Nilda passed away on Thursday, October 3, 2019. Just like in life, she was surrounded by family and friends.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Joe; sons, Ben and Lance; step-daughters, Michelle, Marcie and Amanda (Nick); siblings, Guido and Adrianna; along with 5 grandchildren and many other friends and family.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Arno and Mary Claluna and step-son, Joel Wiebe.
Nilda grew up in B.C., lived in the Yukon Territory and traveled throughout Europe and Switzerland before finally settling in Alberta. Once there, she joined a large and loving family who will miss her dearly.
Nilda’s positive attitude was not deterred by her 2 year battle against cancer. She didn’t show how much pain she was in and she never complained. Her strength was both incredible and inspiring. Nilda is finally at peace.
