Audrey Van Dyk
20 October 1948 – 29 January 2020

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
his mercies never come to an end.
They are new every morning.
Great is your faithfulness, O Lord!
Lamentations 3:22-23

VAN DYK, Adriana Ida, known as Audrey to her family and friends, died peacefully on Wednesday, 29 January 2020 with her family by her side. Her faith and trust in her Heavenly Father, and her sense of humour, carried her through her final days. Beloved wife of John for over 51 years. Much loved by her children and grandchildren, Stacey and Tim (Eleanor), Darren and Andrea (Lena), Kari (Malakai, Kain). She will be greatly missed by her siblings, numerous nieces and nephews along with their children, and many, many friends. Predeceased by her parents, Jan and Lena Langendoen, and her brothers Harry and Evert.

Born in Rockanje, Netherlands on 20 October 1948, Audrey immigrated with her family to Canada in 1951. She and John were married on 17 August 1968. After her children were grown, Audrey began studies at the University of Waterloo, graduating in 2005. In her later years, Audrey took art lessons and became an accomplished amateur painter. Along with John, she was a member of Grandview Baptist Church. Her family is immensely grateful for the compassionate care of the physicians, nurses, and support workers at Innisfree House in Kitchener, where Audrey spent her final days.
