SHARON KNELSEN, beloved wife of the late Peter Knelsen, passed away peacefully with her loving family at her side at Chinook Regional Hospital on Thursday, October 31, 2019.

Sharon will be forever cherished and deeply missed by her daughters, Karen Alexander of Lethbridge, Antonia (Darin) Lofgren of Lethbridge and Miriam (Jim) Wiebe of Guelph, ON; her grandchildren, Derek (Cassie) Alexander, Devon (Jessica) Alexander, Brittany (Daniel) Newton, Alicia (Kevin) Vanderwal, Ryan Lofgren, Brittany Klein, Stephanie Lofgren, Jordan Wiebe, Julia Marinescu, Megan Wiebe and Nate Pringle; and her precious great- grandbabies, Kessiah, Mckayla, Emily, Bennett, Levi, Brynlee and Amelia. Sharon was blessed to have a large family and is survived by numerous extended relatives, too numerous to mention.

Sharon was predeceased by her sister, Suzanne Larson, and her parents, Lowell & Hazel Otten.

Sharon loved the Lord with all her heart and her highest priority was being a Godly example of love to everyone. Sharon had an unconditional love for all and her spirit brightened anyone’s day. Every single person that came into her life felt her loveā€”and were most likely given many dishcloths and scrubbies. She always said there was healing stitched into everything she made.

Sharon was so proud of her family and made sure to let everyone know. She was joyful, compassionate, kind and beautiful in life and in death. We will love you forever Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma, Sister and Friend.

A Funeral Service will be held at PARK MEADOWS BAPTIST CHURCH, 2011 – 15 Avenue North, Lethbridge, AB on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at 1:00 P.M. with Pastor Graham Bretherick officiating.
