She was an active member of the Anglican Church and ACW. She loved spending time with family and friends, sipping on a good tea or Caesar, after all it is 5’o’clock somewhere. She was very proud of her Icelandic Heritage and enjoyed Folkorama, attending dinner theatres and traveling. She had the opportunity to travel abroad with close family friends and enjoyed it immensely. Mom was honoured to spend time with all her kids and grandkids, and they could not visit her enough. Whether it was going to the lake, enjoying life on the farm, or house hopping at Christmas, Mom loved every minute of quality family time. She enjoyed playing crib; she and Dad would have many heated games. Let’s hope there is a crib board in heaven and lots of cards! Our family would like to thank the paramedics, doctors, nurses and staff; from Home Care, Oak Park Lodge, Hospitals (Selkirk, Gimli, Arborg and Stonewall), Woodlands Adult Day Program and Rosewood Lodge for their care and support they provided Nina. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Interlake Community Foundation in a Woodlands allocation, Oak Park Lodge Inc. or Woodlands Pioneer Museum Inc. A Celebration of Life will be held, Friday, December 7th, at 2:00 p.m. at the Woodlands Community Hall with committal at St. Georges Anglican Cemetery.
