Jonna Hyllested

July 1, 1926 – July 3, 2018
Jonna immigrated from Denmark to Vancouver with her husband and two daughters in 1959.

The family moved to the Okanagan in 1968 where she went back to school and became a LPN .

Jonna loved looking after seniors in her nursing capacity and did so until her retirement .

Jonna rejoiced in the arrival of three beautiful grandchildren that she adored. After retirement Jonna took up bowling and joined a senior’s league. She never sat down without knitting or crochet needles creating beautiful gifts for others.

During Jonna’s last years she was unfortunately afflicted with Alzheimers and congestive heart failure which finally took her life, at age 89, with her family at her side.

Jonna’s family would like to thank all the wonderful staff at Paynter Community in the Village at Smith Creek along with all support staff there.
