It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Verna L. Pedersen on January 16, 2021, at the age of 81.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 57 years, Bent; children, Mary, Allen (Becki), Verna Ann, Judy (Bob LaBoucane), and Susan (Rob Bischoff); her grandchildren, Chelsea (Steve Bohnsack), Benjamin (Alex), Tyler, Jarret, and Brooke; and her great grandchildren, Evelyn and Bentley. She will also be fondly remembered by cousins, Jan, Judy, David, Evelyn, Garry, Sue and Kevin. Verna was predeceased by parents, Clyde and Alma MacPherson; brother, Donald; her aunts, Ruth, Verna, and Evelyn; her uncle John David, and her cousin Marie.
Verna will be remembered as a quiet, gentle soul by all that knew her. She spent her early adult life in Lamont, working as a nursing aide. For many years of her life, she was dedicated to raising a family in Fort Saskatchewan.
A celebration of her life will be held at a later date, once Covid restrictions have eased and it is safer for travel. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
