Olive was born and raised in Bryne, Norway and she came to Canada for a “holiday” around 1951. It was during this time that she met and married Henry Warkentine. She lived in Canwood until 2009 when she moved into Prince Albert to live at the Kopera Care Home. She was very proud of her Norwegian heritage and she never lost her Norwegian accent even after living in Canada for over 60 years! Olive was known for the many skills and talents that she learned while growing up in Norway. A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2012 at 2 p.m. at the Zion Lutheran Church in Canwood.
