It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Mother and Oma, Maria Van de Mierden. After a lengthy journey with Parkinson’s disease, Maria was forever reunited with her devoted husband Tony on the morning of Saturday March 14, 2020 at the age of 87. Loving mother of Diana (Philip Lindner), John (Karli Logan), Nancy (Mark Daniels). Cherished Oma of Jessica (Paul Szafer), Amy, and Joshua. Adored Great Oma of Cadence and Emma. Much loved daughter of the late Anthony and Francisca Van der Loo. She will be dearly missed by her brothers Albert Van der Loo (Reta), Anthony Van der Loo (Lynn), brother-in-law Terry Lee and sister-in-law Mary Van der Loo. Predeceased by her brothers Arnold Van der Loo (Anita), Frank Van der Loo, sister Anna Lee and nephew David Van der Loo. Maria will be fondly remembered and missed by her many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends here and in her native home, the Netherlands. Maria was a faithful servant to the Lord, actively involved in her church and chosen charities. She was a kind and gentle soul, whose indomitable spirit and smile could not be dulled by the challenges of her later years. For a cup of tea, game of cards, or Sunday dinner everyone was always welcome at Maria’s table. Special thanks to those who cared for Maria particularly Dr. Dragan, her special caregivers Joanne, Gigi, and the many caring staff members at Birkdale Place, Martindale Gardens, March of Dimes and Holland Christian Homes (Grace Manor).

A private Mass of Christian Burial was held on Tuesday, March 17th 2020 followed by internment at Burlington Memorial Gardens. Friends and family will be invited to a Celebration of Life to be held later this year.

When thinking of Maria, I am reminded of Tony as they were such a wonderful couple. For those, such as my family, who were fortunate enough to be invited to one of their Sunday evening suppers were treated to a special evening. Maria was a "master" at preparing the vegetables, setting the table and providing for a very special dinner. Spirited conversation around the table filled the evening and was only tempered when she served her delicious dessert. Always a gracious hostess, one left with the feeling of having shared a great experience with encouragement to return for another visit sometime in the future.
She is now at home with her family in Heaven and will forever be remembered fondly by all who walked on this earth in her presence.

To Maria's family...I had the privilege of knowing Maria as a front line reception person at Birkdale and so enjoyed helping her and the words in her notice say it all. She was gentle and kind and her smile was always present, had no idea she was in her 80's. With great respect and very fond memories of a fine lady. Sincerely, Laurie MacNab
