Marlene Heemstra Ouwendyk Broker

Get to Know...

My favourite thing to do in Niagara is..

Touring our local wineries, be it in Niagara-on-the-Lake or along the Beamsville Bench, with friends and then getting together after for dinner.

One day I’d like to…

Take cooking lessons…preferably in Italy!

A fun fact about me is…

That I snort when I laugh.

My favourite vacation was…

Going to the Netherlands for 3 weeks with my family. My sons were 15 and 12 at the time and we had this wonderful opportunity to show them where their grandparents were born.

The accomplishment I am most proud of…

I share with Bill. This would be how our sons have grown to be amazing men, husbands and fathers to our 8 beautiful grandchildren!! xo
