Corry and your family are fondly remembered by our family for her loving care of Scott and Warren, her generosity, and truly great spirit. Scott and Warren had a great time with the boys. I am sure that they got into lots of mischief. We have a lot of great memories of our time down the 2nd there in Listowel. Corry was such a great person and we share your sorrow at her passing although she will be in a better place. Doug, Sharon, Heather(Oelschlagel), Warren & Scott Kilpatrick

We just want to express our sympathy to all the family at this time. We have both had our parents go to be with the Lord and know the pain in the loss of loved ones. It is so good to know that as Christians we have the hope of Heaven and that we have God's promise of peace in our hearts now. May God bless you all. With our love. Roger and Ruth Gast

As I look at these pictures, I hear Tante Corrie's laugh. She was such a kind and gentle person.

For friends and family, "A Gaelic Blessing":
"Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the gentle night to you
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
Deep peace of Christ
Of Christ, Of Christ, the light of the world to you
Deep peace of Christ to you

Corrie was a frequent attendee of our 55+ club lunches at The Salvation Army and we enjoyed having her there. She was so appreciative of her cup of “hot water” when she arrived. We were sorry when she had to move away due to her declining health. She will now be at home with the Saviour she loved and served.

To each of the Van Oostveen Family. My heartfelt condolences of such a Beautiful Soul. As you celebrate the life of Corrie, a Mother and Grandmother and Great Grandmother, a friend to so many. Corrie was and is a Gift truly sent from the Heart of the Father to all who came and went into her life. She was so amazing and very humble. It is written the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in one's life. Love,joy,peace,patience, kindness, goodness,faithfulness, self control. When you walk with the Lord the fruit is seen. During my season of life with each of you. I had the privilege and honor to be a part of such love. Corrie was Blessed with a family that she cherished and loved above and beyond measure. I discovered through these years the love and lessons taught through Corrie the Love of the Lord and love of family are truly a very precious gift. This day as you reflect on the love and memories of Corrie. May you be surrounded in the Father's Love, peace that surpasses all understanding. Filled with Joy and laughter. To be in the presence of the Lord is the fullness of Joy. Corrie is most definitely to be celebrated. For her love and generosity was poured into everyone she met. Corrie truly is a replica of Proverbs 31 the radiant bride.
May the Lord Bless you all today. Blessed are they who mourn for they shall be comforted. Corrie has left quite the legacy behind. For it's not the material possessions. It's Love Family and lives touched. For each of you are a reflection of that Love. Thinking of you today.
