Born June 16th , 1923 in Norway, Astri immigrated to Canada as a young girl, settling in Price Rupert with her family. Astri was raised and schooled in Prince Rupert, where she was a bookkeeper by trade.
Anyone who knew Astri knew she loved to dance, and she especially loved to jive with her younger brother Pete. Astri was also an accomplished oil painter, sketcher, and an avid curling fan.
One of her greatest joys were reminiscing of past memories, and spending time with her family, but her greatest joy was sharing in the lives of her great grandchildren. She was so proud of each and everyone of her grandchildren & great grandchildren. Astri will be dearly missed by her family & friends.
