NIELSEN, Erna Vessel (nee Ladefoged)

September 17, 1930 – August 19, 2011

Erna left this world to join her husband Jorgen on Friday, August 19, 2011 surrounded by her loving family at the age of 80 years.

Erna was born in Denmark and had many passions; knitting, needlepoint, travelling, walking, and gardening but most of all spending time with her family. She spent many years at the Mustard Seed volunteering as a hairdresser and at the Danish Canadian Club as one of the newsletter ladies.

Erna is survived by her children and their spouses Bitten (Larry) Ko, Ann (Bruno) Sacco and Peter (Valerie) Nielsen as well as her four grandchildren; Tyler, Graham, Meagan and Matthew.

We will miss your great sense of humour, Farvel Bedstemor.

A private family service will be held. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Alzheimer Society of Calgary, Suite 201, 222 – 58th Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB T2H 2S3, Telephone: (403)290-0110, www.alzheimercalgary.com. Many thanks to all the staff at Unit 74 at the Rockyview Hospital for all the support for Erna and her family in her final days.

In living memory of Erna Nielsen, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200.

    Bitten, Ann and Peter,

    I am so sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. I remember her as having a great sense of humor. She was a great neighbor and would bring a smile to my face whenever I chatted with her. May your memories of her bring you peace.
