Mrs. Bjorg Olafia "Bunny" (nee Adalsteinsdottir) Savage June 27, 1922 - December 12, 2008 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our loving mother, amma, sister and aunt. Bjorg was born June 27, 1922 in Hvallatur, Iceland and passed away on December 12, 2008 in Richmond, BC. Predeceased by her father Adalstein, mother Johanna, stepfather Jon, sister Elin, and by her beloved husband of 54 years John. She is survived by children Karin (Terry) and John, her grandsons Dylan and Derek, brothers Adalstein, Danny, Valdimar, sisters Maria and Lina, and nieces and nephews too numerous to mention in both Canada and Iceland. Bjorg came to Canada at the age of 24 for surgical nursing training, she met John and they married in 1949. Bjorg and John moved to the old Savage home on the farm, where she lived the rest of her life. Bjorg was active in the Icelandic Canadian Club and volunteered countless hours to Hofn, the Icelandic Old Folks Home as a member of Solskin. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, December 20, 2008 at 2:00 pm at the Richmond Funeral Home, 8420 Cambie Road in Richmond. A heartfelt thank you to the Palliative Care/Hospice team from the Richmond Hospital, and a profound thank you to Linda for making it possible for my mom to be in a peaceful place. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Salvation Army Rotary Hospice House, 6460 No. 4 Road, Richmond, BC V7C 3W7. "The death of a mother is the first sorrow wept without her."
