Maria-Anna van Leeuwenkamp (née Nieman) February 9th 1929 – September 8th 2021 On Wednesday, September 8th, 2021 Maria-Anna van Leeuwenkamp passed away peacefully with her family at her side. Lovingly called “Riet” by her husband, Jan (died 2013) and soul mate; “Mom” by her 6 children – Harry (Martine); Mary (died 1994); Ted; Karen (Fred, died 2017); Ann (John) and Jack (Marie); “Oma” by her grandchildren – Jessica, Lianne (Jeremy and great-granddaughter Audrey), Evan, Julia (Pat), Tori, Yola (Oliver and great-grandson Mika), Thomas (Catherine) and Laura (Daisuke); “Riet or Tante Riet” by her very large extended family; and “Rita” by her friends and neighbours. She also leaves behind two sisters, Leny and Elly; and also her many sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews. A dedicated homemaker, she was totally devoted to her husband, to her children, to her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. She was well known for her happiness and her positive outlook on life, as she lived with gratitude. She was one of 14 children and married into a family with 10 children, she was very proud of her family in The Netherlands and especially of the Canadian clan.

We would like to extend our thanks to the caregivers at the CHSLD Bayview in Pointe-Claire, especially Grace, Jeffrey, Angela, Cecilia and Jennifer.

Our sincere condolences to all the family. Riet was always a very happy and caring person. We have met her a few times with other gatherings. God Bless.

I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She was such a wonderful person. She was a huge part of my childhood and growing up. Your home was one of the places I felt the most safe as a child, especially if I needed to work up the courage to tell my own parents of some ill-advised action on my part. That was all your mom.
I wish I could be there in person to share my condolences.
You are in my thoughts.
Take care of yourselves.
Dale

Rita was like a second mother to me growing up. Harry being my best friend we spent a lot of days playing in the house. I remember Rita's hot chocolate it was the best I've ever tasted. Rita will be in my memories forever. R.I.P.

I will always remember “Mrs. VanLeeuwenkamp” as a kind, gentle and welcoming person! I enjoyed her motherly ways as a child as she welcomed me into her home to play and on family camping trips. I enjoyed visits with her whenever I returned home to visit my mother in Dorion, she was always a pleasure to sit and talk to. It was wonderful to know that my mother had such wonderful friends as the VanLeeuwenkamps only two houses away. I still make her chocolate chip cake from the brownie cook book. It is the best. I know that she’s bringing a new light to heaven and when she’s finished visiting with her heavenly family members she’ll make time to have lunch with her Dorion ladies who have saved a place for her at the table.

Although we never met, I had the privilege of knowing just how special your mom was. Kind, happy, appreciative of her life and family, nurturing, soft and beautiful.
Ann, my heart goes out you, for you were there for her all the time and would do anything for your mom, unconditionally.
She is now peaceful and with your father and sister. Rest In Peace dear Rita. My condolences to all of her family.
