Bergstrom, Thelma May
On the morning of Sunday, January 26, 2014, with her son and daughter-in-law, Don and Linda Bergstrom by her side, Thelma May Bergstrom was granted the most peaceful of passings in Penticton, B.C. On the verge of her 94th birthday, Thelma lived an active and independent life until her last day. Born in Manitoba on February 17, 1920, Thelma was one of nine children in the family of Lillian and Andrew Conley.
Thelma was predeceased by her husband Bert in 2008 and their infant son Raymond in 1948. She will be fondly missed by her children, Don (Linda) Bergstrom of Summerland, B.C., Wendy (Gerry) Kinsella of Edmonton, Alberta, and Melanie (Bruce) Hunter of Plamondon, Alberta, her eight grandchildren, three great grandchildren, three sisters, one brother, numerous nieces and nephews, as well as her many friends.
A service will be held at the Summerland Seniors Village in Summerland, B.C. where Thelma resided, on Thursday, February 20 at 2:00 p.m. Thelma had a great love for children and donations may be made to the Stollery Children’s Hospital, or to the Canadian Cancer society in tribute to her family members who have and are courageously battling cancer.
