After a brave fight with cancer, Nettie Anderson (nee Martens) passed away peacefully on July 23, 2023 at Riverview Health Centre at the age of 89 years. She was predeceased by her husband John, parents David and Justina Martens, 6 brothers, 1 brother-in-law and 6 sisters-in-law. Nettie is lovingly missed by her children Ken, Darlene (Ron), Tim, Janice (Ken) and Ley (Ray), 11 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 1 great, great grandson. She also leaves her brothers Pete, Bill (Mary), Richard (Hilda), sister Jessie and numerous nieces and nephews.

Nettie will be remembered for her strong faith and kind, loving spirit and was fondly known as the Cookie Lady thanks to her contributions to the food hampers provided through St. John’s Presbyterian Church, something she continued to provide well into her illness.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. John’s Presbyterian Church or the Riverview Health Centre Foundation. A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Safely Home

I am home in Heaven, dear ones, oh, so happy and so bright!

There is perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief are over, every restless tossing passed.

I am now at peace forever, safely home in Heaven at last.

There is work still waiting for you, so you must not idly stand.

Do it now, while life remaineth – you shall rest in God’s own land.

When that work is all completed, He will gently call you Home.

Oh, the rapture of that meeting, oh, the joy to see you come.
