Geertje “Greta” Heinen nee Kruk On May 21 2015, surrounded by her family, Greta took her final step and passed on to Glory. Born to Marie (nee Balder) and Cornelius Kruk on July 17, 1948 in Broek op Langedijk. In 1954 her family immigrated to Canada and settled in Port Alberni, BC. Her siblings were Jacob, Bill, Neil, Margaret, Simon and Peter. In 1969 she married Henry Heinen with whom she spent 48 years and lived in in New Westminster, Burnaby, Richmond and Langley. There were many traditions she had created that will leave lasting memories. Mother’s days, birthdays, reunions and any occasion where her family was together meant so much to her. Greta will be remembered for her infectious belly laughter and sense of humour. She found the mishaps in life the most funny. She will be remembered fondly by; Henry; Rick /Veronica, Cody/Alex, Jessica, Danton, Olivia; Jay /Chris, Amanda/Jamie, Becky/Russel, Alyssa/Clinton; Wayne/Lisa, Devan&Izelle, Bailey, Abby; Marie/Jeremy, Peyton, Mykelti, Carsen, Ashlyn. She touched many lives: the Kruk & Heinen families, Ron/Alice, friends far and near, work colleagues, fellow gardeners, paddlers and so many more.
