Dirkje “Dittie” Jaring, 89, formerly of Addison


ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland, Canada — Dirkje “Dittie” Jaring passed away peacefully on Feb. 8, 2022 after a long battle with cancer in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

She was born in Blokker, Netherlands, to Willem and Niesje Van Polen. In December 1954 she married the love of her life and best friend, Cornelis Jaring, who predeceased her in death in 2006. She is also predeceased by her brother Willem and granddaughter Morgan.

Mom loved being around people, sharing a laugh and having gatherings around the dinner table. Friend or stranger, you were always welcome to come have a cup of coffee or share a meal.

Dittie was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She is survived by her children Cornelis Jaring (Edna), Nel Jaring, Willem Jaring (Lisa), Eric Jaring (Susan) and Marielle Carew (Barry). She is also survived by 15 grandchildren: Katie, Keesy, Fleur, Nathan, Jennifer, Sharon, Mitch, Reece, Rachel, Camryn, Greg Adam, Mikayla, Emily and Owen; and 13 great-grandchildren. Also left to mourn her are her sister Mieke Boeder and her brother Hans Van Polen (Elisebeth) in the Netherlands, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

As per her wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of her life is planned for May 2022 in Vankleekhill, Ontario, Canada. As expressions of sympathy, donations in Dittie’s memory may be made to your local cancer society.

Doe maar rustig, want de tijd draagt je door alles.
