September 16, 1921 – August 1, 2020
Nina died peacefully under the gentle care of Greenwoods care aids and nurses.
She emigrated to Canada from Estonia, where she met and married her husband. They arrived to live in Fulford Harbour in 1968, where she remained living independently until she was 95 years old.
Nina was a member of the local Historical Society and Salt Spring Island Hiking Group. She was a loved member of her community. Every Christmas, she would gather all Orchard Road neighbours for a get together, preparing food and colourful abundant cookies a month or two ahead of time.
Nina loved dogs, gardening, reading and swimming at Stowell Lake. She was well known in the community for all the walking she did.
Nina is survived by 2 daughters and a grandson, the apple of her eye.
I would also like to thank the staff at Greenwoods for their loving care. Two hours before Mom died the night nurse put the phone up to each ear so that I could say goodbye from Calgary. I am so grateful for the kindness and compassion shown in Mom’s final days.
I am sorry for your loss Tina. I believe I worked with your Father some time ago now. x
