Celebration of Life
Saturday March 4, 2023
11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

May we have heavy hearts today and always, as we remember a woman with a gracious, humble, and uplifting spirit as the heavenly gates opened up for a mother, daughter, sister, and friend. May you officially rest in peace and watch down over each and every one of us.

Tess Janet Veenstra enjoyed spending time in the garden growing flowers, fruits, vegetables or in the kitchen cooking delicious meals and baked goods. Tess enjoyed spending time with friends and family especially at the local beaches. With the 29 years that Tess had with us on earth she impacted each of our  lives in various ways. I’m sure we can all share a story, experience, memory, or even a lesson that Tess has imprinted upon us. May we have and hold on to these as we remember a gracious, humble, and uplifting mother, daughter, sister, and friend. May you forever rest in paradise. We love you forever and always. Xoxo

Daughter to Dale Roets & Claudette Veenstra (Norman Plouff) Sister to Taya Veenstra and the late Beau Veenstra. Mother of Three Children one of which is pre-deceased. Granddaughter of Jim & Janet Veenstra and Ruth Walker (late Cyril Roets).

Dale and Claudette, my deepest sympathy to the both of you for the loss of Tess , I can’t begin to imagine the pain that you are feeling today. Tess, babe, it’s still so hard to believe that you’re really gone. There’s so many things that I still needed to say and we were supposed to do. I’ve known you most of my life , still not sure how I’m supposed to do all those things without you. I know that you’re with Beau again and everyone else we lost but no one here was ready for this. I will always remember the times we shared together and I will keep your memory alive and tell Ryder and Joyce how great Auntie Bean was and how much she adored them. I’ll miss you until eternity ends. I love you Tess. ♥️♥️ rest in the sweetest paradise
