Esther Kogstad passed peacefully in her 100th year surrounded by family on November 22, 2012. Esther will be particularly missed by her children Thelma (Al), Kelly and Victor. She is also survived by seven grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her loving husband Ivar of 48 years. Esther enjoyed her daily shopping trips downtown, watching the Bluejays and following the CFL. She cherished most, the visits with her family. Whether it was looking through photos of her grandchildren, or just having her usual Sunday coffee from Tim's, Esther was always smiling, thankful and gracious. The family would like to thank all the staff at the Southwood Care Centre for their care and compassion for Esther.
