Fjola Davidson (Sigurdson), aged 84, died peacefully on February 6, 2021, in the Whitemouth Personal Care Home.
Born in Lundar to parents Jon and Margaret Sigurdson, Fjola moved to Winnipeg in the 1950s to study and to work. She married Harley Davidson in 1957, and shortly before her passing they celebrated their sixty-fourth anniversary. Harley survives her.
The couple lived in Selkirk for a few years, before settling permanently in Pinawa in 1963. Here Fjola returned to school to further her education, and worked at a local elementary school before retiring in 1988. Fjola was a passionate supporter of local sports, an avid camper, and a long-time bridge player. All who knew Fjola agree she was an incredibly kind woman, who always looked at the bright side of life despite living with progressive Multiple Sclerosis since the early 1970s. In retirement, she and Harley spent their winters in Arizona where they established a new set of friends. During the final years of her life, she collaborated with her friend Carol in the manufacture of many crochet blankets for charity. Fjola also wanted to give special thanks to Linda, her long-time caregiver at the Pinawa hospital, and to the incredible staff at the Whitemouth Personal Care Home who looked after her so well.
A beloved wife, Fjola was an excellent mother to Andrew Davidson and Susan Krebs (Greg), and a wonderful grandmother to Candace (Ian) and Kimberly Krebs (Thomas), all of whom survive her. Fjola was predeceased by her sisters Evelyn Lesage and Florence Holigroski, and her brother Bob. Her youngest brother Einar survives her, as do several nieces and nephews.
Fjola will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by all those whose lives she touched. There will be no funeral. In lieu of flowers, donation cheques may be mailed to the Pinawa Public Library, General Delivery, Pinawa MB R0E 1L0.Print This Obituary & Condolences
