Marjolein Kuijper passed away aged 47
November 27, 2010
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved niece Marjolein Kuijper, wife of Peter Bruijsten, at the age of 47, after a 8 years fierce battle with cancer.
Marjolein was very interested in our work for the NVA-Veterans and got befriended with the Carlisle Branch for the last 10 years. She and her husband Peter joined the Branch on many pilgrimages to Holland and Normandy. It became a tradition for Peter to sing in the pub for the veterans “I did it my way”.
For the last 8 years Marjolein “did it her way”. She fought against her illness with great courage. Although she knew she couldn’t win the battle, she kept her humor and made the best out of it.
Our thoughts are with Peter and her family.
She will be greatly missed.
Hans and Harm Kuijper
