The Algemeen Pensioenfonds Sint Maarten (APS) surprised APS member Mrs. Dirkje van den Heuvel-de Jonge when she recieved a congratulatory bouquet of flowers and a card in honor of her 100th birthday on November 6th 2018.
“These moments are beautiful reminders of how important our responsibility to our members are. We are happy to see them enjoy their retirement, no matter where in the world, and it is an honor to be a part of that” says APS Director, Nadya Croes-van Putten.
Mrs. Dirkje van den Heuvel-de Jonge is originally a member of the APNA pension fund, which was dissolved on 10-10-10 and transitioned to become a member of the APS pension fund. She now resides in Holland and enjoys her love for plants and gardening in Terneuzen, her husband’s hometown. She met her husband in Curacao when she moved to the Netherlands Antilles in 1953. Their two daughters were born and raised on Sint Maarten until the family returned to the Netherlands in 1973. APS is honored to be able to acknowledge and welcome Mrs. Dirkje van den Heuvel-de Jonge to the elite group of centenarians around the world.
