Tina vanNieuwenhuize will celebrate her 90th birthday at an informal reception from 1:30-3:00 pm on Saturday, February 27, 2010, at The Willows Retirement Apartments - 3115 Squalicum Parkway. Tina was born on February 23, 1920, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. She was married to Leendert vanNieuwenhuize until his death in 1988. They had four children: Lenie, Penny, Bill, and Adriana. In 1959, the family immigrated to Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1984, Tina and her husband relocated to Carpinteria, California, where Tina enjoyed the beach and her volunteer work at the Brown Bag Food Company. Tina moved to Bellingham in 2003 to be near family. She is a great-great-grandmother and attributes her longevity to good Dutch food, staying active, and riding the WTA!
