Mom passed away peacefully at the age of 101 years on April 8, 2018 at Stanford Seniors Village in Parksville.
Predeceased by husbands Helge Hagstrom in 1967, Leo Lovsund in 1972, AI Sloper in 1998 and daughter Mavis in 2013. She is survived by son Vernon, daughter Elaine (Jake), son-in- law Bob, granddaughters Karla (Kelly), Kerri (Troy), Lorinda (Palani) and Janna, 4 great grandsons and 1 great-great grandson.
Born in Bracebridge, Ontario, she was the eldest of 11 children. After marrying Helge, they moved to Port Alberni with their son in 1941. Raising the family and being a wonderful homemaker kept her busy, always finding time to support her children’s activities. As the family grew her granddaughters and great grandsons held a special place in her heart, enjoying many special family dinners and celebrations.
The family feel very blessed to have had Mom with us for so long.
Our thanks to the staff at Stanford for their wonderful care & love shown to Mom over the past 8 years and also to the staff at Nanaimo Regional General hospital.
No service at Mom’s request.
