Mrs. Enni Mickelson, age 97, resident of Thunder Bay, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 28th.

Enni (Korte) was born in Ylivieska, Finland. Her mother, Emmi, travelled to Canada in 1929 to join Father Jack. The Korte's homesteaded in Jacques Township, Korte Road, and other sites around Lappe. Jack worked in the Forestry Industry while the family farmed.

Enni worked hard all of her life: the Hoito (where she met her husband Toivo), Zellers, owned and operated Arnold's Better Value Store and she managed and cleaned St. Paul's Place. Mom, Gran, Auntie. Enni, took an incredible interest in life! She pursued all that she did with enthusiasm, energy, thoroughness, determination, and a "get 'er done" attitude. She enjoyed: her family (and especially grandson Brent), gardening, travelling, the camp at Surprise Lake, Theatre and the Arts. cross country skiing, blueberry picking, knitting, sewing, and she always had an incredible craft room, stuffed to the hilt with material and wool! And those Cinnamon Buns she baked, Wow!

Enni's first and foremost love however, was St. Paul's United Church. She knew better than anyone in the Congregation to: take the lead, organize, delegate tasks, and to be "hands on" at any event : rummage sales, funeral sandwiches, dinners, bible studies.

Not long ago, St. Paul's honoured Enni with a luncheon and a lovely plaque for 50 years of Dedicated Service.

Enni is survived by son Harold (Gail), and their Calgary family, Scott Sargent (Karin) and their son Reid, Erin Sargent (here for the funeral); sister Elna Flavell and her children, Donna (Brian) and their children Alexander and Stephanie, and son David;
grandson Kyle Mickelson; special nieces, Donna (Victor), Joanie (Reid) and most Dear to her Heart, Lynda Mckeown.

Enni was predeceased by parents, Jack and Emmi Korte, husband Toivo, son Robert Mickelson, and grandson Brent Mickelson, brother-in-law, Norman Flavell.

Funeral Services will take place as follows. Interment with Family only (Lappe) followed by the Celebration of Enni's Life (Church Service) at St. Paul's United Church, Waverley Street, on Thursday, January 3rd, 2019 at 1:00 pm. Reception at the church to follow.

Heartfelt thanks to all of the doctors, nurses, and staff of Bethammi on Carrie Street! So much conscientious caring, so many kindnesses,so much really special hard work. Thanks too, to Enni's special lunch ladies. Harold and I will miss you.

I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Enni. Such a kind, dear woman. I knew her through my father, Harry Hegge, one of the instigators of St. Paul's Place, where Enni worked for some time. She hosted my sister Liz and me at least twice when we were visiting Thunder Bay. She was an early riser and eager to complete knitting projects, always keeping busy, and ready to help others. I am sorry that we lost touch these last few years but she was often in my thoughts. My sincere and deepest condolences to her family.

"O Lord, glorify her station, shelter her under the pavilion of Thy supreme mercy, cause her to enter Thy glorious paradise, and perpetuate her existence in Thine exalted rose garden, that she may plunge into the sea of light in the world of mysteries."

Fond memories of a lovely lady, who welcomed us to St. Paul’s when we were young newlyweds, new to Thunder Bay. We have moved away but still own many handmade treasures she made for us, including a beautiful sweater she knit for our first child.
Many condolences to her family and the other lives she touched. She is remembered fondly.
