Wiepkje "Wies" Hendrika Baars Danckaerts, 85, of Newnan, GA passed away on Thursday, (January 10, 2013) at the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute. Mrs. Baars was born in Jakarta, Indonesia Dec. 9, 1927. During the second World War, she and her family survived four years in a Japanese prisoner of war camp before moving to the Netherlands, where she met her future husband. In December of 1963, she and her family immigrated to the United States, setting down roots in Rye, NY. She and her husband later moved to South Windsor in 1999 and then Newnan, GA in May of 2012. The most important thing in her life was family, which was celebrated annually with a vacation at a lake house on Dark Bay Point in Lake George. Although she led a frugal life and always had her coupons on hand, she was extremely generous to a large number of charities. Even her family did not realize how many organizations she supported until the stack of calendars arrived each year. She is survived by her husband, Edward Baars; children, Carla, Dirk, and Robert; and grandchildren, Andrea, Kristen, Brian, and Connor.
