Styntje ((Tina)) Huizing (Van Nes)

March 17, 1931 - August 7, 2014


Tina (Styntje)  Huizing (nee Van Nes ) was received into the glory of her Lord on August 7, 2014 in Abbotsford, BC.  Tina was born March 17, 1931 in Rijsoord, Netherlands .   She lived and worked in the Netherlands, earning her nursing training at VanderBergstichting, Bethesda and Eudokia in the Netherlands, working until  1958 when she moved to Alberta, Canada.  Tina married Berend (Bert) Huizing on January 22, 1959 in the Netherlands.  Shortly thereafter they returned to Canada to build their life there.  Tina was passionate about her love for the Lord, her family, gardening, and animals.   Mom was a great example of showing love to all creatures of our God and King, and was passionate about helping those for whom life was not easy, being a daily example of being the hands and feet of Jesus.   She was very involved in working with the physically and mentally challenged throughout the years; providing respite, and forging loving friendships with so many.  Tina is predeceased by her parents Flora and Klazina Van Nes, her siblings Annie Schop (Van Nes), Kees Van Nes, Dirk Van Nes and Bill Van Nes.  She is survived by her beloved husband Bert Huizing, and their children,  Chris (Diana) Huizing, Phil (Karen) Huizing, Howard (Sarah) Huizing, Joy (Bart) Saathof, Marlene (Andreas) Kammenos; their grandchildren, Nicole (Justin) Dudney, Joel Huizing, Megan Huizing, Amanda Huizing, Kari Huizing, Leah Saathof, Daniel Huizing, Bethany Saathof, Luke Saathof, Caleb Saathof, Nicholas Kammenos, Anna Kammenos, Joel Kammenos, Liam Huizing, Noah Huizing and Elijah Huizing, and their great grandchildren, Levi Dudney, Malachi Dudney and Hannah Dudney; also her honorary sons Sebastian (Anu) Naslund with their kids Asha and Jaiden and Zebulan Naslund.  She is also survived by her sisters Corrie (Van Nes) Meyers and Hennie (Van Nes) Wubs.  Her memorial service will be held on Thursday, August 14 at 1 pm, at Living Hope CRC, 34631 Old Clayburn Road, Abbotsford, with Justin Dudney officiating.    Graveside interment will be held at 11 am, August 14 , at Hazelwood Cemetery.  The family would like to thank all the wonderful Doctors and nurses who worked with Tina as she was treated for cancer, with special care to all the ER nurses at ARH who helped keep her as comfortable as possible in her last hours and supported our family.    Special thanks to Dr. Milne for his love, concern and compassion shown to our Mom.

In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to Covenant House in Tina’s honour.

Relation: Friend of familyl

We’re so sorry for the loss of your wife, Mom & Grandma (and all her other interesting nicknames!). She was so many things to so many people. When I think of your Mom, I’m reminded of her calm steadfastness, her love of family, her strong faith, her quick laugh, and her love of gardening. She will be deeply missed. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers that God will give you all you need in the weeks and months ahead as you adjust to life without her. May your pain be eased with the memories of the many happy times you shared together.

Love, Ken, Linda, Eric, Daniel, & Kari Groot

Dear Uncle Bert, Chris and Dianne, Phil and Karen, Howard and Sarah, Joy ad Bart and Marlene and Andreas,
I would like to send you our condolences on Tante Tiny’s passing. I always remember her as such a loving and happy aunt. She always had a great smile for everyone she met, and you always knew that she really was interested in you. I am mourning with you as you go through this very difficult time. I cry with you as you will lay her to rest. But, I also rejoice with you in knowing that she is no longer in pain, and that one day you will be reunited with her forever. Let us continue to hold on to that hope.
All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139….
…underneath are the everlasting arms….May you feel Him holding you during this difficult time.
Love, Marlene, Edward and girls.
