Verna was born July 11, 1934, to Howard and Ruby Nodwell, in Biggar SK. Verna, was an incredibly unique and caring individual who touched the lives of all who knew her.
Verna was predeceased by her daughter Gloria Jean; her parents Howard and Ruby Nodwell; and her sisters Velma (Nesdoly), Lila (Sully), and Marjorie (Watson.
She leaves behind her beloved husband, Oswald Igini; her brother Norman Nodwell; her twin sister Vera McNeil; two children, Cameron Igini and Penny Gingras; five grandchildren, Colin, Kyle, Amber, Samantha and Daylene; as well as numerous nieces and nephews and their children.
We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Verna during her 84 years and to share in her life. We want to let her know that she did a great job and wish her a safe journey and reunion with those that have gone before her. We will remember her smile, her warmth, her energy, and her love for life, family and friends. She gave and loved with every ounce of her heart and soul and will remain in our lives, in our memories and in our hearts forever. We will always miss her.
Verna has requested that her remains be cremated and her ashes scattered at a private family gathering, on a later date in Biggar, SK.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made as a “Tribute – In Memory” to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
