Maria Cato Agerbeek

Jul 3, 1933 - Mar 19, 2012



Born in the Hague, The Netherlands, is where Maria met her husband of 57 years, Eduard. 

Maria spent her time and energy caring for others; whether it was her parents, her parent-in-laws, her 3 daughters and 6 grandchildren.

Maria passed away peacefully at her home on Monday March 19, 2012 surrounded by her family. 

Growing up an athlete herself, she loved to spend her time attending the activities or her grandchildren.  Regardless of the event (soccer, swimming, basketball, baseball, ballet, music recitals or even car washes) she was always there to encourage and support her grandchildren whom she adored.

“Oma” touched the lives of everyone she met; her strength and love will never be forgotten and will live on in her children and grandchildren.

Maria is survived by her husband, Eduard, her 3 daughters and their families:  Jo and Debbie, Ellen and Raymond and their daughters Ashley, Brittany and Carly and Jenny and Richard with their children Kennedy, Riley and Delaney.  She also leaves behind a brother, Chris Voorbij.

A special thank you is extended to the Doctors, Nurses and Support Staff at Sutter Memorial Hospital as well as Hospice for the remarkable care she received. 

You are invited to attend a viewing held Friday, March 23, 2012, from 4:00pm-8:00pm.  Funeral Services will be held the following day, Saturday March 24th beginning at 10:00am, at East Lawn Sierra Hills Memorial Park, 5757 Greenback Lane.  Interment to immediately follow.
