CHRISTOFFERSEN, Gina Gerda
October 5, 1917 - July 14, 2012
Acclaimed artist from Denmark is survived by her brother, Leo, her children, Ricki, Brian, Neesja and Monte, her nephews, Neil, Ralph and Keith, seven nieces, eight grandchildren and one great-grandson, Ty.
Mom's favorite poem from an unknown author from 1884:
"They have tamed me,
They have taught me,
To the white man's sway I bow,
Tired with the sloth of learning,
I shall seek my wigwam now."
The lovely Memorial was held in Vancouver on July 23, 2012.
