In Celebration of

Anna Pronk nee van Doesburg

January 9, 1926 -  January 4, 2023

Passed away peacefully after a long and full life in the early hours of January 4th, 2023.

Beloved wife of the late Jacobus Pronk and devoted mother to Katherine Pronk and mother-in-law to Phillip Hoffer. Predeceased by her parents (Johannes van Doesburg and Klazina Filius) and brothers (Nicolas and Adriaan). Survived by many loved nieces and nephews.

Mom was a dedicated volunteer with the Auxiliary of the Lakeshore General Hospital for over 30 years. She will be remembered by her family and friends for being a strong woman who faced every challenge in life with courage and dignity.

Ma you will always be loved and remain in our hearts and never forgotten.

Cremation has taken place and an intimate celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

A special thank you to her CLSC nurses Ann and Rubina.

We are very sad about the passing of Tante Anny. We will remember her as a very strong woman. We keep fond memories of her emails and, above all, the visits to Canada, like last summer.
We will never forget her, our dear aunt who still spoke and wrote fantastic Dutch.
Our thoughts go out to you, Kathy and Phil.

My sincere condolences to you and Phil. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
