KAMPS, Annie

Annie went ot be with the Lord she loved on August 6, 2009 at the age of 73. She was born in Haldersbroek, Holland on August 20, 1935. In 1948 Annie Swaan immigrated with her family to Matsqui Prairie. In 1953 she married George Kamps. Over the years she and her husband, George, lived in Port Alberni, Cloverdale, Surrey, White Rock, Bradner and lastly Aldergrove. Annie had a strong faith in the Lord and loved singing hymns. Gardening and knitting were passions or hers. Her flower gardens were exceptional. She poured out her love on her four children, eight grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Annie was lively and energetic woman who brightened the lives of many people. She will be greatly missed by family, but we who remain do not grieve as those who have no hope, for she knew the Lord. Annie is lovingly remembered by George, her husband of 56 years, daughter Elizabeth (Doug) Hillson; sons, Richard, Ron (Carla); Annette (Gary) Giesbrecht; grandchildren Sarah (Nu), Susan (Dave), Holly, Jamie (Bruce), CArly, Kristen, Adam and Ashley; great grandchildren Lesina, Julia, Mekaia, Samual, Matalena and Mercy.
