Judith Anne Koeleman

Parksville/Campbell River

June 6, 1957 to June 13, 2015

Judith’s life which was blessed with love, laughter and good friends has ended. She tackled the brain cancer with all her strength and kept a positive outlook to the end. Judith wished to thank her family, friends, neighbours, Mark Koeleman and Knox United Church for their prayers, support and compassion. Family also extends their thanks to the staff at Nanaimo Regional Hospital and Stanford Place for the care they provided her. Judith is survived by her son Mark Ravenstein (Rebecca, granddaughter Piper), brothers James Martin (Tina) and Donald Martin (Julie), sister-in-law Sarina Martin. Predeceased by her daughter Lisa Ravenstein, brother David Martin and parents Gerald and Lily Martin. By request no service or flowers. A celebration of life will be held at a future time.

 Judith’s mantra: Peace, Love and Joy.

Most of all with God, family and friends.
