Inkeri Tuovi Knox
Mrs. Inkeri “Ingrid” Tuovi Knox (nee Granholm), age 93 years, passed away peacefully in Hogarth Riverview Manor on Monday, November 29, 2021.

Inkeri was born on December 12, 1927 in Pomarkku, Finland to Martta and Niilo Granholm. She married Albert Knox in Port Arthur on December 24, 1952. Inkeri was active in the Finnish Community, especially with the Ladies of Kaleva and Canadian Suomi Foundation as well as Hilldale Lutheran Church where choir singing was always endearing to her. Even in her final years, she could still be heard singing beautiful hymns by heart.

Inkeri is lovingly remembered by her son Harry and daughter-in-law Teresa; siblings in Finland Altti, Aila, Irja, Ritva, Mirja, Hillevi, Ismo and Markku; cousins Irmeli Siivonen, Aino Niemi and Kauko Viitala in Canada as well as numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives in Canada and Finland.

She was predeceased by her husband Albert (1996); her mother Martta and father Niilo Granholm; step-mother Tyyne Granholm; infant brother Altti; sister Kerttu Landvik; brothers Onni and Osmo Granholm.

A special thank you to the staff of 2A at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre and the Transitional Care Unit at Hogarth Riverview Manor for all of the care and comfort provided to Inkeri over the last two months.
