I am so very sorry and I want to extend my condolences to Magnus and Erik.

I remember clearly heading to the Olsen home in the 70’s for a snack before road hockey - or football - or hide and seek - or going to raid gardens shh! - or just stopping in. Mrs. Olsen was ALWAYS glad to see whoever piled into the kitchen ... ❤️

I am sorry that I cannot attend as I am in Humboldt at the Bronco Memorial Golf Tournament weekend.

Gwen’s backyard 2016, she baked Magnus a birthday cake. We joked about it because Alberta was on a fire ban due to the fire in FortMac.

During a visit with Gwen in June, she listed off her 12 siblings (Joyce, Tommy,Sheila,Glenda,Shirley,Maybelle,Hilda,Myrtle,
Art,Russell,Wren,&Bart) She sure wished she could organize a family reunion, which was truly Gwen. She loved the gatherings, and had a gift for preparing enough to feed an army (got her experience in a diner and then feeding 3strapping sons, I suppose)
Turns out she gets 2 reunions, one on August 9 where she was welcomed and embraced by those who went before her. And the other on August 23, when we gather to remember her.
