Helena Petronella Maria Albers

 

Passed away peacefully on December 20th, 2022, in her 79th year.

Loving wife to Peter for 56 years.

Mother to Ann Marie (Paul) Fear, Marlene (Dean) Glanville, Patricia (Chris) Harburn, Pete (Leisa) Albers and Paul (Jenn) Albers.

Caring Oma to Natalie, Andrew, Anna, Darcy, Marina, Cody, Evan, Bryce, Chase, Alyssa, Peter, Lucas, and Chloe.

She will always be cherished by her 9 siblings and Peter’s 13 siblings and their families in Holland and Canada.

Missed by her pet Westie Kaylee.

Lanie had an outgoing personality, she loved to have fun and wanted to experience all that life had to offer. Lanie and Peter immigrated to Canada in 1967 shortly after they were married. Lanie and Peter lived and worked in several communities across Ontario before settling on the home farm outside of Brussels on the 4th of Grey in 1974. Lanie enjoyed being active, taking many walks including the 4 day walk in Holland. She learned to swim at 50 and danced every chance she got. She loved cooking, canning, baking, gardening and spending time with family. Lanie was always on the go. She loved driving, visiting friends, shopping and playing the slots. Lanie and Peter loved travelling to many countries around the world. Their most memorable vacation was their trip to Cuba in 2019. They had so much fun together. Lanie was a hard worker, she was humble, inspiring and had a great love for her children and grandchildren that will last forever. She was very proud of her family. She always knew how to make them laugh and made them feel so loved. We have fond memories of Oma’s Sunday Breakfasts and her delicious homemade dutch soup with those little meatballs as well as family time spent together. When out and about, we all loved stopping for a vanilla ice cream cone with Oma. Lanie and Peter’s marriage was one to admire, they built a life together that they are so proud of, always walking life’s journey side by side. Lanie’s love for Peter was especially evident during her final journey with Alzheimer’s.
