Lucia Maria "Lucy" Myderwyk (nee Van Steijn)

April 27, 1954 - July 13, 2019

On July 13th at 12:04am, Lucy ended her 19-month battle with cancer in the comfort of her home at Myderwyk farms, surrounded by her husband and family. Lucy will forever be remembered by her husband of 44 years, Hans Myderwyk, as well as their children: Joe Myderwyk (Kim) of Wellington, Rose Ritchie of Midland, Kim Conley (Andrew) of Dublin, California, Jeff Myderwyk (Alicia) of Wellington, and Jessica Stellatos (Jerry) of Kingston. Lucy was a very proud Oma to Kyra-Lynn and Chloe Myderwyk, Jack Ritchie, Madison and Charlie Conley, Isabella, Sophia and Felix Myderwyk, and Anna-Lucia and Alexander Stellatos. Lucy was a loving sibling to 9 brothers and sisters as well as 8 brother- and sister-in-laws, all located globally, including a special place in her family for brother-in-law Fred Myderwyk. Lucy will also be missed by her church family at Emmanuel Baptist Church, her friends at TOPS, and the many adopted grandchildren who were privileged to call her Oma. A visitation for Lucy will be held at Whattam Funeral Home on Tuesday, July 16th from 6-8pm. The funeral will be held at Emmanuel Baptist Church on Wednesday, July 17th at 11am. Donations to the Princess Margaret Ride to Conquer Cancer would be appreciated by the family at http://bit.ly/2GbAsvV. Hans, Joe and Jeff have completed this ride for the past two years and Lucy was very proud of her boys while waiting at the finish line. They will continue to participate in the future in her honour and continue raising funds in the race to end cancer.
