Obituary for Etje "Etty" Broer

Etje “Etty” Broer (nee Medema) passed away at her home on the 2nd concession of Kincardine, on June 6, 2023.

Beloved wife of the late Willem “Bill” Broer (2001)

Loving mother of Roxanne Broer, Denny Broer, Mark Broer, Kevin (Melanie) Broer, Stephanie (Keith) Clauson and Andy Hubbard.

Cherished grandmother of Wilson, Liam and Mikayla Bowes, Angel (Taylor) Bullock, Olivia and Dakota Broer, Nathan and Adrianna Broer, Jake and Hailey Broer, and Isabelle and Willem Clauson and Kieffer Wist. Great grandmother of Nora, Mya and Ava Bullock.

Fondly remembered by her brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, family in the Netherlands, friends and family.

Etty was a teacher, educator and an adventurer. She loved life, working hard, enjoying a good laugh, and giving her time for mission work. Etty could whip up a meal, including baked goods, for an army in no time and under short notice, she excelled at what is called multi-tasking. But what was most important to Etty was family and friends and no matter how much work needed to be done, there was always time to stop for a cup of coffee, and a chat. Etty touched the lives of many, and she will be missed.
