Alberdinah Asma

Alberdinah Asma Born November 1, 1927, died June 12, 2022
Our mother, Dinie or Dinah (her Americanized name), went home to her Lord at the age of 94. Alberdinah was born in Drenthe, The Netherlands on November 1, 1927. She was a twin to her brother George and one of 10 children born to Lammje and Homer Vander Vecht. Orphaned by the age of 12, Dinie spent the next 12 years working in the homes of her relatives and other people, some whom she remembered treated her kindly. She relocated to Andijk, North Holland where she spent the years during WWII. She had many girlfriends, lost a beau in WWII and eventually married a persistent suitor named Cornelius Asma in 1951. They emigrated to Michigan, the USA in 1952 and there they had four children, all redheads much to her surprise. Eventually, they relocated to California in 1968 where they lived in the Bay Area for over 35 years. They moved to Florida to be closer to their children and grandchildren and they lived in their Oakland Pointe home for 10 years before they transitioned to Golden Pond Community in Winter Garden, FL which was across the street from their two sons’ homes.
