JOHANSEN, Kirsten “Kis” Marie

March 20, 1927 – Nordby, Denmark
August 10, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Kirsten, beloved wife, mother and friend, left us on August 10, 2018.
While we grieve her passing at the age of 91, we also celebrate a life well lived that touched so many people. We are so grateful to have had her in our lives. She is survived by her husband of 71 years, Harry, and her children Inge, Henrik (Sandra), and Mike (Dorothy and granddaughter, Jamie).

Kirsten and Harry’s home was a regular neighbourhood gathering place, with all welcome for games and coffee. She became the neighbourhood grandmother for many children over the years.

She was a long-time member of the Danish Canadian Club. She and Harry hosted many Danish visitors; their home was opened to family, friends, and strangers ranging from youth band members to Salvation Army volunteers.

She loved cross-stitching and knitting. Her amazing projects have filled the house, and many more were given away. She regularly knitted for a local neonatal unit, contributing small hand-knit outfits for newborns. Relaxing with crosswords and puzzles was also a favourite pastime.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at a future date.

Condolences may be forwarded through In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your favourite charity. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Agape Hospice for their care in her final days.

In living memory of Kis Johansen a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, CALGARY, AB, T2E 2V6, Telephone: 403-243-8200.
