In Loving Memory Of
Cornelia “Corry” Evers
1930 ~ 2023

Corry passed away peacefully on December 28, 2023, at the Moncton Hospital. Born in the Netherlands, her parents were the late Cornelius and Adriana van Pinxteren.

She is survived by her sons: Casey (Betty), Tim (Kellie), and Mark (Kelly); daughter, Angela (Garry); grandchildren: Amanda (Ben), Willem, Brandon, Treska, and Brennan; and sister, Miep van der Pas (late Wil) of the Netherlands.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Nick; brothers: Henk and Piet; and sister, Jeanne.

Corry lived a long and beautiful life, married to the love of her life for 64 years. She was delighted with her children and grandchildren and had many dear friends. Hers was the type of soul that lit up with family and friends around her. She was a vibrant, vivacious personality, truly kind and nurturing. Her joy in life was only exceeded by her great faith in God and her love and devotion to Jesus through Mary and St. Joseph. She lived her faith and everyone who met her felt this love.

She was an Assistant Librarian in the English school system, part of the St. Pat’s Family Centre Ladies Auxiliary and a long-time member of the Catholic Women’s League.

Special thanks to the staff at Canterbury Hall and the staff and doctors of the Moncton Hospital for the great care and compassion given to Corry.

  7. I met Corry at a social gathering in the basement of Saint Bernard’s Church years ago. We used to exchange cards in the mail and meet for lunch with other friends on our birthdays. I loved the beautiful pictures of birds and butterflies that she used to send me. And I loved her Dutch accent and the precious, wise advice she always gave to me about my faith and family.
    I give you all my sincere condolences. She was more than a true gem.

  8. Corry & Nick were the best neighbours a person could have. They cared for us in so many ways as we moved into the neighbourhood, and they became great friends. Corry’s love for her God made her who she was, and that love poured out to her family & friends far and wide. Our love and sympathy to her family.
