elevated P5kxC Obituary

elevated P5kxC Our beloved mom, oma, sister, aunt, and friend has left this world to go to her eternal home.

elevated P5kxC Antonia “Oma” Hendrika den Houdyker (nee van Rijnsoever, Dykers) died on October 12th, 2023, in her 95th year, surrounded by family at her new home in Aurora.

elevated P5kxC Born August 10th, 1928, in Vleuten, the Netherlands, Antonia bravely boarded a boat to Canada in 1954 and left Holland with her soon-to-be husband Arnold to start a new life together. They eventually purchased a home and raised two daughters (Doreen and Dianne) in Willowdale, where Antonia remained for more than 60 years. Ten years after Arnold’s passing in 1972, Antonia married Tony den Houdyker, and the two lived happily together until Tony’s passing in 2004. Antonia’s marriage to Tony resulted in a wonderful blended family, with the den Houdykers becoming a vital part of her life.

elevated P5kxC Antonia was a devoted mother to Doreen and Dianne (Craig, decreased); loving stepmother to Mary (Harold), Joanne (Brian), Shirley, and Ron (Donna); proud Oma to Cameron (Andrea), Tyler, Reid, Drew, Kendra, Averie, Tanya (Bob), Katrina, Marc, Tiahn, and Tahla; ‘great-Oma’ to Harrison, Clark, Brayden, and Riley; and a beloved sister to Wim (deceased), Jan (deceased), Hanni (deceased), Miep, Theo (deceased), Pauline, and Cees.

elevated P5kxC Antonia was an inspiration to all and a courageous woman of faith. We are consoled with the knowledge that Antonia is rejoicing in the presence of her heavenly Father.
