Winnie passed away peacefully on July 21, 2020 at home in Nakusp B.C. with family at her side. Winnie was born on September 26, 1924 at home in Galena Bay B.C. to Ann and John Olson. Winnie grew up on a farm and from a young age she worked hard. For years Winnie and her siblings walked 3 miles to school every day and 3 miles home. When Winnie was 22 years old she married her husband Albert Ehl. Together they had 2 daughters, Darlene and Laura and 1 son, Rodney.
Winnie had a passion for the outdoors and growing up on a farm gave her life skills to navigate mountains while berry and mushroom picking. Winnie was very family-orientated and had many life-long friends in Nakusp as well as across Canada. Winnie always had a smile on her face and a positive outlook on life.
Winnie was sadly pre-deceased by her granddaughter, Annette Laarz in 1973, her husband Albert in 1994 and her son Rodney in 2000. She was also pre-deceased by her brother, Peter and her 2 sisters Hilda and Nancy.
