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.
