RAIHALA, Hilja Amanda (nee Haapakoski) - With sad hearts, we announce the passing of our cherished mother, Hilja Raihala, on December 16, 2008. Surrounded by her loving family, Hilja died peacefully in her 96th year at the Finlandia Nursing Home in Sudbury ON. Born May 27, 1912 in Finland, Hilja was predeceased by her husband of 70 years Jack (Jaska) in 2006, also by one granddaughter. She will be profoundly missed by 5 daughters Leila Makela (Mauno - predeceased), Marja-terttu Meri MacLeod (Gregory), Kaija Gasteiger (Will), Helena Lemberger (Frank), Liisa Picard (Raymond), 11 beloved grandchildren and 6 great- grandchildren, many nieces and nephews in Finland, Sweden, Canada, USA. Hilja, an energetic multi-talented woman of extraordinary faith, courage, strength and creative skills, had a positive outlook and wonderful sense of humour which permeated all aspects of her life. At our mother's request, a private family memorial will be held to honour her life. Many thanks to Dr. Bakker and the staff at Finlandia for their compassionate care and support. If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Finlandia Nursing Home or the charity of your choice. Arrangements entrusted to the JACKSON AND BARNARD FUNERAL HOME, 233 Larch St., Sudbury.
