Paul Maribo Pedersen
(September 18, 1939 - August 28, 2019)
Paul was born in Camrose, Alberta on Sept 18, 1939 to Bernard and Edith Pedersen, the second of three children. He passed away at St. Mary’s Hospital on Aug 28, 2019 at the age of 79. Paul is survived by his wife of 41 years, Carol Davies-Pedersen; his furry companion Daisy; his sister Lily Rogers of Lethbridge, his brother Dennis (Donna) of Wetaskiwin; and numerous nieces, nephews and godchildren.
Paul spent most of his life in the flower business working alongside his parents and then his wife. Pedersen’s Florists was a second generation business founded in 1936. Paul and Carol retired and sold the business in 2013. Paul was an exceptionally kind and talented man who could be seen all over town.
Paul had a huge belief in giving back to his community. He spent countless hours with a number of Camrose service groups.

He was treasurer of City Centre Camrose. He also served as a District Coordinator for FTD.

You could often find him weeding and tending the rosemaling planters on Main Street.
Paul will be forever remembered by many.
