VELVE, Inger Helen

Born July 25, 1938

(Trostheim, nee Myhra)

Heaven gained an amazingly special angel on April 11, 2015. Inger is now in a peaceful place with her parents Johan and Magnhild Myhra, now watching over her husband of 45 years Talbert; her eldest daughter Shirley Christie, husband Dave and their children Clayton (wife Courtney and Inger’s great grandchildren Payton & Lainey) and Jay (wife Pamela and great grandchildren Addisyn and Damon); son Don Trostheim, wife Lynn and children Ty and Alex; daughter Rene Koerner, husband Kris and children Kai and Cole. Inseparable sisters, Inger will always have a special bond with her surviving sister Ruth Larson (husband Len and family).

An adventurous and driven young woman, Inger came to Canada from Norway in 1957 on her own, at the age of 18. She had many events in her life that made her the strong and sweet soul that she was. She will forever hold a special place in may people’s hearts and will be remembered for her sense of style, enduring and positive spirit along with her generous love. To celebrate her life, a service will be held at the Valhalla Lutheran Church on Friday, April 17, 2015 at 2:00 pm, followed by fellowship and coffee. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the foundation of HHT Canada. (
