Dec. 14 1934 – Oct. 16, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Maria Louisa De Witte.
Maria Louisa was born in Loonbeek, Belgium and moved to Canada in June of 1980 with her second husband Prudent De Witte. She lived in Canada for 33 years regularly going back to Belgium to visit her family. Maria Louisa worked as a home support worker for 10 years in 100 Mile House. She was always happy and loved cooking, cleaning and helping others. She was happiest when around her grandchildren and loved nothing better than to let you know how wonderful she thought they were.
Maria Louisa was predeceased by her father Camille Huyberechts and her brother-in-law.
She is survived by her mother Jeanne Vanderlinder, siblings: Louis (Angel), Marie (Gilbert), Simone and Nicole (Jeff); sons: Patrick (Martine, children Andy and Robin) and Eddy (children Maxim and Lisa); stepsons: Rudy (Vera, daughter Lien) and Eddy (Janna, children Nole, Owen and Merek) as well as other nieces, nephews, cousins and aunts and uncles. A special mention is needed for long-time friend Lillian; thank you for always being there for Maria Louisa.
Maria Louisa loved children and made a contribution to the Children’s Hospital every year; she would be honoured by any donations made in her name.
A celebration of her life will be held at the 100 Mile House Funeral Home, 225 Cedar Avenue in 100 Mile House, B.C. on Saturday November 2, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. with Father Vern officiating, reception to follow.
