Wedding Wednesday ~ Joost Zijderveld & Cornelia de Rijke

Joost Zijderveld & Cornelia de Rijke
The given name Joost was common in the Zijderveld family in Holland. The Joost in this post was born on September 28, 1893, in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, as second son of Jan Zijderveld (1864-1935) and his wife Adriana van Namen (1865-1930). He was named after his grandfather - also my great-great-grandfather - Joost Zijderveld (1822-1893). He had two elder and two younger siblings: Willempje Cornelia, Anthonie, Jan and Gijsbertus.

Joost was married on October 11, 1928, in Zwijndrecht. His bride was 33-year-old Cornelia de Rijke. She was born on May 12, 1895, in Zwijndrecht. Her parents were Pietertje van Ammelrooij (1867-1950) and Marinus de Rijke (1866-1945) who was born in Oosterland in Zeeland. Joost and Cornelia had no (surviving) children.

Cornelia had been ill for a long time before she died in March 1960 in Zwijndrecht. Her burial in Zwijndrecht was on April 1. Near the end of his life, her widower Joost Zijderveld lived in a retirement home in Sprang-Capelle in Brabant where he died on August 1, 1975. Like his wife, Joost was buried in Zwijndrecht.
