  7. In memory of Tante Toni; beloved tante to the Lindeman family of Rita, Elizabeth, Jack, Leonie, Vera, Anton, Mary, Lucia and Tom.

    We’ll always feel the intimate connection between the Lindeman, Koedijk and Teggelove families who emigrated together after the war and supported each other as they explored new horizons and forged a new future.

    Tante Toni was always a warm, kind, gentle and accepting presence whenever we visited; traits she imparted to her children.

    She lived a rich life and has left an enormous legacy which will live on forever in the memory of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and extended family.

    We love you Tante Toni – rest now in peace.
