April 2, 1982 – September 22, 2012
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Kalsie Jeanne Friesen (nee MacIntyre) at the Tom Baker Cancer Center at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary.
Kalsie was born in Williams Lake, BC to Tom and Jeanie MacIntyre. In 2004 she graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelors Degree in Nursing, going on to nurse at the Foothills Hospital and Cana Construction. On August 23, 2008 she married her best friend, Mike Friesen, and in 2009 the couple welcomed the arrival of their beautiful son Rowan.
Kalsie was a kind and loving wife, mother, daughter and friend who touched many lives in her far too short life. She was a caring and talented nurse who lit up a room with her warm smile and her cheerful laugh. Kalsie will be forever loved and missed by those who had the privilege to know her. We love you too, sweetheart.
Kalsie is survived by her loving husband, Mike and their son, Rowan, her parents Tom and Jeanie MacIntyre, her brother Brett MacIntyre and grandparents Ron and Kay MacIntyre. She is also survived by large number of loving and caring aunts, uncles, cousins, and nieces and nephews as well as an extended family of in-laws that brought her into their hearts as their own.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses of the Tom Baker Cancer Center and Foothills Hospital for their incredible help during a difficult time.
In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Messages of condolence may be sent to the family at www.cherishedmemoriesfs.com Arrangements entrusted to Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.
