Kirsten “Lette” Thompsen

(April 20, 1928 – October 8, 2009)

There is no wife more loving, no mother and grandmother more giving, or a friend truer of heart and spirit. With the deepest of sadness, we announce the passing of Kirsten ‘Lette’ Thomsen.

In 1951 Lette travelled from Randers, Denmark to Alberta to marry her true love and soulmate, Kurt Thomsen. Together they raised five incredibly talented and diverse children.

Kurt and Lette’s life-long hobbies, interests and passions drew them to the Windermere Valley where they took up full-time residence in 1978.

Lette passed away peacefully on October 8, 2009 with her husband Kurt and their five children; Ann, Glenn, Kim, June, and Lone at her side.

The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to all the staff and caregivers at the Columbia House and Invermere & District Hospital.

We welcome friends and family to join us in the celebration of Lette’s life at the Windermere community Hall on Saturday October 17th, 4:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that contributions be made to the Windermere Hospital Auxiliary to help fund the causes close to Lette’s heart.
