Johanna Paula Romar – Voorthuizen January 30, 1942 - January 1, 2021

After a long battle of cancer, she peacefully passed away at home on January 1st, 2021. Johanna Paula (‘Hannie’) Romar of Hallville, born on January 30th, 1942 in Medemblik, The Netherlands. Beloved wife of Filippus Romar of 56 years. They were married on October 16, 1964 in The Netherlands. She is survived by her husband Filippus, her children Frank (Shirlee), Marcel (Gea), Hans (Linda), Erwin (Francine) and her grandchildren Basten and Megan. She is survived by her sisters Rie Visser (late Meindert), Diet Douma (late Jan) and her brother Henk. She is predeceased by her brothers Jan (late Gre) and Leen (Simone). It was Johanna’s dream to live in Canada, so the family emigrated in the Spring of 1986 to Russell, Ontario. Subsequently, they moved to Brinston, Ontario and then Beausejour, Manitoba, in search of a larger farm. However, due to the harsh winters, they returned to Ontario and reside in Hallville. The family wishes to thank the numerous wonderful nurses, personal support workers (PSW) and Dr. Rattan of Kemptville for their kind and compassionate care that Mom received at home. Also, thank Pastor Ben Last of Southgate Community Church for his prayers and spiritual support. A private graveside service will be held at Spruce Haven Cemetery, Brinston.  A celebration of life is planned for the summer of 2021.

      Lieve mensen, zo ver van jullie verwijderd…
      …. we herinneren ons nog goed het samenzijn in Medemblik in 2017.
      Je wil het dan niet zeggen, maar in gedachten hou je er rekening mee dat sommigen van ons elkaar niet meer zullen zien. Wij gedenken ome Jan Douma, ome Leen en nu tante Hannie….
      Gelukkig zijn de herinneringen warm.

      Wij wensen jullie veel sterkte in de komende tijd, zoek kracht bij elkaar met de hulp van Boven.
      Met hartelijke groet, Klaas en Femmie.
