Obituary for Wilbur Sipkema

"Lord you have been our dwelling place in all generations." Psalm 90:1

The Lord at his appointed time and in the full assurance of faith took home his child Wilbur Sipkema to be with him at the age of 80 years. Beloved husband of Maria Sipkema (nee Huizinga) for 58 years. Loving Dad of Gilbert and Debbie, Diana, and Bruce and Nikki. Much-loved Opa of Shivonne and Mark, Chanel, and Taylor, and very much-loved Great-Opa of Kaelan and Olive (Ollie). Dear brother of Louis (Nancy) Sipkema, Sid (Charlotte) Sipkema, and Bonnie (Chris) Sutherland. Dear uncle of nephews and nieces in Canada, the Netherlands and South Africa. Dear brother-in-law of Maria's siblings in the Netherlands and South Africa.

The family would like to thank Dr. VanBaardwyk and Dr. Cameron for their good care, as well as the special staff of the 5th floor at Joseph Brant Hospital for the kindness, compassion and respect they showed Wilbur and us. Special thanks to special nurse Sue and the porter that moved Wilbur to the 5th floor, who were very kind and respectful to our dear husband, dad and Opa. The family also wishes to thank the Seniors Driving Service "Driving Miss Daisy" for driving us with care to our doctors' appointments.
