SCHULENBERG: “Willy” Willem Frans of Beamsville, ON

Posted by on February 9, 2016

W Schulenberg obitStrong in faith and firm in the Lord’s promises, Willy was called home to the Lord at the age of 70 on Monday evening, February 8, 2016. Surrounding him was his beloved bride of 44 years, Lydia (nee Bruinsma) and loving children, Marty and Lorna, Cherie and Pete Buikema, Jamie and Michelle, and Joni and Chris Karol.

Willy will also be missed by Uncle Bill and Aunt Gerda VanDyk, as well as many other relatives and friends. With a quiet demeanour that proved to be tenacious, he walked a road with cancer for two years. By the grace of God, he set an example of patience in the face of suffering. In life he was a faithful anchor to his free-spirited wife, and supportive of his children and grandchildren, readily lending a hand in their lives and homes.
