We Remember

KONING, Johannes Nicholaas “Jim”

July 3, 1936 — December 2, 2019

Jim Koning was born in the Hague on July 3, 1936 and went to be with the Lord peacefully on December 2, 2019 at the age of 82 years.  He was predeceased by his mother Elizabeth Vanderleer and stepfather John Vanderleer.

Jim came to Canada at 18 years of age and enjoyed being involved in two main careers, Crestwood Kitchens and upon closing this company, he began his real passion of photography and developing prints at Jim Koning Photography Studio.

He enjoyed many hobbies over the years and gave much of his time to volunteering at the church and with Women’s Aglow, recording, editing and duplicating their services.  Jim was proud to say he was “made in Holland,” where he has a few cousins.  He is also survived by his best friends (in this order), Schatzie, Judi Dreher and Debbie Wilkison.

There will be no service at this time. If you wish to send a condolence, post photos or share a memory, please scroll down the page to the area called “Condolences”.
