I lift up my eyes to the mountains - where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth. On December 19, 2016, our loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Stoffer Van Der Veen, at the age of 84 years, went home to be with his Lord and Savior. He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Bieuwke. Stoffer also leaves behind eight children; Joanne (Walter) Schnieder, Ann (Adrian) Abma, Richard (Carla) Van Der Veen, John (Roberta) Van Der Veen, Charles (Doreen) Van Der Veen, Margareth (Rick) Abma, George Van Der Veen and Sarah (Grant) Burt as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren and his brother, Derk and sisters; Corry and Truida. Stoffer was born on January 31, 1932, in Oude Pekela, Groningen, the Netherlands to Stoffer and Bouke (Hensen) Van Der Veen. He immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands in 1952 and met his future wife Bieuwke in Edmonton, AB shortly after. They were married on July 2, 1954. There will be a viewing at Rose Garden Chapel on Tuesday, December 27, 2016, from 7-9 p.m. A Private Internment for the family will be held on Wednesday, December 28, 2016.
