Jane Meulensteen

Adriana “Jane” (Peters) Meulensteen of Mount Forest passed away at Saugeen Valley Nursing Centre, Mount Forest on Tuesday June 5, 2012 at the age of 87.

Beloved wife of the late Johannes H. Donkers (father of John Meulensteen) and the late Harry Meulensteen. Loved mother of John Meulensteen and wife Jan of Clifford, Corrine Vaine and husband Barry of Mount Forest, Herb Meulensteen and wife Anna of Listowel, Joe Meulensteen and wife Faye of Mount Forest, Martha McClung and husband Rob of Wasaga Beach, Frank Meulensteen and wife Brenda of Atwood, Wilma Farlow and husband Ben of Ayton and Paul Meulensteen and wife Peggie of Listowel. Loving grandmother to her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She will also be sadly missed by many loving relatives in Canada and Holland and close friends.

Jane was a loving, generous, hard-working and ultimately selfless woman. Jane’s utter devotion to both her family and her faith proved to be the cornerstone of her personality and an inspiration to those she knew. Jane’s years of dedicated work supporting and helping her family grow eventually allowed them the opportunity to own their own successful farm.

As Jane grew older, her commitment to those she cared for continued to form the focus of her life. Her elder years were spent travelling with her husband and enjoying the many growing families she created. Jane believed very strongly in the virtues of hard work and sacrifice and we know she will be at peace now that she is reunited with her loved ones and God. She will be greatly missed.

Friends called at the England Funeral Home, Mount Forest on Thursday, June 7 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A prayer vigil was held on Thursday at 6:45 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at St. Mary of the Purification Church on Friday, June 8 at 11 a.m. Interment in Holy Cross Cemetery.

Memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of one’s choice would be appreciated by the family.
