FENNY KUIK On Monday, August 14, 2017, at Concordia Hospital, surrounded by her family, the Lord took to Himself our very dear daughter, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, and great-aunt, Fenny Kuik, just four days short of her 65th birthday. In recent months, Fenny suffered a number of strokes from which she did not recover. Fenny will be lovingly remembered by her father, Gerrit Kuik, her siblings, Grietje Gortemaker, Davida (Bruce) Tuininga, Henrietta (Bill) Raap, Jake (Carolyn) Kuik, Ben Kuik and Anita (Allan) Vanderveen, and many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews. Fenny was predeceased by her mother Johanna Kuik, her brother-in-law Bill Gortemaker, her nephew Craig Vanderveen, and her niece Amy Gortemaker. Fenny was born on August 18, 1952, in Carman, Manitoba. As a child, she suffered many bouts of serious illness. In August, 1958 the family moved to Winnipeg so that Fenny could attend the Manitoba School for the Deaf. At the age of 17 Fenny went to work at Premier Printing, a company owned by her father. She was employed there for over 40 years. For the past few years Fenny was in the care of Cornerstone Christian Care Society. There she got to know and grew very fond of her housemates and caregivers. She was a faithful member all her life of the Canadian Reformed Church, first in Carman, then in Winnipeg. Fenny enjoyed many things, especially her little and not-so-little nieces and nephews (and later their children), her pets, puzzles and games, visiting family and friends, and receiving mail for her birthdays and at Christmas. She really enjoyed her semiannual stays at her cousin Dorothy's farm. Fenny always had a very winsome smile for everyone. The family expresses special thanks to the staff of Cornerstone Christian Care Society for their loving care the past few years. Our sincere gratitude, too, to Dr. Kuegle and the nursing staff at Concordia Hospital N3E for their compassionate care during her recent hospital stays. In lieu of flowers, donations in Fenny's memory may be made to Cornerstone Christian Care Society, P.O. Box 367, Carman, MB R0G0J0. Viewing will be held on Friday, August 18, 2017, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Green Acres Funeral Home, Hwy. 1 East at Navin Road, just inside the Perimeter. The funeral service will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. at Redeemer Canadian Reformed Church, corner of Dugald and Bates, Winnipeg, Rev. J. Poppe officiating.

  • My sympathy goes out to Henrietta, Bill and family for your loss. May you find comfort and peace during this difficult time. - Posted by: Jon Anthony () on: Aug 21, 2017

  • My condolences with the passing away of Fenny. I have many happy memories of the times when we grew up together and when I stayed at the Kuiks. I wish you all God's peace and comfort especially at this time and in the months ahead. - Posted by: Willa Bosch () on: Aug 17, 2017

  • I was deeply saddened to hear of the loss of my dear cousin Fenny. I sat quietly reflecting on so many memories...working with Fenny during school agenda seasons at Premier when in high school...thinking of how ready she was to tease, laugh and love - as she was always so ready to give the best bear hug in the world. Even when there were long seasons between seeing each other - when she saw you, her face lit up and she would have one of those hugs ready for you. I reflected also on her trips to see my parents and how much fun she had with them. The 'teasing spirit' was a family trait and I know she and my Dad had a lot of fun together (and Mom of course). I am so very comforted by the promises of our faithful God and delivering work of our Saviour, to be able to fully know that we will see each other again in glory and be able to communicate in a wholeness that's prepared for us that our earthly minds cannot even comprehend. What a day that will be! Even though for now tears are still shed at our earthly loss, I am also extremely comforted to know that Fenny's family, my extended family, also stands firm in their unshakeable faith in the saving work of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. I love you Fenny. I love you my family. - Posted by: Audrey Kuik (Cousin) on: Aug 17, 2017

  • Our deepest sympathy with passing of your dear Fenny into God's glory. May you all received strength, courage and peace from this truth. "For this God is our God for ever and ever. He will be our Guide even to the end." - Posted by: Dave and Heather Bosma (Cousin) on: Aug 17, 2017
