(18.06.1947 – 03.12.2023): With a broken heart I have to inform you that Kor, my beautiful husband of 54 years has peacefully passed away after a long fight with cancer, surrounded by his family. Dearly loved husband of Ria, adored father and father-in-law of Miranda and Craig, and Karina and Paul. Very much loved Opa of Reuben, Austen, Emma, and Milla. He has left a void and we don’t know how we can ever fill it. Sincere thanks to Dr Jim Edwards, Dr Gary Lim, the staff of Christchurch Hospital, and St John for their compassionate care of Kor. Messages may be addressed to The Family of the late Kor Verburgh c/- P O Box 39001, Christchurch 8545. In lieu of flowers, donations to St John would be appreciated and may be made online at: www.stjohn.org.nz A Celebration of Kor’s life will be held in the Rangiora Baptist Church, 111 East Belt, Rangiora, on Thursday, December 7, at 2.00pm, private cremation thereafter.
