September 27, 1935 – November 16, 2018
Linnea Jeanine Keizer (nee Palsson) beloved wife of Jerry, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 16, 2018 in Calgary, Alberta at the age of 83 years. She will be lovingly remembered by Jerry, her husband of 63 years; daughter, Carol Woloschuk (Ken); sons, Jim (Heather) and Glen (Nora Krueger); and grandchildren, Ryan Woloschuk, Braden Woloschuk, Allison Keizer, Jennifer Keizer, David Keizer, Amy Keizer and Megan Keizer; brothers, Jerry Palsson, Courtney Palsson, Randy Palsson; sister, Linda Gemmell (Ian); as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her older brother, Roland Palsson.
Linnea was born September 27, 1935 in Nipawin, Saskatchewan to Harry and Inga Palsson. She grew up in a loving family, first living in Saskatchewan, and then in the West Kootenays in BC. She was 18 when she met Jerry, and they were soon married on September 24, 1955.
Linnea loved her family dearly, and her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She had a kind and gentle nature, and also a surprisingly dry wit. She especially enjoyed painting, gardening and sewing, and if there was music playing, she was sure to be dancing.
A Celebration of her Life was held at The Lutheran Church of the Cross, 10620 Elbow Dr SW, Calgary, Alberta on Friday, November 23, 2018.
