The Mother and Mother-in-law of our large clan, Dymphna Johanna Van Der Pluym DeKrom, passed away peacefully on October 13th. She was assuredly wiser than her height and punched well above her weight class in all things. She was and is beloved by all who met her as she easily and eagerly loved all those whom she met. She came to Canada at the age of 23, worked as bank teller, foiled 3 robberies and was officially recognized for her quick thinking, courage and wit. She raised 5 wonderful children and built from scratch (with her husband) one of the nicest, most comfortable homes people have ever known. She took a back-breaking job at a mushroom farm at the age of 54 when the family was having financial problems. She was a tiny lady but she did many mighty things which lastly includes creating a huge aching void in all our hearts. Love you forever Ma.
