PLANK o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2008-03-04 published
PLANK, James Wilfred
Heard his name on February 29, 2008. His release from earthly pain was welcome and well prepared as his loved ones were gifted with time to acknowledge and share their love and admiration for this first-class man - a gentleman and a scholar, Jim modeled a life of strong Christian values, solid family ideals, and a deep work ethic. His joy was found in his love of the Lord, his lifelong sweetheart, his family, great literature, and fine works of music. Jim had the ability to inspire those around him to rise to greater heights morally, intellectually and spiritually, challenging us all to follow our own paths. His impact was felt by many after 34 years of teaching - many of these at Herman Collegiate Institute in Windsor. And, he lent comfort to many through his years of Pastoral Care in jails and hospitals, and his Elder work in his churches. His careers included selling subscriptions to Liberty magazine as a young boy, reining in run-away horses on his 2nd job as milkman, teaching and volunteering with the Alzheimer Society. Born on October 29, 1930 in London, Ontario, Jim spent most of his school years there before moving with his parents to a farm in Merlin, Ontario. Jim enjoyed a blessed and rich childhood. He will be dearly missed by his sisters Audrey LUMLEY (John,) and Marion WINDELL. He is predeceased by his parents Laura and Fred PLANK, his sister Helen ZANIER and his brother Fredrick PLANK. Jim takes temporary leave from his wife of 53 years, Mildred PLANK and his four children - Cynthia MORRIS, Grant PLANK (Linda PLANK), Amy ROBINSON (Claude ROBINSON) and Jennifer PLANK (Michael WATTS.) He is well loved by his grandchildren: Nicole PLANK, Jennilee PINO (Brad), Benjamin ROBINSON, Andrew MORRIS, Kimberly PLANK (Eduardo), Patrick ROBINSON, Nicholas ROBINSON, Helen WATTS, Dakota ROBINSON, Emma WATTS, Nakita ROBINSON, and his Great-Grandchildren: Lucca CONTE, Amilia PINO, Ella PLANK. We invite you to share our tears and joys in celebrating the life of Jim PLANK through your prayers of thanksgiving for a life well lived. At the request of James, there will be no funeral or public memorial service - his spirit lives on when you gather for prayer, raise your voice in song, or are moved by fine prose. Donations to the Foundation of Chatham Kent Health Alliance-Magnetic Resonance Imager Campaign (http://www.foundationckha.com/mri/mri.html) or charity of your choice, would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to McKinlay Funeral Home, 459 St. Clair Street, Chatham. (519) 351-2040.

VAN NORDEN, Julia (also known as Toos VAN NORDEN- WOUTERS, née Jacoba WOUTERS)
(February 8, 1919-February 26, 2008)
She died in Saint Paul's hospital in the presence of her loving and devastated husband Herman after prolonged and cruel suffering from two simultaneous malignant diseases. She is survived by her children and their spouses (Sophia VAN NORDEN and Roger DEE in Vancouver, Wilma VAN NORDEN and Robert ELM in Vancouver, and Simon VAN NORDEN and Laura RIZZI in Montreal,) by her grandchildren (Clare, Alexander and Natalie,) by her sister Johanna (Ans) PLANKEEL and her children and grandchildren, and by her sister-in-law Adela KELLERMAN in Antwerp, Belgium. Her early life was marked by struggle, first the financial struggle to earn enough for a university education during the Depression, and then working in the Dutch resistance during World War 2. After the war, she obtained her M.D. and was decorated by the Queen of the Netherlands for her wartime efforts. She came to Vancouver with her husband in 1951 where they established both a young family and a successful medical practice. As a professional wife, she made caring for her grateful husband a priority, while at the same time maintaining her independent opinions, activities and finances. As a mother she was a hard taskmaster, but she enjoyed seeing all her children earn advanced university degrees and establish professional careers. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to www.dyingwithdignity.ca.
