Nielsen (nee Ward), Larrissa Lee

Written by ECA Review

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Larrissa Lee Nielsen (nee Ward), after fighting a nine month battle with cancer.

She passed away peacefully at 3 a.m. on Sept. 18, 2018, with family by her side at Our Lady of the Rosary Hospital in Castor, Ab. at the age of 32 years.

Larrissa was born on July 22, 1986, in Wetaskiwin, Ab. She attended school in Castor then spent time in Coronation, Ab. Rockglen, Sk. and Lacombe, Ab. before settling down in Mattawa, Ont.

She loved the outdoors and spent a lot of her spare time quadding, fishing and camping. Most of all, she loved being a mother and took great pride and joy in her four beautiful children.

Larrissa is survived by her precious children: Nicholas (9), Alaisa (8), Riley (3) and Brooklyn (2); her husband Blake Nielsen; her father Donald Johnson; mother Brenda Gregor; sisters Becara (Stepháne) Rocque, Amber (Justin) Johnson; nephews: Damyen, Zackary and Shayden Rocque; niece Hailey Johnson; other family and friends.

A celebration of Larrissa’s life will be held in the summer of 2019 and will be announced at a later date.
