Wilhelmina was born April 14, 1947 to Rudolf and Anna Molenboer Ensing in Blankenham, Netherlands.  She completed her education in 1965.  She married her husband Jan Vonk in early 1966 and together they took over the family dairy farm.  She became a 3rd generation dairy farmer who passed the love of dairy to her daughter Anita.

In 2019, Wilhelmina moved back to the Netherlands to spend her retirement years near her siblings.



Wilhelmina is survived by one daughter and son-in-law Anita & Pieter Van der Laan of Frederick; three grandchildren: Eric & Melanie Van der Laan, Wilma & Adam McKay, and Liza Van der Laan; and two great grand children Ava Van der Laan and James McKay all of Frederick.  She is also survived by one brother: Jos & Anneke Ensing; four sisters Rina Van der Vegt, Betty & Arnold Vuist, Lies & Jochem Van der Akker, Lida & Albert Timmerman. Her brother and sisters are all in the Netherlands.  She is also survived by many good friends both in Frederick and in the Netherlands.
