EHNES, Christine Rose
It is with great sadness that the family of Christine Rose Ehnes (nee Harty) announces her passing on Thursday, January 19, 2012 at the age of 93 years.
Christine will be lovingly remembered by her husband Gabriel of 72 years, and her children Gloria (Peter) Kleparchuk of Sherwood Park, Charlene Seguin of Vanderhoof, BC, and Leroy (Dina) Ehnes of Red Deer. She was a loving grandmother to seven grandchildren: Lori (Byron), Jennifer (Jamie), Nicole (Michael), Christopher, Allison, Briana, and Cameron; and great grandmother to Connor, Zachary, Taizsia, Hannah, and Meleigha.
All who knew Christine recognized her zest for life, her forward thinking, and her eternal optimism. She constantly strove to better herself, and encouraged others to do the same. Her faith and perseverance enabled her to accept whatever life dealt her and continue onward with grace.
A Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Family Catholic Church, 75 Poirier Ave, St. Albert, on Sat Feb 4, at 11:00 am. Prayers will take place at the same location on Fri Feb 3, at 8:00 pm.
