Dr. Edward Anthony Sabga OB/GYN passed peacefully on the morning of April 23, 2018 at the age of 82.  He dedicated his professional career to the people of Leamington and raised his family in that community.  He was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad in 1936.  He did his undergrad studies at what is now the University of Windsor (Assumption University at that time) and completed his medical school training at the University of Ottawa in 1962.  He trained in Obstetrics and Gynecology in Detroit and was on staff at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario before moving to Leamington in 1969.

Cherished by her daughters Martha, and her husband Patrick Laporte of Leamington, and Jeanette Lunenborg of Port Perry. Devoted Oma of Nicole Laporte. An unfailing source of treats for her furry family members Phin, Bruno, Suri and Blaze. She will be fondly remembered by her cousin and long time friend William VanWieren of London. Wilma was the youngest of four girls: Geert and Renze Dijkstra, Siem and Galen v.d. Kooi and Frouk and Willem Stuursma. Frouk, nieces and nephews continue to reside in the Netherlands. Wilma immigrated to Canada in 1960. She resided in London, Ontario and was, along with her family, a member of the Dutch Christian Reformed community, including the First Christian Reformed Church (now Talbot Street Church). She moved to Leamington in 2009. Her nurturing and compassionate nature was evident in her affection for and respectful care of individuals with disabilities, children and the elderly. Many thanks to the Administration and to all of the Staff of the Leamington Mennonite Home for your kind and attentive care and to our friends on the 1st floor of the Long Term Care Home for your love and laughter. Together we made what sometimes seemed impossible, possible. Visitation will occur in the Chapel at the Leamington Mennonite Home on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 from 9:30 to 10 a.m. Afterwards, her girls will follow their Mom east down the 401 to the A. Millard George Funeral Home in London, her hometown of almost 50 years. A second gathering of family and friends will occur there on Friday, March 9, 2018 from 1 to 3 p.m. Interment at Mount Pleasant Cemetery will follow. Gifts in Wilma’s memory can be made to the Leamington Mennonite Home or the Alzheimer Society of Ontario.
