HUININK, Esther Lilian, age 62, of Cambridge, born in Woodstock Ontario, passed away peacefully at Cambridge Memorial Hospital early Sunday January 30, 2022. She was surrounded by her daughter and loving family members.  She is now in the arms of her Lord Jesus Christ, her forever healer; fully accepted and loved.


She was a graduate of College Avenue Secondary School and later attended Conestoga College for Art. She was a prolific artist. Her loves were art, crafts, photography, and cooking, she was a serial entrepreneur in these fields. She sold multiple pieces of her art over the years and loved to teach others her craft.  Being the second youngest of 6 siblings, she was always ready with a giggle and her smile was infectious. Her daughter Chantal was the focus of her life, and she advocated for her in every aspect of her life. She is survived by siblings Henrietta Hielema, Leida (Henry) Gerrits, Shirley (John) Vos, Henry Huinink and Jim (Shirley) Huinink. She is remembered lovingly by her many nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews.
