Co-founder of Aldershot Greenhouses

Meina (Menk) Clazina Vander Lugt has passed away

"Peacefully at home, our beloved wife, mother, Oma and Great-Oma, Meina (Menk) Vander Lugt (née Kuijvenhoven) passed away and went to be with her Lord and Saviour in her 92nd year. Menk was born in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands, the youngest of 10 children, and passed away in Burlington, ON, Canada. Menk is survived by her husband of 69 years, Arie Vander Lugt, her sister Corry Hofland and numerous nieces and nephews in the Netherlands, as well as her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Menk was the loving mother of Gerald (Judy) Vanderlugt, Peter VanderLugt, Corinne (Martin) Tempelman, Pauline (Jack) Smit and Len (Denise) Vander Lugt. Menk was blessed with 16 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren: Bryan (Ashley; Myles, Tristan and Eric) Vanderlugt, Danielle (Mike) Asadoorian, Jeffrey (Kaela; Grayson, Adaline, Jaxxon) Vanderlugt, Jacqueline Cervantes VanderLugt, Elizabeth Cervantes VanderLugt, Philip Tempelman (ⴕ), Matthew Tempelman, Kyla Tempelman, Sam Tempelman, Robert (Michelle) Smit, Melanie (Samuel; Winston, Clark) Priddle, Julia (David) Scholman, Elana Smit, Aaron (Chelsea; Lena) Vander Lugt, Duane (Deidra; Mila) Vander Lugt, and Mark Vander Lugt, and special Tante to Erik and Cora Kuijvenhoven."

"In 1952, one week after their wedding, Menk and Arie immigrated to Canada and settled in the Burlington area. Together they founded Aldershot Greenhouses Limited in 1954. In 1957, Arie and Menk were blessed with their first born son, and their family grew rapidly from there. Menk was a loving, hard-working woman with a great sense of humour and a big heart – our mom and Oma loved her family dearly, and she was a loving witness for her Lord. Mom loved when her family came over for visits and meals (especially her Dutch soup), and her favourite past time was caring for her many plants."

"With much appreciation for services within our community, our family acknowledges the work of Dr. E. Kwong, the Home and Community Care Support Services, the Halton Region Community Paramedicine Program and as well the health care team at the Joseph Brant Hospital."
