Kenneth (Jergy) Jorgenson


Ken passed away on Thursday, December 21st, 2017, at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital, Kenora Ontario. He was born to Richard and Mildred Jorgenson at Whitemouth, MB. He leaves his wife, Shirley and their four children, Dawn (Jim), Aaron (Allison), Janet (Sinclair), Dean (Joanne), seven grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.


Ken was predeceased by his parents, his in-laws and his beloved granddaughter, Brianna.


Ken was raised on the family farm at Whitemouth. He enjoyed the outdoors, many sports, especially baseball and hockey. He played ball until he was 55 years old, and loved the camaraderie of his teammates. Ken worked at the paper mill in Kenora, for over 36 years, retiring in 1992.


Ken spent a lot of time at the farm, and returned often, to help out. He found a special peace there.


Ken was a quiet man, who loved spending time with his children and grandchildren. We will miss him.
