Mieke lived in Ladysmith for 40 years before moving with Allan to Victoria to be closer to family. She was an active member of her church community, a steadfast volunteer with Meals on Wheels and a leader with Girl Guides of Canada for over 30 years. For the past 15 months Mieke resided at the Oak Bay Kiwanis Pavilion in Victoria. The family would like to acknowledge the compassionate and loving care she received from the dedicated staff at the Pavilion.
