April 29, 1940 –

July 23, 2011

With great sadness,

we announce the sudden passing of Gitte, beloved wife of Kurt, mother to Joann (Doug) Lum of North Vancouver and Brian (Heather) Nielson

of Prince George.

Mormor to 5 adoring granddaughters, big sister to Alice Richards of

Salt Spring Island and

aunt to Robin and

Damian Richards.

Gitte was famous for her Danish smorgasbord celebrations and everyone she loves has pieces of her fabulous prize-winning cross-stitch work.

She was a generous, kind and loving person with a big hug and smile for everyone.

An open house

gathering will be held

in September in

Port Coquitlam.
