Cornelia Veistrup

April 27, 1930 – April 12, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce that Mom passed away peacefully at home with her family at her bedside.  She is survived by husband Erik, sons Carl (Janine), Eric and daughter Karen (Dave) as well as her brother Dirk (Jo), and sisters Julia (Hans) and Annie.  She also leaves behind 4 wonderful grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.

Mom was very well read and looked at things with an open and fair mind.  She had a unique perspective and especially loved literature, art and travel.  Long lively discussions often occurred at supper with a generous meal and always at a beautifully set table.

The family requests that no flowers be sent and that there will be no service.  A memorial service will be held at a later date. Condolences may be offered online at

Please join us to share your fond memories of Corrie Sunday, May 5th, 2 pm to 4 pm at the Veistrup family home in Chemainus.
