Heaven has gained an angel: Florentina (Tina) A.C. Brouwer (nee deJong) passed away January 31, 2017 in Terrace BC surrounded by family.
Tina was born on July 21, 1928 in the city of Breda in the Netherlands. She immigrated to Kitimat in 1955 where she married her husband Jos. They had three children: Diana, Hedy and Rick. In 1965 the family moved to Terrace and settled on their farm on Braun’s Island.
She was well-known in the community for running Brouwer’s Farm until her
“retirement”, and then as an active member of the Happy Gang.
She was an amazing woman. Our lives will be much emptier without her –
we were blessed to have her as our Mom, Gramma, and Oma.
A memorial was held on February 4, 2017 at the Happy Gang center.
She will be greatly missed but will be loved forever in our hearts.
We know she will be looking down on us and gently guiding us.
