Geertrui Sophia Stok 13-11-1922 – 11-01-2012

On Wednesday the Lord took to Himself  “Truus” Stok (nee: van Meggelen). Mum had been a loving wife, mother and grandmother and faithfully loved the Lord throughout her 89 years.

Since the early 1970s she struggled with MS but it was a sign of her character that she took up this struggle resolutely and determinedly.

Mum had been through the “Great Depression”, war and then moved to a new land in the early 1950s with a young family. In all that time her life was characterised by diligence and hard work. Most of all, in everything she did, her desire was to do it in a way that honoured God.

We will miss her, but our joy is that she is now without pain and suffering in the presence of her God and King.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving 
   and his courts with praise; 
   give thanks to him and praise his name. 
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; 
   his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:4&5
