BLOM, Annie - It is with heavy hearts that Annie’s five daughters announce the passing of their dearly loved, vibrant, ever smiling and caring mom. Annie passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side at St. Mary’s General Hospital in Kitchener on Sunday, April 7, 2019. Born in Holland on October 7, 1929, Anna Maria (née Oud) Blom of Seaforth was in her 90th year. Beloved wife of the late Nicholas Blom (Aug. 30, 2008). She leaves an incredible legacy. Dearly loved mother of Elizabeth Moir of Seaforth, Willy Groothuis of Kitchener, Mary and Mark Vandyk of Cambridge, Rita Savauge and John Hackett of Cambridge, and Annette and Ron Hak of Kitchener. Her cherished 15 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren will miss her welcoming smile, hugs and kisses along with the ever present Dutch tarts, lemon cake, meatball soup and gingerale. Her kind hearted nature and loving support will be held close in their memories. Annie is also survived by her sister Cora Jeppesen, two brothers-in-law, and one sister-in-law. She will be sadly missed by her nieces and nephews who fondly referred to her as the matriarch of the family. Annie was a member of St. James Catholic Church and the CWL in Seaforth.
