In Life, In Death, In Life Beyond Death
January XIXth, MMXII
Hon. Thomas Lukaszuk, MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Edmonton-Castledowns
Sad news to report. My mother, June Christina Adams Koopmans, B. Ed. (MCMLXVIII, 1968) died yesterday, January XVIIIth (18th) of complications from a series of strokes & heart trouble at the Misericordia Hospital. A retired educator who taught in Clandonald & in Edmonton (at Afton & Rio Terrace Schools) she was a truly good person with a kind heart. She loved not just her children, but her grandchildren as well. She also loved teaching as well, with her main focus being on students from Kindergarten II Grade III.
She was also a very good mother, grandmother, & church activity's person. She had a strong belief in the Lord, as well as praying IV the downtrodden. I am sad she is gone, but at the same time, she is finally at rest and free of pain up by her saviour's side. Now I don't have II worry about her anymore! I can only hope that wherever she is that she never stops worrying about me!
