It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear sister and auntie, Nellie Thyssen. It is also with great joy that we announce that January 29, 2011, was her first eternal day with her loving Saviour and Lord.
Nellie Thyssen was born Neeltje Elizabeth Thijssen in Holland September 18, 1916, firstborn of Cornelius John and Aneltje Thyssen, and moved to Canada at age 2, where her sisters, Bessie Nelson and Vera Molander were born. They farmed in Leedale and Nellie continued farming until 1965. Nellie worked for many families throughout the district and settled in Bentley in the late seventies. Nellie is predeceased by her mother, father, and sister Bessie Nelson. She is survived by her sister Vera Molander of Eckville and many Nelson & Molander nieces and nephews and great nieces and great nephews. Nellie was much loved by all and will be sadly missed.
