RIA (ZUS) DEGROOT Passed away peacefully in her home in the afternoon of November 21, 2012, surrounded by her loving family. Ria was the final member of the Besselaar family that immigrated from Haps, Holland in the early 1950's. She was wife of Tony Degroot of Hensbergen and Degroot Landscaping and mother to Marion, Hedy, Susan and Andy Degroot. She will be truly missed by her children, their spouses, her grandchildren and great- grandchild. The family would like to express their sincere thanks to Anna Iskra for her committed dedication, love, kindness and support to both Tony and Ria during their last segments of their life. The family would also like to express many thanks to the PSW's, CCAC and the palliative team who helped us for many years and for all of their on-going help and support. Cremation will take place with the immediate family and a joint celebration of Tony and Ria's life will be held at a later date. Donations in her honour can be made to the charity of your choice.
