February 15, 1939 - November 18, 2021

It is with broken hearts that the family announces the passing of our precious Mother and Amma, Steinunn Einarson.
Mom was predeceased by her husband Stefan Einarson, son-in-law Kevin Carter, daughter-in-law Carol Einarson, and great-grandson Ashton Bernhard. She will be missed by her children: Shirlee (Kris), David (Joanne), Dolores (Danny), Tanis, Danny (Tammy), Cindy (Stix); 15 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; brother Allan Sigurdson, sister Johanna Pickering, sisters-in-law, Gloria Sigurdson and Alice Bjornson.
Mom lived most of her life in Hnausa. She was an avid gardener with a green thumb. She took such pride and joy in her beautiful flowers. Mom preferred spending time outside in her gardens with the sun shining brightly down on her. Mom found beauty in all of nature, loving all creatures and animals and enjoyed many lucky pets throughout her lifetime. She kept her yard decorated and lit up all year long. Mom's beautiful flowers and yard gave her such pride and pleasure which she loved to share with her family and friends.
Music was a huge part of her life. Mom sang in the Riverton Hnausa Lutheran Church Choir for many years and was an active member as well. Mom was an excellent dancer and enjoyed dancing immensely. Mom was a devoted Elvis fan.
Amma was very popular with all her grandchildren. Amma had a fun and playful sense of humour that could make them howl with laughter as she so easily and naturally related with them. Mom had an easy-going manner with a kind and generous heart. Mom was so much fun to be with. She has left a great big hole in our hearts and will be missed forever.

Vid elskum Mommu af ollu hjarta
(We love Mom with all our hearts)

A private graveside service will be held at a later date.
