Sunset Villa Association

Esther Pedersen (Mortensen) passed away on December 28, 2022 in her 100th year.  She was a long-standing member of Sunset Villa going back to the late fifties. 

For decades, Esther was committed to Danish church services at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Waterloo.  This Danish church community was a source of great purpose and love for both her and Kristian.

Esther was also a founding member of Sunset Mindepark and truly loved its beauty and peacefulness.

Along with her dear friend Inge Andersen, Esther participated with the sewing girls at Sunset Villa, making many Danish Christmas stars and volunteering at Christmas Bazaars and many Grundlovsdag celebrations.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Esther at the Danish Lutheran Church in Toronto on Saturday April 8th at 1:00 p.m.  Henry Walser Funeral Home website:
