Condolence from Ron, Marla, Miranda and Meredith Schultz sent on April 2, 2018

Our deepest sympathies to the Schuitema family on the passing of your dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Willy was such a sweet lady. She was special to us. We got to know Willy as she was a very close friend of Ron’s mother, Martha. They would take our little girls, Miranda and Meredith, out with them on their road trips, or to Tim Hortons after church. Our girls would tell us that they were “going out with the grandmas”. We are blessed to have known such a wonderful lady with a heart for God and others. No doubt her reward in Heaven is great.

Thinking of all of you today & praying God will wrap his arms of comfort & peace around you as you grieve the loss of Willy. She was a special lady, who fiercely loved her family. Even though she faced many heartaches in her life, she always seemed to be quick to smile & share a laugh. We were blessed to have known her.
