Dearly beloved wife of the late Ton and deeply loved mother of Rob, Marleen and Claudia. Dearest Mieke, you will be remembered with much love by many family and friends in New Zealand and the Netherlands.

And my soul spanned her wings widely
and flew across the
silent lands
as if she was flying home
