LARA ARNASON February 11, 1925 - January 10, 2018 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lara Arnason, at the age of 92 years. Lara left us peacefully at the Rosewood Lodge in Stonewall, MB with her family by her side. Lara was predeceased by Steve, her loving husband of 44 years; her daughter Pat Tanchak; her parents, Bjorn and Bjorg Bjornsson; and her six siblings, Bjorn, Eric, Magnus, Gudny Eiriksson, Sigrun Cruise and Valdi. She leaves behind six children, Ron (Elizabeth), Ted (Grace), Ellen (Art) Henry, Gerry (Doris), Rick, Laurie (Grant Feuillatre predeceased); son-in-law Ralph Tanchak; and sisters-in-law, Margaret Bjornsson and Ena Cordes. She also leaves 19 grandchildren and 37 great grandchildren. Lara's greatest treasure was her family and being a Mother, Amma and Great Amma. She always had time to help and support all her family and loved it most of all when the family united in Lundar, filling the house and camping outside. Mom took great pride in her community where she actively served well into her later years. She loved curling, bingo, all games, puzzles and played cards into her last weeks. She knitted beautiful Icelandic sweaters for all her family. A celebration of Lara's life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at the Lundar Legion Hall with Shirley Russell officiating. Interment will follow in the Lundar Municipal Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Stonewall Rosewood Lodge Courtyard project, 513 - 1st Avenue N., Stonewall, MB R0C 2Z0. A big thank you to the amazing staff at the Rosewood Personal Care Home for their compassion and support. She truly lived a great life and has earned her place of rest.
