In Loving Memory ~
Tina Sturwold passed away peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Saviour on February 18, 2022. Several family members were at her side upon her passing.
Tina was born in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan in 1927. In 1931 Tina’s parents moved to Freeman River, Alberta to attempt farming. The soil wasn’t fertile and the farming experience failed.

Tragically, a year later her husband was accidentally shot in the leg and passed away a short time later. Tina was left with a five week old baby.
Two years later, she moved back to Neerlandia and married her second husband (Jake), raising four more boys and two daughters. In 1973, Jake and Tina sold the family farm and moved to Abbotsford.
Tina was a homemaker her entire adult life. She could bake, cook, and entertain with the best of them. She was the kindest, sweetest, Christian lady you’d ever meet.
