Lovingly Remembered
May 12, 1921 – December 25, 2018
Helga (Grammie) of Spruce View, Alberta passed away peacefully in her home at Maple Cottage (Community Care Cottages) in Red Deer, on the evening of Christmas Day. Leaving to celebrate and delight in her longevity are her three children and their families: son Colin Kure (Gerty), daughters, Janie Loney, Michele Johannson (Ike) and six grandchildren: Kurt (Elaine) Kure, Kelsey (Tanya) Kure, Jed Loney, Luke Loney, Justin (Tannis) Johannson, Jill (Jeremy) Blocksom, and nineteen great grandchildren. Helga is survived by her two sisters in law, Isabelle (Hans) Hindbo, and Ester (Henry) Hindbo. Helga was predeceased by her husband Elmer in 2012.
Helga was born in Bramdrup, Denmark in 1921, the youngest of eight children to Tina and Jeppe Hindbo. At six years of age – Helga came with her mom and siblings: Meta, Hans, Henry, Jenny, Mijane, Eva and Jens to Pier 21 at Halifax to join up with her dad Jeppe Hindbo one year later in 1928 getting off the train in Rosedale, Alberta. In 1934 Helga’s family moved to New Hill and then in 1937 to Dickson where in that time she worked with dad on the farm helping with the sheep, cattle and breaking the land. She met her future husband Elmer in the early 40’s and got married October 31, 1943 at the Dickson Church just as her three siblings were called to war. Helga and Elmer settled and made their farm home – just 1.5 miles east of Spruce View where they resided until 1995. The decided to have Ike build them a house in Spruce View where they lived until it became apparent that support to daily living was needed for both Helga and Elmer. They moved to Sunset Manor briefly until Elmer passed away in 2012. Helga then moved to her new caring home at Maple Cottage, where she was served so beautifully in an exceptional, safe and “hygge” manner.
During Helga’s life she adored her husband and the good life they had on their grain farm. She was capable of everything from running the grain truck and combine to hunting in the fall and growing a bountiful garden and her gift of arranging flower bouquets, baking Danish pastries, cooking and serving a first class wild game meal and enjoying her sarsaparilla with Elmer before their dinner. Helga enjoyed the outdoors, golfing and curling where she won many trophies and prizes. Over the years she was also known as the local barber. She and Elmer were a team. After retiring from farming in the 70’s Helga and Elmer enjoyed travelling with his work and many great fishing trips with friends. Helga was blessed with six grandchildren and nineteen great grandchildren who spent many fun times in Grammie’s house. She was very adept in preparing many a gracious spread at a moment’s notice for all that entered their home. During her lifetime in the community, Helga quietly served in many angles of hospitality with the Bethany Lutheran Church. Her family will miss that “spark of life” – so unique to “Grammie.” A Celebration of Helga’s 97 years will be held at the King of Kings Lutheran Church in Dickson, Alberta on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. Heartland Funeral Services Ltd., Innisfail entrusted with arrangements. 403-227-0006.

Cousin Helga I entered the Hindbo household as a 3 lbs infant and stayed till I was 8yrs old.Its not a coincidental that I was spoiled rotten with the attention of the teenage girls.There I became "Lloydie " .Later when Leona & I lived in TERRACE BC,Helga visited while Elmer fished for salmon. On the occasional visit to AB we enjoyed delicious meals of fresh veggies and some exotic wild game. It was also in the Hindbo home, that I learned the perspective of GOD in life . I think Helga's life motto might well have come from Ecclesiastes 9:7-10,for she exhibited such a ZEST for life, whether on the links or exploring the Yukon. We don't know many details of Heaven,but I imagine Helga will keep on exploring with Zest. 4-6 Still, anyone selected out for life has hope, for, as they say, “A living dog is better than a dead lion.” The living at least know something, even if it’s only that they’re going to die. But the dead know nothing and get nothing. They’re a minus that no one remembers. Their loves, their hates, yes, even their dreams, are long gone. There’s not a trace of them left in the affairs of this earth. 7-10 Seize life! Eat bread with gusto, Drink wine with a robust heart. Oh yes—God takes pleasure in your pleasure! Dress festively every morning. Don’t skimp on colors and scarves. Relish life with the spouse you love Each and every day of your precarious life. Each day is God’s gift. It’s all you get in exchange For the hard work of staying alive. Make the most of each one! Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily! This is your last and only chance at it, "Lloydie " Lloyd Andersen'
