Trijntje “Tina” (nee Sangers) Kazimier Zomer, 89, of Delavan, passed away of natural causes Oct. 7, 2021, at Vintage on the Ponds.

Tina was born in Friesland, The Netherlands on Oct. 27, 1931, to Germ and Anne (Sangers) Kazimier. She was united in marriage with Niek “Louis” Zomer in The Netherlands on June 29, 1960. They immigrated to the United States by boat and established their family in Wisconsin on “the farm.”

A devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, mom cherished visits with family, church friends and neighbors on the family farm. Working in her flower garden was also a joy to her. She always had tea time ready for family and visitors. She loved to go for rides after Friday night fish fry and enjoyed trips back to “the old country” to visit “familie.”

She was preceded in death by her father, Germ Kazimier and mother, Anne (Sangers) Kazimier; a sibling; and daughter-in-law Melanie Rosales Zomer.

She is survived by her loving husband of 61 years, Niek “Louis” Zomer of Delavan; her children, Annette (Kevon) Gunyon of Elkhorn, Wilma (Wesley) Zomer-Kooiman of Edgerton, Albert Zomer of Delavan, Gerald (Sandy) Zomer of Delavan, Leroy Zomer of Delavan; many loving grandchildren, great-grandchildren and step-grandchildren that lovingly called mom “Beppa” and “Grandma”; as well as two brothers, Sjouke (Fogel) Kazimier, Damwoude, Friesland, Netherlands, and Jan (Geertje) Kazimier, Buitenpost, Friesland, Netherlands; brother- and sister-in-law Henk and Sees Vaartjes of Deventer, Overijssel, Netherlands; and oom Wiemer Sangers, Netherlands. There are also many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins in The Netherlands and here in the USA, plus cousin Arlene Torrenga, and the Reyenga and VanDyken families locally.
