Obituary For Nora Holscher

It is with heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our mother Nora Holscher on October 29, 2022.

Nora was born May 8,1929 in Holstebro, Denmark. On November 12,1949 she married Kai Holscher and they immigrated to Canada from Denmark in 1950. Nora had been a retiree for many years and enjoyed spending time with her family and her friends. Nora was an inspiration to all who knew her. Her kind heart, perseverance and independence were unsurpassed by most and her energetic personality, intelligence and sense of honour were enjoyed by anyone who knew her, whether it be for a few hours or a lifetime. Nora will be missed greatly.

Left to mourn are her children; her son Kim Holscher (Cheryl), daughters, Karen Knott (Blaine), AnnaBelle Braumberger (Ron) and daughter in law Marian Holscher; grandchildren Nathan Holscher (Andrea), Taylor Holscher, Jarrid Holscher (Karen), Dillon Holscher (Pam), Keara Knott (Emmet), Marcedes Bossaer (Shane), Madison Dreger (Kenton); great grandchildren Kai and Parker Holscher, Grayson Holscher, Ainsley Holscher, Mackenna and Bridgette Bossaer, Hadden, Lincoln and Merrick Dreger and her family still residing in Denmark. She was predeceased by her loving husband Kai Holscher, sons Peter Holscher and Allan Holscher; her parents Peter and Karen Marie Trabjerg and siblings Ib Trabjerg and Hardis Andreason.

We extend a sincere Thank You to Dr. Pope whose medical care, kindness and compassion for mom was exemplary. We thank Emerald Gardens personnel for the care provided over the many years mom lived there.
