ELKJAER
1922 – 2015
KETTY ELKJAER (nee OLSEN), of Lethbridge, beloved wife of Kaj Elkjaer of 73 years, passed away at the Fairmont Extendicare on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at the age of 92 years. Besides her loving husband Kaj, she is survived by seven children; Liss (Don M.) Kundich, Kurt (Thelma) Elkjaer, Karin (Don) Fung, Linda (Bob) Copeland, Peter (Janet) Elkjaer, Sonja Sinclair and Darren (Carie) Elkjaer, grandchildren Robert, Marty, Monique, Shane, Stacey, Martin, Kathleen, Michael (deceased), Nigel, Justin, Ryan, Kerri, Scott, Tamara, Krista, Taylor, David, Jennifer, Daniel, Cayla and many great-grandchildren and great- great-grandchildren. Our parents emigrated from Denmark in 1950. They settled in Coutts in 1953 and started a poultry farm. In 1968, they retired and moved to Lethbridge, opening their home to many needy and homeless children over the years. Our mother always believed there was always room for everyone.

“If there’s heart room, there’s house room.”

Ketty enjoyed needlepoint and knitting. She donated hundreds of booties, mittens and caps to the hospitals for newborns and mittens and scarves for the Salvation Army. Our parents were married for 73 years and our grandmother said, “It would never last.” This was a statement our mother frequently told us, especially on their anniversary. They loved spending time with family and friends and enjoyed travelling. Our mother was honoured with numerous accolades in her life, but one of the most significant was receiving the “Lady of the Year” award in 1977 by the Lethbridge Beta Sigma Phi.
Mom has requested no funeral. In lieu of a service, we request that those of you who knew Ketty, please enjoy a cup of coffee, dessert and share memories with loved ones.

Mom we love you and look forward to seeing you again.
…is Thursday good for you?
