Adriana Meulensteen
Meulensteen, Adriana'Jane'; at Saugeen Valley Nursing Centre, Mount Forest on Tuesday June 5th, 2012. Adriana'Jane' (Peters) Meulensteen of Mount Forest in her 88th year. Beloved wife of the late Johannes H. Donkers (father of John Meulensteen) and the late Harry Meulensteen. Loved mother of John Meulensteen & wife Jan of Clifford, Corrine Vaine & husband Barry of Mount Forest, Herb Meulensteen & wife Anna of Listowel, Joe Meulensteen & wife Faye of Mount Forest, Martha McClung & husband Rob of Wasaga Beach, Frank Meulensteen & wife Brenda of Atwood, Wilma Farlow & husband Ben of Ayton and Paul Meulensteen & wife Peggie of Listowel. Loving grandmother to her many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will also be sadly missed by many loving relatives in Canada and Holland and close friends.

Jane was a loving, generous, hard-working and ultimately selfless woman. Jane 's utter devotion to both her family and her faith has proved to be the cornerstone of her personality and an inspiration to those she knew. Jane 's years of dedicated work supporting and helping her family grow and eventually allowed them the opportunity to own their own successful farm. As Jane grew older, her commitment to those she cared for continued to form the focus of her life. Her elder years were spent travelling with her husband and enjoying the many growing families she created. Jane believed very strongly in the virtues of hard work and sacrifice and we know she will be at peace now that she is reunited with her loved ones and God. She will be greatly missed.

Friends may call at the England Funeral Home, Mount Forest on Thursday from 2:00 to 4:00 & 7:00to 9:00p.m. A Prayer Vigil will be held on Thursday evening at 6:45p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Mary of the Purification Church on Friday June 8th at 11:00a.m. Interment at Holy Cross Cemetery. Memorial donations to Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of one 's choice would be appreciated by the family. On line condolence may be made at www.englandfuneralhome.com


Dear Meulensteen family, You're mother's passing has broken my heart like she was my own - she was a 2nd mother to me. She embraced me every other Sunday after church - made a place for me at the table where I sat with the rest of you like I belonged - all sipping our cups of bullion with crackers. If I had a sleep over, I got the same hug and the same kiss that Wilma got after saying our bedtime prayers. Those are precious moments for a child, and memories that I have forever held on to. She was a beautiful loving and caring woman whom I'm certain had this impact on many people. Her service was beautiful and the words about her touched my heart. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to connect with each of you after to express my sincere heartfelt condolences. I hope you find comfort in knowing she is at peace. Love to each you, Lucy.

To ALL of the Meulensteen family: Our condoelnces to you all with the loss of your Mother and Oma. I remember her as "Jana", the centre of the household in Pickering, Brougham and later Kenilworth. There were always lots of kids, food and laughter. It made my dad's day if he could tease or pester your mom in some way and she's always took it in stride. On our first night in Arthur your mom came with a hot meal for everyone, always time to help out, a true friend. May you all find comfort in the good memories that you shared with her.

Dear Family members, I am sorry that your dear mother has passed away from your life. Last Satutrday evening June 2nd when I dropped in for a brief visit with her, she decided to sit up on the side of her bed very much to my surprise! Unknowing to me that this was to be her last time to give me once more a gentle hug. You must feel very proud of the example your mother gave to each and every one of you. Oh how she loved you "her family". You now will follow in her footsteps, spreading her joy and love for others. I am sorry that I am going to be away this Thursday morning for a week vacation with some of my siblings. I know that God will Bless you and give you all the strenght you need. You "are" in my prayers!! Sister Dora

- I should add that your ferlwos look much more professional than mine. Mine look a little like the child made them herself, but that's probably because I wrapped the ferlwos around a pipe cleaner lol! I am really enjoying all your work Jody. x

Hi Richard! With the WordPress iPhone app you can upload your iPhone viedos to YouTube. Simply start a new blog entry, select the camera icon, select the video you want to upload from your Camera Roll and Save and Publish. You of course must have a YouTube account already setup and go into setting in WordPress and set it up to link to YouTube. Video Blogging on the run. Pretty cool huh?

Deepest sympathy to your whole family. Although it has been many years since I last saw your mother, I remember many a time sharing a lunch or dinner at your large kitchen table at the farm. Your mom could always make us laugh. I remember her always having a smile on her face. Know that you are all in our hearts and prayers during this difficult time.
