Kerstin Lucia Bobroff (née Svensson), beloved wife of Wayne Bobroff of Calgary, passed away suddenly at home on August 29, 2008 at the age of 72.

Besides her loving husband, she is survived by her children Gershon (Katherine) and Anna both of Calgary and her grandchildren Rachel and Sarah Kahane and their father Jeff. She is also survived by her sister Gunilla (Gosta) of Nykoping, Sweden; her sister Kristina (Jim) of Naples, Florida; her brother Olle (Elsbritt) of North Vancouver, BC; her brother-in-law Leonard (Sandra) of Courtenay, BC; her brother-in-law Arnold of Powell River, BC; and many nieces, nephews and cousins in Canada, Sweden, and the United States. She is predeceased by her parents Olle and Iris Svensson of Nykoping, Sweden and her father and mother-in-law, Max and Ida Bobroff of Richmond, BC.

Kerstin came to Canada in 1964 and met Wayne the following year. They married in 1968 in Vancouver, BC and recently celebrated their fortieth wedding anniversary. Kerstin was an avid gardener and well known for her delicious baking which was frequently requested by family friends for celebrations. Over the years Kerstin volunteered for many organizations including the Beth Tzedec Synagogue, Calgary Jewish Academy, Hadassah Wizo, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and contributed her considerable knitting and sewing skills to various charities, recently knitting comfort dolls that accompany medical supplies for children in third world counties. Kerstin will be remembered as loving wife and mother who enjoyed having her children close by and was endlessly devoted to her two granddaughters. She will be greatly missed by many friends for her generous spirit and sense of humour.

Funeral Services were held on Wednesday, September 3, 2008 at 1:00 p.m. at the Chevra Kadisha of Calgary, North East corner off Highway 22x and 37 Street S.W. Interment at the Beth Tzedec Memorial Park.
