It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our Mom on Wednesday, October 28th, 2020.
Mom was predeceased by her parents Anna & Skafti, her brother Bob and her son Ed.
Mom is survived by her children; son Carl (Diane), daughter Sherri, daughter-in-law Cori, daughter-in- law Sharon (Murray), Bonnie (Edwin); grandchildren, Joel, Carson, Caitlyn, Nikolas, Sarah (Jonah), Brandon and Kelsey; her sister Dora Joan (Gary), her sister-in-law Carol; as well as nieces and nephews; Reg, Jason, Leanne, Eric, Juanita, Michele and their families, and close friends she considered family including Dinah, Ken, Jan, Joan, Joyce, Darlene, Alexis, Norma and Malvina.
Mom was born in Gimli and was raised in Sandy Hook. She worked many jobs to support us growing up, always sacrificing herself for us. She put herself through hairdressing school and worked many jobs including Robinson's Store in Gimli and Darlene's Chocolate Shop, making lifelong friends with Joyce and Darlene.
She worked many years at Husigim Home and finally with Child and Family Services as a support worker of which she recently retired. Over the years, she volunteered with numerous groups including Interlake Special Olympics- Bowling for over 25 years.
Mom loved her crafts and especially baking. She loved to bake and treat her family and friends to delicious desserts and taught her family to carry on with her traditional Icelandic baking which she loved.
Family and friends were important to Mom. She enjoyed having coffee and visiting with friends and relatives. She spent a lot of time with her very close friend Jan Isfeld.
Thank you to her friends at Vesterland Villa.
A private family gathering will be held at a later date.
