ANNA MARTINE JORGENSEN (published on August 30, 2008)

ANNA MARTINE JORGENSEN Anna passed away peacefully at Charleswood Care Centre on August 27, 2008 at the age of 101. She was predeceased by her husband John Jorgensen in 1990. John served as Danish Consul in Winnipeg for many years. She leaves to mourn her passing, daughter Helen, and sons Jim and Wilfred. Mom was one of 13 children and is survived by brother Peter (Elsie) Larsen of Winnipeg and sister Rosa Diget of Skagen, Denmark. She leaves as her legacy eight grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Anna came to Canada in 1927 a young woman with almost no ability to speak English, but due to her personality and strong work ethics soon had many friends and happy employers. Mom loved to knit and all her children and some grandchildren probably possess Afghans lovingly made by her or large quantities of hangers beautifully wrapped in fabric. Funeral service will be at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church at 637 Buckingham Road in Charleswood at 1:00 p.m.Tuesday afternoon, September 2, 2008, Pastor Lanny Knutson presiding. Thanks to all the caregivers at Charleswood Care Centre for looking after Mom for all these years. Mom could be quite a handful when she got her mind set. In lieu of flowers, donations may be given to the charity of your choice. God didn't forget you after all Mom. NEIL BARDAL INC. 949-2200
