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.
