Nellie Zonneveld

Obituary of Nellie Eva Margeretha Zonneveld

Please share a memory of Nellie to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It is with great sadness that we announce that Nellie Eva Margeretha (Visser) Zonneveld died February 18, 2022. Nellie died in her home surrounded by her daughters and husband at the age of 77.  Beloved wife of Jacob Zonneveld. Loving mum of Alexandra Rose (Jeffery Brown), John Paul (Shima Blakney), Julia Elizabeth (Bob McSheffrey) and Krista Eva Maria (Sean Purcell). Dear Oma to Thomas (Chelsea), Matthew and Emma Brown, Zoe and Esme Zonneveld, Ella Purcell and Olivia McSheffrey.  


Nellie is survived by her brother Harry (Anne) and predeceased by her parents, Adrianus and Eva (Zwarteveld) Visser and her siblings Peter (Gerda), Mary (Bill Snoei) and Bas (Ria). A sincere thank you to Marjan and Bert Vrolijk, Dr. Seamus Donaghy and the palliative care nurses and caregivers. 


Nellie will be greatly missed, but always remembered for her artistic creativity from oil and water painting to sewing wedding dresses to needlepoint. However, it is the many beautiful quilts that she made for her family and friends that will continue to wrap them in her love for years and generations to come. 


A private family burial will be held in the coming days. A Celebration of Life will be planned at a later date. 


In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation can be given to the Canadian Liver Foundation (
