Our family helping your family since 1908 - Generations of Excellence


Anna E. Nord



Peacefully and surrounded by family, Anna Nord passed away on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at the age of 92 in Edmonton, Alberta.

She will be lovingly remembered by her children: Dr. Brian (Shirley) Nord of Pender Island, BC, Terry (Wanda) Nord of Niagara on the Lake, ON, Patricia (Ron) Herlick of St. Albert, AB, and Morris (Fiona) Nord of Vancouver, BC along with 8 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her husband, Knute Ralph Nord; her parents: Jorgen Jorgensen and Frederikke Jorgensen Bruce; and her step-father, Robert Wallace Bruce; her brothers: Peter and Gordon; her sisters: Ida, Agnes, Essie, Mary and Louise.

Anna was a teacher for 42 years. She taught elementary, junior and senior high school including home economics in the Peace River Country and later was the librarian at Ronald Harvey Elementary School in St. Albert where she retired in 1984. She was adored by her students and the staff and stayed in touch with many of them over the years.

Anna was the nucleus of our family. She kept family history alive through the sharing of her many photo albums and detailed accounts of her life and the lives of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Anna’s enthusiasm for life and everyone she met resulted in a busy social schedule – full of book clubs, scrabble dates, travel to visit family and numerous activities with all of her friends. She was always ready to lend a helping hand with unfailing generosity of spirit.

She will be missed.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

In Loving Memory of
Anna E. Nord
(Maiden: Jorgensen)
