Juel Nergaard 1922 — 2015

Juel Nergaard

January 29, 1922 – September 17, 2015

Olaf “Juel” Nergaard of Kamloops, passed away on September 17, 2015 at 93 years of age.
He is survived by his children, Connie Bergeron of Victoria, Brenda (Blair) Fraser of Kamloops, and Sandra (Tom) Nyeste of Kamloops; nine grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, and will be dearly missed by his brothers and sisters, Lloyd Nergaard, Roy Nergaard, Bernice Nyhus and Beatrice Nergaard.

He was predeceased by his loving wife Dorthy Nergaard, sisters Lavina, Wilma and Inez, and his proud parents John & Laura Nergaard.

Juel Nergaard was born on January 29, 1922 in Sexsmith, Alberta. He was the second of eight children born to John and Laura Nergaard. Juel was raised on a farm and throughout his life had a strong affinity for the land.
He married Dorothy Forster on September 3, 1947 and had 3 daughters, Connie, Brenda and Sandra. In 1950, they relocated to Peace River, Alberta where they resided until 1978, when they moved to Kamloops, B.C. for their retirement years.
Juel’s joys in life were golfing, curling and most of all, his nine grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. He was a devoted family man and his love and humour will be greatly missed by us all.

Special thanks to the staff at Ridgeview for their special care of our father.

A Memorial Service will take place at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 26, 2015 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel, 285 Fortune Dr., with Pastor Jane Gingrich officiating.

Donations in Jule’s memory would be greatly appreciated to The Heart and Stroke Foundation, 729 Victoria St., Kamloops BC V2C 2B5. Flowers gratefully declined.
