June 27, 1950 ~ June 18, 2023

Marie Antoinette Verbeek passed away peacefully with her family at her side on Sunday, June 18, 2023 at the age of 72 years old. She is survived by her loving husband of 20 years, Ernie; son, Earl; daughter, Bobbi (Justin); step-son, Jeremy; step-daughter, Amanda (Matt); grandchildren, Brady, Robert, Nikita, William, Megan, Emerson, and Oliver; sisters, Beatrice, Bernice, Rose; brother, Tony; and brother-in-law, Neil; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and
in-laws that loved her dearly.

She was predeceased by her parents, Antoine and Marie-Anne Grenier; brother, Arthur; and sister, Cecile.

Marie was a wonderful Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Auntie, cousin, and friend. She was happiest when spending time with her family, whether that was playing cards, sharing a meal, making cookies with her grandkids, or spending time in the backyard. She was often tending her plants and flowers, in the garden, or in the kitchen baking, cooking or canning (and then sharing her many baked and canned goods with those around her). She loved bringing joy to people through food. She also found a lot of joy and comfort in being a part of her church community and praying for those around her. Her laughter, hugs, and many goodies will be dearly missed.

The family would like to express their thanks to St. Joseph’s Auxiliary Hospital for all the love and care given to Marie during her time spent there.
