Henry Jacob Walde 1933 — 2020

Henry Jacob Walde

Henry left us to be with his Lord and Saviour a few weeks after being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 87. He passed away peacefully with the love of his life by his side.

Henry was born in Kindersley, Saskatchewan on March 25, 1933. At the age of 9, the family moved to Chilliwack. They lived on a dairy farm but to help make ends meet, he would travel to Kamloops to work at various jobs. While in Kamloops, he met Elsie, who would later on become his wife. They were married in 1958.

Henry was the most gentle, kind, soft-spoken, and loving example of Jesus to many. He will be remembered for his incredible generosity and willingness to lend a hand. His deep faith in the Lord carried him through his entire life.

Henry was an avid gardener who was happiest when tending his flowers or giving away garden produce. He enjoyed woodworking, playing games and spending time with his family. He will be remembered fondly by his loving wife Elsie; children Bonita (Gord) Wiens and Darrel Walde; grandchildren Karey Wiens, Janice (Terry) Bowdler, Aidan and Tristan Walde; and great-grandchildren Kira, Joshua and Eden Bowdler.

The Celebration of Life was held on September 29 with close family and friends.

If you would like to make a donation on his behalf, please consider the Royal Inland Hospital.

Aira Anneli Nikula 1935 — 2020

Aira Anneli Nikula

It is with great sadness that the family of Aira Nikula announce her sudden passing on September 15, 2020 at the age of 84 in Kamloops, BC. Aira was predeceased by her husband of 59 years, Pentti, in 2016. She is survived by her daughter Hannele (John) Cleaver, grandson Kieran (Bee) Nikula, her son Matti (Amanda) Nikula and grandsons Jordan and Logan. Many friends and family members will also miss Aira as she was a special lady to many and her circle of people stretched wide.

Aira was born in Finland and her and her husband, Pentti, immigrated to Canada in 1959. They settled in Coquitlam, BC where they made a home for themselves and raised their family until moving to Pinantan Lake, BC where they lived happily for 22 years before moving to Kamloops. Aira was a very creative woman and spent many hours quilting, sewing and weaving. She passed on many beautiful treasures to the people in her life and will be lovingly remembered with these. She was a tender gardener and took much pride in the beauty of her yard and flower gardens. Aira also loved to bake and spend time in the fishing boat whenever she could.

A celebration of life for Aira will be held at a later date when it is safe to have family and friends gather together to remember this special lady.
