Hilja Laukkanen

The death occurred peacefully, on January 30, 2019, after coping valiantly with the infirmities which came with age. Hilja was born February 6, 1928 in Eastern Finland and immigrated to Canada in 1954. She focused her life on her family, and her extraordinary integrity, appreciation for others and quiet kindness brightened many lives. She was predeceased by husband, Matti Laukkanen in 2002. Hilja will be sadly missed by her two sons and their families, Jouko (Suzi) and Ethan (Ruth); and relatives and friends in Finland and Canada. She was the loving Mummi to granddaughter, Seija (Steve); grandsons, Owen, Terrence (Laura), and Andrew; and two great-grandsons, Drew, Shoal, and Ethan. Special thanks to Dr. Phelan and staff at Clinton View Lodge, Hilja’s PEI home, and to family friend Charlene Cain, for their care, kindness and friendship which nurtured Hilja in her later years. A celebration of Hilja’s life will be planned later in western Canada. Arrangements entrusted to Central Queen’s Funeral Home, New Glasgow.
