RINGDAHL, JosephinePosted: November 3rd, 2020
July 23, 1916 – October 28, 2020
Our hearts are aching as we bid farewell to an extraordinary woman who saw the good in all. Jo was raised in Strathmore, Alberta. She and Ralph (d. 1983) were very involved in the Vauxhall community where they raised their family. Jo moved to Vancouver in 2001. Time with her family and her strong network of dear friends was very precious to her throughout her life. Jo is survived by her loving children Sally, Jo (Don), Carl (Brenda nee McNally), Rita, Beth (Ian), her adored grandchildren Eric, Amy (Andrew), Laura (Tom) and David (Sara) and five great grandchildren Claire, Connor, James, Jamie and Grace. She was predeceased by son Richard and daughter-in-law Joan.
A private family Mass will be held at Guardian Angels Parish in Vancouver on Friday, November 6, at 11am PST. The family invites you to share your condolences or watch the service via a livestream link that will be posted on https://www.raincoastfuneral.com/obituaries/josephine-catherine-ringdahl.
Jo’s ashes will be interred in the Vauxhall cemetery beside her beloved husband, Ralph, who has been waiting patiently for 37 years. Flowers are gratefully declined. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to the charity of your choice or we ask you to perform acts of kindness as Jo would.
