With deep sadness yet peaceful hearts we said goodbye to Alka, beloved wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, aunt, and friend, who died unexpectedly on Remembrance Day. The end of this life means the reunion with her loving husband, the late Peter Buis (2007) and their togetherness for eternity. She is survived by her daughter Margaret, (Lisa) of Toronto, son Ron (Teresa), grandson Shawn, granddaughter Leeza of Mississauga, and in the Netherlands niece Beine and great-niece Ester, and many friends in Sarnia. The family wishes to thank the paramedics of the EMS team, the staff of Bluewater Health Hospital and Smith Funeral Home. Cremation has taken place and a private family service held. Sympathies may be expressed through donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association, PFLAG Canada or Autism Canada Foundation. Alka will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
