VAN EGMOND, Bettina -
February 7, 1958 - May 18, 2023
Intellectual and spiritual, generous, a great friend, skilled sailor, successful Toronto realtor, phenomenal caregiver, beekeeper and restauranteur extraordinaire, our beloved, beautiful sister, Bettina Van Egmond, left our loving arms suddenly on May 18, 2023, at the age of 65.
Her accomplishments were many and her wisdom and generosity benefited all of us who had the good fortune to know her.
Tina was a kind and loving sister to Tony Van Egmond (Mary), Miriam Garnier (Jamie), Monica Thomas (Pat), Michael Van Egmond (Lori), Trix Van Egmond (Scott) and Stephen Van Egmond (Reagan).
Tina cared deeply for her fifteen nieces and nephews, Sarah, Alyson and Valerie Van Egmond; Kaitlyn, Alex and Andrea Garnier; Laura, Julie, Owen and Emily Thomas; Rianna and Brent Van Egmond; Forrest and Isaac Owen; and Linden Van Egmond.
Tina also held a special place in her heart for her dear aunts, uncles, many, many cousins in both North America and the Netherlands, and her nine great-nieces and nephews.
Tina was born in Orangeville, Ontario, on February 7, 1958. She lived in Caledon, Windsor and LaSalle, and moved to Toronto after she graduated from high school. For many of her 30-plus years career as a realtor, she was a top-selling agent.
She retired from real estate to live on her farm in Wheatley and care for our ailing, dear mother.
For the last nine years, Tina used her impressive business savvy to open Birdy's Fine Casual Dining in Bellville.
Tina was predeceased by her brother, John; her parents, Anthony and Mies; and her precious, darling border collie, Emma, who was Tina's constant companion for sixteen years.
Cremation has taken place.
