Uncle Wallace, Neville, Marina and Perry,

Angela and I were saddened to hear of Aunt Whilhelmine’s passing. As a young boy, I would stay with you often and the sound her voice when we arrived always made me feel welcome and safe. That never changed as the years passed. I have so many warm memories of her kindness that I will always cherish.

All our love.
Ian & Angela Bonnell

Wallace, Neville, Marina, Perry and Families:

Aunt Wilhelmine was always special to me. I never saw her angry or impatient. She had a way of making everyone feel comfortable and welcome in the home she made with Uncle Wallace.
Whenever I visited from Calgary, she opened her home to myself and my family. We were treated to excellent homemade meals, baked treats and lots of stories that led to warm memories.
Each year she sent my children a gift at Christmas, a gesture that reflected her generous good nature.
As one would say, “She was the salt of the earth.” She was well loved, and will be well missed.

Love always,

Dave, Sheila, Stephen & Alexandra Pennell
