In Celebration of

May Kersten

November 4, 1932 -  August 29, 2021

May Kersten, 88, of Nun’s Island, passed peacefully on August 29, 2021.

May was born in Holland and immigrated to Montreal in 1965. Her life was filled with friendships from her Tennis, Outing, and Photography clubs and a wonderful community through the Unitarian Universalist Church of Montreal. May loved reading about mythology and indigenous cultures, which fueled her passion for traveling. She was fortunate enough to have traveled all over the world during her life.

May is survived by sisters, Yvonne and Anne Marie, and a brother Ferdinand.

A celebration-of-life service will be held at some point in the future.

I was sorry to hear of May's passing. We talked and played tennis, bridge and enjoyed dinners at the Monkland tennis club.

After we visited her in Montreal in 2007, we kept in touch annually by e-mail and post. Despite her blessed age, we were still shocked that she had passed away.
She was always interested and involved.
