"RIZ" 2008 Obituary


RIZZI o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-03-01 published
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
