June 15, 1930 – October 16, 2012
With great sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved mom Gerd (Haugen) Lindstrom. She passed away peacefully at home in the company of her children.
Born in Sandefjord, Norway, she came to Vancouver Island with her husband in 1953. They became residents of the Comox Valley in 1982. Gerd had a keen interest in literature and languages, and always enjoyed the challenge of a good crossword puzzle. She loved the adventure of travelling and exploring new places. We will miss her strength of spirit and her sharp sense of humour.
Gerd was predeceased by her husband Yngvar in 2006. She is survived by her children Elisabeth (Lee) and Terje (Beverly), granddaughter Amy, great-grandchildren Vida and Quinn, step-grandchildren and extended family. She will be greatly missed by friends and family members in Norway, as well as by many long-time friends and neighbors in Canada.
