Johanna Carolina Beunk-Petri, born April 23, 1922, died on October 23, 2018, in Normanna Care Home in Burnaby, BC. Born in Naaldwijk, The Netherlands, the fourth child in a family of six children, she immigrated to Oakville, Ontario in 1962 to marry her soon-to-be husband of almost 40 years, Jacobus Beunk. "Cobus" as he was known to many died in 2003. Johanna had one son, Andrew, a "very-dear" daughter-in-law, Kim, and three grandchildren, Colleen, Andrea and Jacob. Johanna was the last surviving sibling in her family. "Oma" lived with Andrew's family for 6 years before having to move into a long-term care home 7 years ago. She will be deeply missed by them. She will also be missed by a number of "newer" friends from the New Westminster Christian Reformed Church who faithfully visited her over the last 9 years that she lived in Burnaby.
