Hester Pretorius

November 15, 1970 - April 23, 2016

Hester Pretorius was a lovely wife, caring mother and a wonderful friend. She was truly an amazing person with an infectious smile, playful nature and a great sense of humour.


On April 23, 2016 she was taken away too soon from everyone who loved her. Although she is physically no longer with us, she has touched our lives, made the world a better place for everyone who knew her, and left us with wonderful everlasting memories.


Ilze & Surene, her beautiful daughters, live on knowing that Hester will always be their guiding light and remain in their hearts. Fred, her loving husband, will carry on knowing Hester, his soul mate, with whom he shared the last 26 years, will always be part of him.


A celebration of Hester’s life will be held on May 15, 2016 starting at 1pm till 3 pm at the Golden Age Society, 4th Avenue, Whitehorse.

    Fred, Ilze & Surene,
    I can’t imagine the sorrow you must feel. I met Hester on my last trip to Whitehorse and what a delightful woman! Our sincere condolences, we are thinking of you.

    Dear Fred, Ilze, and Surene: What we remember most about dear Hester was her kindness, which showed in her words, and very much in her smile – like she had a smile behind her smile. We will continue to send our healing prayers your way and we hope you will all be especially kind to yourselves in the coming months. We hope you will feel a small measure of comfort knowing others truly do care about you, and about Hester. Sincerely , Mark & Barb Whitehorse Yukon
