Van Schie, Cornelius Hendrikus 'Cor'

Cor passed away peacefully at Lee Manor Nursing Home in Owen Sound on Friday, June 3, 2022 at the age of 83.

Born in the Netherlands on June 30, 1938, he was a son of the late Gerardus and Gertrudes (nee Zuinder) Van Schie.

Cor was the beloved husband of more than 60 years to Elizabeth ‘Betty’ (nee Nan) Van Schie of Meaford.

He was the father of Sandra Postings (Dion) and Brian Van Schie (Julie).

Cor was the proud grandfather of Joshua Postings (Alexandra La Sala) and Jessica Tangen (Donavan).

The Catholic Church was very important to Cor and he was a very devoted parishioner. He was a proud and dedicated member of the Knights of Columbus. For many years Cor ran his own carpentry business, ‘Cor’s Renovations’; he took great pride in his work. He was always willing to lend a helping hand or offer advice to anyone in need.
