Merna Irene Knudson was born October 10, 1933, at Eden Manitoba to Harold and Viola Knudson. She passed away August 4, 2022, at the North Island Hospital, Courtenay, British Columbia.
Merna finished her schooling in Neepawa, Manitoba, and became a telephone operator until following the call of the gospel in 1956.
In her early teens Merna committed her life to God. Some time later she heard the call to the work of the gospel, and dedicated her remaining years to the preaching of the gospel. This commitment took her to Hong Kong in 1962, where she spent nearly 20 years.
Later she spent a number of years in Sweden and Finland, as well as time in Canada, continuing with the same work of spreading the gospel message.
In 2007 she returned to Canada with failing health, and since has been residing first in Saskatchewan and later in British Columbia.
Merna was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Orville Knudson and Alvin Knudson, and her sisters Orla Stutt and Leona Wilson. She is survived by her brother, Eldon Knudson, sisters Arlene MacDonald, Leila Cassie and Linnea Abrams, and sister-in-law Ruth Knudson.
The family has greatly appreciated the care and love shown by all who stood by in Merna’s last days, including the staff at the hospital, where she received very good care.
