Reina passed away peacefully in St. John’s Hospital in Vanderhoof, BC, surrounded by her family. Reina was born in Baflo, the Netherlands, and immigrated to Canada at age 19 with her husband, John Rozema. After spending two years in Smithers, Reina and John moved to Vanderhoof where they raised their two children, Gerry and Joanne.

She is survived by her loving husband John, son Gerry and daughter-in-law Christina, daughter Joanne and son-in-law Matt, her grandson Jon, and many relatives in the Netherlands.
A memorial service was held for Reina on Saturday, March 10, 2012 at 1:00 PM in the First Memorial United Church in Vanderhoof with Reverend Brenda Miller officiating.
