Obituary

Our sister and aunt, Grace Klooster entered her heavenly home on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at the age of 94 years. She was born October 1, 1926 in Appelscha, the Netherlands, the 3rd oldest child of Hinke and Froukje Klooster. Grace immigrated to Canada with her entire family in 1951, first settling in Raymond, Alberta before the family purchased a quarter-section of farmland just east of Rocky Mountain House in 1952. She lived on this family farm until moving to the Westview Lodge in 2016. When arriving in Canada, Grace worked in the sugar beet fields of southern Alberta but later worked as a housekeeper and nanny, including a short stint working in a hospital in Vancouver. Never having any children of her own, she enjoyed spoiling her nieces and nephews and was everyone’s favorite Aunt. Coffee time at Auntie Grace’s house was a special family gathering spot. She always had time for a family visit to catch up on the latest news. She enjoyed crafts and reading and loved watching TV game shows. She also liked touring and travelling with friends and family.

Her parents, her brothers Fred, Sint, Auke and her sister Winnie DeRuiter, preceded her in death. She is survived by her youngest brother Jake Klooster and 15 nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind many other family members and friends who will sadly miss her, but we rejoice that she is in her eternal home.

A graveside internment service and private service will be held starting at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at the Pine Grove Cemetery. Visitation is from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon on Tuesday, May 18 at Rocky Funeral Home.

The family would like to thank the staff at Westview Lodge and at the RMH Health Care Centre for their care and compassion. A special thank you to Kathleen for her extra kindness and support to both Grace and the family.
