We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue

For years, we have posted regional death notices as a free public service, while taking on the complete cost of publishing ourselves. We can no longer do so.

Without participating Funeral Centres, Cemeteries, Monument Suppliers and Local Businesses advertising with us, we can no longer run this website at a financial deficit.

We have received dozens of emails by folks upset at the discontinuation of our daily updates, and we apologize.  We also love this site, and considered it a great service to the public by accumulating and listing all Regional Obituaries in one spot.

Also, we appreciate the privacy to not contact the families of friends for funeral arrangements who may be shortly passing, as well as, friends not having to frequently check all local funeral centre websites for service information.

Sponsors are welcome to participate and support HastingsObituaries.com by advertising (i.e., local funeral centres, cemeteries, monument suppliers or local businesses, ...we would also include your Banners and Direct Links to your websites) – please  contact us for info!

Participating Funeral Centres will be prominently Featured; within their Region, and within the Obituary Notices, including Links redirecting viewers to your Websites.

We are continuing to publish notices to DurhamObituraies.com …  and also for now, TorontoObituaries.com and HaltonObituaries.com

Thank you for visiting our website.
We plan to have the 9 other Regional Websites back on-line soon!

Vandermeer WietseVANDERMEER, Wietse Sieger - It is with great sadness that the family of Wietse Vandermeer announce his death at BGH on Thursday, June 7, 2018 at the age of one hundred and two.

Born in Holland, he was the son of the late Auke Vandermeer and Jantje Duursma.

He was predeceased by his first wife Antje (Gorter) and his seocnd wife Jantje (Vandervelde).

Also predeceased by his siblings; Hans (Mina), Fetje (Wieger), Sieger (Griet), Piet, and Oeds, leaving one surviving sister, Tilly (late Theun) of Bowmanville, and one sister in law, Kanau of Holland.

He lost his precious daughter Anne de Zoeten (late Adriaan) in November 2017.

His surviving children are Arnold (Cheryl), Hans (Cheryl), Jennie, and daughter in law Monica, all of Belleville.

Wietse brought his young family to Canada from Holland in 1954, one week before Hurricane Hazel, leaving him to wonder if he made the right choice. Many busy, happy years followed with lots of celebrations with the many friends and relatives who also emigrated to Canada.

Wietse deeply cared for this family, his adopted country, and he loved to tell war stories and talk about politics. His biggest passion was his strong faith and even on trying days he always said "Thank you, Lord, for giving me such a good day".

Wietse will be sadly missed by his grandchildren, Eric (Jen), Sean (Kathy), and David (Sarah) de Zoeten, Leanne (Ryan) Theriault, Craig (Brandi) Vandermeer, Laura (George) Zegouras, Krista Vandermeer, and Melissa (Joe) Hinterberger, and by his great grandchildren Rebecca and Madeline Buxton, Athena and Ana Zegouras, Nico and Teo Vandermeer, Amber and Bella de Zoeten, Abbie and William de Zoeten, Olivia and Scarlett de Zoeten.

He will also be missed by his stepchildren, step grandchildren, and step great grandchildren from the Vandervelde family, with whom he had many pleasant memories.

Wietse will be resting at the Weaver Family Funeral Home-West, Trenton, on Sunday, June 10, 2018 from 2-4 & 7-9 pm. Funeral Service will be held at the Ebenezer Christian Reformed Church on Monday, June 11, 2018 at 1 pm. Reception to follow at the church. Private family Interment.

Donations to the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation or Belleville General Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
