Ouwerkerk, Willem (Bill)

Willem (Bill) Ouwerkerk, beloved husband of Nell Ouwerkerk, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011, at the age of 79 years.
Bill will always be remembered by his family and friends for his love of gardening, fishing and reading.
After his retirement, Bill cherished greatly the friendship and camaraderie he and Nell developed with what became his “coffee family” in Fort Macleod.
Bill will be deeply missed by his beloved wife Nell; his children, Hetty Jo Schultz, Brian (Karen) Ouwerkerk, Joanne Grace, Sharon Ouwerkerk, Pete (Melanie) Ouwerkerk and Richard Ouwerkerk; and grandchildren Cassie and Makenzie Schultz, Ian and Graham Ouwerkerk, Kelly (Sarah) Norgard and Dustin Ouwerkerk.
Bill is also survived by his brothers and sisters, Anne Vanee, Tony (Korrie) Ouwerkerk, Cor Ouwerkerk, Irene (Wayne) Hollander, Maria Still and Alice Ouwerkerk; his brothers- and sisters-in-law Bill Van Waardhuizen, Corry Aleman, Hennie (Jack) DeKoning, Mary deMooy and Joan Van Waardhuizen; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
At this time, Nell and children would like to extend their sincerest appreciation to all those who brought food, cards and condolences throughout this difficult time. Words could never adequately describe our appreciation for the kindness and support shown to us.
Special thanks also to Rev. DeLeeuw of Holland; Chris and team at Eden’s Funeral Home; the Ladies Aid of Netherlands Reformed Congregation for the wonderful lunch they served. All of your excellence and hard work made the day one of honour for Bill. Again, deepest thanks to all. Nell Ouwerkerk and family.
