KELSVEN, Borgny (nee Ohme) - In her 96th year, passed away on Sunday, August 20th, 2006 at St. Catharines General Hospital. She was predeceased by her husband Roy Kelsven (1968) and her daughter Adrienne Yvonne Verde (1970). She is survived by her two sons, Robert Kelsven and his wife Shirley, Morris Kelsven and his wife Pat, and her son-in-law Ernie Verde, in whose care she was at the time of her death. She was a loving grandmother to her 15 grandchildren, Sylvia, Linda, Tony, Christine, David, Debra, Sandra, Donald, Theresa , Richard, Loretta, Catherine, Cindy, Steven and Julie; 25 great- grandchildren, Karyn, Heather, Trisha, Steven, Gregory, Patrick, Julie, Ashley, Brian, TJ, Louis, Kristy, Skylar, Sarah, Nicole, Zachery, Katherine, Matthew, Justin, Mariah, Rachel, Maddison, Carly Rose, Jeremy and Dylan, and 8 great-great- grandchildren, Aiden, Macy, Zoe, Matthew, Perpetua, Nathaniel, Sapphire and Louis. Family was important to Borgny. Photos of her children, grandchildren, great- grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren were prominently displayed in her home, keeping her dear ones close in mind. Until recently, her Christmas card exchange was quite extensive, maintaining connection with family and friends. Borgny was an important link in our Norwegian heritage. Her knowledge of family history and traditions was passed on, filtering down through four generations-making lefse is a family favourite. More than that, she passed on a tradition of hospitality as a gracious hostess, accommodating guests comfortably and providing beautifully presented and tasty meals. Her love of flowers manifested itself in gardens that displayed an artistic flair for colour and a defined sense of order. Borgny was very accomplished, having received her nursing diploma in 1930 and was respected among her colleagues for her dedication to the profession, keeping up-to-date discoveries and innovations in the medical field even after retiring. Along with her professional endeavours, Borgny's hobbies and interests included crocheting, sewing, embroidery, cake decorating, flower arranging-there wasn't much she couldn't do. Borgny's faith was a comfort to her throughout her life. She was the last surviving founding member of the Dilworth Lutheran Church in Dilworth, Minnesota. She was active in supporting all the projects of the church and constant in her love of and study of the Bible. Her funeral will be held at 1:00pm on Friday, August 25th at Resurrection Lutheran Church in St. Catharines, where she has been an active and supportive member for the past 36 years. She will be resting at HAMMOND FUNERAL HOME AND CHAPEL in Thorold and visitation will be held from 2-4 and 7- 9p.m on Thursday, August 24th. Visitation will also take place at Resurrection Lutheran Church from 11a.m until the funeral at 1p.m Friday, August 25th. Interment will take place at Sunset Gardens Cemetery, Fargo, North Dakota following a memorial service at Dilworth Lutheran Church in Dilworth, Minnesota. She will be greatly missed. 10311041
