1916 – 2011

Absent from the body, present with the Lord forever.

Mom stated that she almost died as a young baby. Being the strong-willed woman she became, she was determined to live as long as she could and she did. She was a fighter to the very end and determined, as always, to do whatever it took to get herself moving. She fought the good fight. At last, she decided it was time to meet those loved ones who went on before her. And off she went as always, in her time and in her way. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Eric, and daughter, Margaret. She will be missed by her loving son, Leonard, who cared for her with great compassion, love and patience; as well as sons, Lars (Norma) and Gert; many grandchildren and great grandchildren; sister, Harriet, in Sweden, nieces and nephews, as well as the entire Swedish community in the Lower Mainland; and her very close family friends, Grace and Ray McCarthy, Mary Parsons and family.

In lieu of flowers, Mom would have wished that donations be made to CH.I.L.D. Foundation, 201, 2150 Western Parkway, UBC Campus, Vancouver, BC V6T 1V6 (
