Bertha Van Oort

It has pleased the Lord to take from our side our dearly beloved wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great grandmother, sister and aunt, Bertha (Bep) Van Oort (nee Guliker).
Born on December 30, 1935 in Nijkerk, the Netherlands, she immigrated in 1953 from the Netherlands to Agassiz, BC with her family and passed away at the age of 85 in Chilliwack, B.C.
Bertha was predeceased by her brother Evert Guliker in 2004 and by her sister Niesje Klop (Guliker) on May 1, 2021.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to Dr. Quentin Smith, Cathy Vrieselaar and the staff at Sunset Manor Assisted Living for their love and excellent care of mom in the past 6 ½ years. Also thank you for RCNA Home Care for providing respite for Dad. It is much appreciated!
