Mom was born on September 18, 1926 in Lemvig, Denmark and passed away suddenly but peacefully on July 15, 2009 in Chilliwack, B.C. She leaves surviving Dad (Gunnar) the ‘love of her life’, her daughter Lisbeth and son-in-law Barry. In Denmark, she is survived by her younger brother and nieces and nephews.
For many years she and Dad owned and operated Shirley McAree & Star Florist in Victoria where Mom’s artistry and attention to details earned her an outstanding reputation.
She loved to travel in the van conversion with Dad, especially their regular trip to the Kimberley Accordion Festival and a long trip to Alaska. She loved to cook fabulous Danish meals, read, garden, walk, puzzle and knit. We will miss her greatly but take comfort in her words recently spoken, “I have had a good life.”
Thank you to everyone at Chilliwack General Hospital and Royal Columbian Hospital for their gentle care and wonderful support.
Memorial Service to be held at Henderson’s funeral home Thursday, July 23rd at 10:00 a.m.
