Obituary of Connie Lynn Kvale
Connie Lynn Kvale
(January 21, 1958 - August 18, 2022)
Connie Lynn Kvale of Bawlf passed away peacefully at the Cross Cancer Institute on Thursday, August 18, 2022 at the age of 64 years young, with the Kvale 5 together by her side.
Connie was born in Camrose to Morris and Marie Throndson. The family lived in Edberg a few years before moving to the farm northeast of Camrose where she grew up. She attended Sifton School and then the Camrose Comp until she met Art, who said when he saw her, he couldn’t see anyone else. They were married in 1976 and moved to the Kvale family farm and soon after came Bharbra, Jaclyn & Halyne.
Connie was the heart of every place she worked or volunteered. She gave all of herself in countless ways for Art, her children and grandchildren, family, church community, coworkers and all of their families. She began teaching Sunday School as a teenager and never stopped. She grew in her love of sewing after making clothes for her daughters, their dolls and the love spread to countless gifts of quilts, dresses, and one-of-a-kind alterations that she became known for throughout the community. She was a bright light and her memory lives on through every stitch and every person that her life touched. She used every gift the Lord gave her to bless everyone she could.
Left to cherish her memory are her loving husband Arthur Kvale; mother Marie Throndson; daughters Bharbra (Brian) Tomaszewski of Round Hill, Jaclyn (Blain) Schacher of Bawlf, and Halyne (Andrew) Hubbard of Toronto; her grandchildren Owen and Ian Tomaszewski, Isabella, Brook and Blain Schacher, and Jason Hubbard; their fur babies Chewy, Angel and Bowser; siblings Gary, Donna and Barry; as well as many cherished nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Connie was predeceased by her father Morris Throndson and her first (four legged) grandchild, Buba.
A funeral service was held at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, August 24, 2022 at the Messiah Lutheran Church (4810 - 50th St), officiated by Rev. Kevin Nelson and Rev. Bev Swanson. The service will be live streamed and available from the link on the Messiah Lutheran Church website messiahcamrose.ca.
Heartfelt thanks to all family and friends for the love and support during this sudden loss. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Connie's memory may be made to Skudesness Cemetery Fund or the Cross Cancer Institute.
