At 12:06am on Friday November 1st, 2019, Karsje Booy entered peacefully into glory surrounded by her family. Karsje was a young 97 years old. She enjoyed shopping at the Holland store and video chatting with family. Her favourite phrase was: “I have lived a fantastic life” and was grateful and positive until the very end.

She will be greatly missed by her children, Christine Hyink and her husband Matt of Canmore, Alberta, Karin Peeks and her husband Wim of Nijmegen, Netherlands, Johan Booy and his wife Joke of Hoogeveen, Netherlands, Ineke DeGroot and her husband Martin of Moorefield, Marja Iskarous and her husband Magdy of Veenendaal, Netherlands, Peter Booy and his wife Mari of , Neepawa, Manitoba, and Richard Booy and Lynda of Fergus.

Also missed by her 23 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great grand-children, Annette Grasman of Elora and Barb Ganley of Leduc, Alberta.

She will be fondly remembered by all who knew her. A special thank you to her Heritage River family and two special angels Corina Sipkes and Natasha Marx-Veldman.

My deepest condolences to Karsje’s family. She was a lovely lady. Karsje was my mother’s neighbour for awhile at Heritage River. My mother was suffering from dementia and was often confused about where she lived. Karsje was always very kind to her and sometimes they sat together outside on the patios. She was very proud of being so healthy at her age - one year older than my mother! May she Rest In Peace.
