SEYMOUR — Sieka Jantina Jimmo, 65, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2010, at Yale-New Haven Hospital. She was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on June 28, 1945, daughter of the late Jacob and Jantina (Kram) Roozendaal. She was educated in Amsterdam, receiving a certificate in child development.

Over the years, Sieka worked in many places in the area, most recently at Prudential Annuities in Shelton, as a receptionist. On Jan. 20, 1973, she married Elwin Jimmo in Woodbury.

Her many civic activities include being a member of Seymour Congregational Church, where she was also a choir member and served as a deacon of the church. Sieka was a committee member of Scouting Troop No. 3, where she worked on several fundraising events. She was an area coordinator for TOPS for many years, traveling all over the U.S. and Canada. She also loved visiting wineries and being with her family and friends.

In addition to her devoted husband, she leaves three beloved sons, Erik and his loving fiancee, Tammy, and his family, of Waterbury, Andre and his wife, Amy, of Seymour, and Pieter of Seymour; her cherished grandchildren, Caine Jimmo, Linda Jimmo and Erik Jimmo; two loving sisters, Ria and her husband, Sydney Wachtel, of Amsterdam, and Julia and her husband, Thomas Marinkovic, of France; and her extended family, Marion Jimmo of Tampa, Fla., Carolyn Cushing of Monkton, Vt., Laura and Frank Provost of Colchester, Vt., Henry Jimmo of Essex, Vt., and Leon and Dixie Lestage of Hinesburg, Vt.
