deteriorated later in her life she never suffered, she lived a happy life. She was blessed to see before her passing three generations of her family, which included: her two daughters, a son, two grandsons, and one great-grand-daughter. She had no worries at the end of her life and lived her life fully. We Love you Mom!
