Karla Joy Vinge

March 5, 1967 - November 23, 2015


It is with great sadness that the family of Karla Joy Vinge, born on March 5, 1967, announces her sudden passing on Sunday, November 22, 2015.  Karla is survived by her parents Sheila and Joel sister Karin and brother-in-law, Ron and a host of loving cousins and good friends. 

Karla completed her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Lethbridge in 1993 having a special interest in Neurosciences.  During these last years of her life, she battled Mental Illness in the form of Bipolar Disorder.  Karla endeavoured to protect family and friends from the struggles that she endured.  She is now at peace, but is enormously missed by all who knew her.  We love you and will always miss you Karla dear!

Auntie Sheila and Uncle Joel. I am soo…sorry to hear about Karla. I really wish we had more time spent together when I came for visits with Suzy. It was only 5 or 6 weeks ago we talked and she was uplifting me. I only wish I had the chance to do the same for her. Please take some comfort knowing she is at peace now and with my mom and Suzy. I will call in the next few days. Love you both and say hi to Karin. Chris

I have been deeply saddened to hear of Karla’s. Although I had not seen her for many years, I think of her often and will always remember her beauty, wisdom, keen insight, humour, kindness, compassion, and enthusiasm. I remember her talking frequently about her mom, dad, and sister. I know she loved and respected you very much.

Shelia, Joel and Karin

I am so sorry to hear of Karla’s passing. Have been remembering all the fun times we had, how Karla embraced me into our grade 12 class, when I was the nervous “new girl” who didn’t know anyone in a small town.
Had my own memorial for her last night, listening to all our old songs and like I said, remembering her kindness and sense of humour.
We won’t forget about you Karla.
She’s at peace now.
Love Tracy
