LYCAR, Colleen Lovisa


It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother and Amma, Colleen Lovisa Lycar on July 28, 2018. Colleen was known for her deep love for family, infectious laughter, kindness towards everyone and her passion for nursing. She welcomed everyone into her home and heart with open arms and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her 3 daughters and their families. Colleen’s desire to travel took her to many places around the world.

In 1979 Colleen married the love of her life after completing her nursing degree. She will be lovingly missed by her husband of 39 years George Lycar, and her 3 daughters and son in laws, Kristen and Chad Hansen, April and Kurtis McKibbin and Leanne and Jairad Burke. Amma will be everlastingly adored and loved by her grandchildren Terence, Ashton, Brooke, Mackenzie, Ryder, Tenley, Lovisa and baby Burke.

Colleen was predeceased by her parents Lovisa and Asgeir Fjeldsted and younger brother Bradley Fjeldsted. She will be missed by all including her brother Brian and Ingrid Fjeldsted and sister Brenda and Bob Simcoe and their families, along with countless friends and coworkers.

A Celebration of Colleen’s Life will be held at the Devon Community Centre, 20 Haven Ave. Devon, AB, on August 9th, 2018 at 1:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Canadian Cancer Society:

My deepest sympathy to Colleen’s family.
I had the privilege of working with Colleen for many years at Extendicare. She was a caring, vibrant contributor to the management team and always placed the well being of our residents first. She knew the value of laughter and humour and how to brighten everyone’s day.
I feel fortunate to have known Colleen and very sadden by her passing.
Heaven has gained a beautiful soul.


I had the pleasure of meeting Colleen on an accreditation survey last year (November) and really enjoyed working with her. She was a talented person with a passion for her work and her family. We shared lots of stories about family and it was clear you were her passion! My heartfelt sadness for you as you deal with your loss.
