June 16, 1924 – August 6, 2005
After a courageous battle with cancer, Else peacefully left her loving family and friends. We know she is at peace with family and friends who have preceded her. Else is predeceased by her husband, Niels (1985), and best companion, Nis Pederson (2002).
Else was born in Denmark and came to Canada in 1957. She enjoyed the adventure of living in B.C.’s back country while her husband built bridges throughout the province. She is survived by her son, Jens and daughter-in-law, Nancy.
Also by her beloved grandchildren, Troy (Nadia), and Christy (David), and one great-grandson,
Our thanks to all her dear friends who visited Else while she was in the hospital and at Trillium Lodge. She appreciated all your thoughtfulness. And to the staff at Trillium Lodge we are ever so grateful for your kindness, support and care, which you not only extended to Else but to the family as well.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Trillium Lodge Garden Project where they can continue to plant their wonderful garden that Else enjoyed so much.
By her request a Celebration of Else’s Life will be held at an undetermined future date. Family and friends will be notified regarding the time and place.
We will miss you forever, Mom.
