OBITUARY

Tina Enter

February 13, 1921November 26, 2018

On Monday, November 26th 2018, our Mother, Grandmother and Nana, Tina Enter, passed into the presence of her Lord and Saviour with her family at her side.

Tina was born in Haarlingen, the Netherlands. She married Rudolf Enter in 1947 and three children were born to this marriage. Rudy and Tina decided to move their family to Toronto, Canada in 1958 to give their children room to grow. Once the nest was empty, Mom and Dad enjoyed traveling and volunteering at HCJB, Texas and spending summers at Fair Havens Bible Conference Grounds. When Dad died Mom moved to Cambridge to be near her children. She was a devoted grandmother and great-grandmother and even in the late days of her life she remembered each of the great-grandchildren by name and prayed for them.

Left to mourn are her children: Margaret and John Bruneau, Camrose, AB; Rudy and Mary Enter, Kitchener (Brian & Holly, Jeanette & Tim, Rob & Liz, Dan & Jolene, Steve & Nicole, Kevin & Ariel); and Cathy and Brent Miedema, Cambridge (Cara & Dave, Craig & Sharon, Mike & Janell, Marlene & Mike); and 36 great-grandchildren; and very special family friends, Ellen and Keith Ambtman. One sister-in-law, Harma Ormel, and brother-in-law, Joop Vanderplaats, remain in Holland. There will be visitation at Maranatha Christian Reformed Church (94 Elgin Street South, Cambridge) on Thursday, November 29, 2018 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. The memorial service will be on Friday, November 30, 2018 at 2:30 pm at Maranatha Christian Reformed Church. Deepest thanks go to the very special staff of Riverbend Place for their loving care for our dear Mom. In our eyes, you were the hands and feet of Jesus.

In lieu of flowers feel free to support Crossroads Family of Ministries, Samaritan's Purse Canada or a charity of your choice.

ADD A MEMORY
Ralph and Arnolda Baker

To the Enter Family,
Ralph and Arnolda Baker would like to express their deepest condolences in the passing of your Mom, Tina Enter. We have many fond memories of visiting with Tina and Rudy over the years at the Baker Farm in Appin ON. Recently we spoke with Dan Enter, at our nephew's baptism in Cambridge. We had a lovely visit with Dan and he spoke very highly of his grandmother. We are sure that she will be missed by all. Margaret, Rudy, and Catherine, and families, our prayers are with you in this time of mourning.

Sincerely,

Ralph and Arnolda Baker.

With our deepest sympathy to all family and friends

My memories go back many years, to when we were children. Aunt Tiny visiting The Netherlands and our family. It would be an event I could tell based on the excitement of my mother in the days prior. And it was! Aunt Tiny brought an enthusiastic and lively atmosphere with her, with lots of laughter, humor, joy and maybe even more a listening ear. For a long time I believed she was one of my mom’s sisters, that’s how seamlessly the characters matched.

It is sad to realize these times are over. Yet wonderful to believe she passed on her character to her children and many grand-children etc and created wonderful memories that live forever in our hearts.

Cathy & Brent and to all Tina's family, There are no words that will help make this time better for you. Just know that we are praying for God's Peace & comfort to surround you as you go through this very sad time. Cathy, remembering especially those times at coffee after church, my Mom & yours sitting together, both with hearing difficulties, especially in the gym, but them, regardless, having wonderful conversations and enjoying each other's company. I'd like to believe, they've been catching up this week. Sending love & prayers from Caroline & Patrick
