On Sunday, March 31, 2024, in her 93rd year, the Lord in his wisdom called home his beloved daughter, Johanna Engelina DeWeerd.

Dearly missed by her children Henrietta and Arnold Groeneweg, John and Nancy DeWeerd, Dave and Joanne DeWeerd, Carla and John Alblas, and Anita (2022) and Richard Hardman, along with her 17 grandchildren and their spouses, and her 8 great grandchildren.

They were married on July 7, 1961 and raised their five children on the family farm near Tavistock, Ontario.
