February 8, 1927 - February 14, 2024

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Alta Jean Knelsen. Mom was born in Antelope, Saskatchewan and moved to Abbotsford, BC in 1956.

Predeceased by her husband Jake and son Reg Knelsen.

She is survived by daughters Bev (Chris) Olsen, Jacquie Knelsen, sons Mark Knelsen, Rob Knelsen (Nadine), Ron Knelsen and Derek Hanneson who was like her own son, and many beloved grandchildren.

Mom was a very caring individual and will be sadly missed.

The family would like to thank the care aides and nurses at the Tabor Home in Abbotsford. She was happy and content in her last years.
