And Knelsen sqOur Sovereign God called Ang, age 38, to her heavenly home in the early hours of Saturday, November 2, 2013.  After a sudden on-set of illness, she fought courageously for 18 days in MICU at Health Sciences Centre. 

Ang was born in Morden on December 15, 1974 and grew up in Reinfeld, MB. She married the love of her life, Jake Knelsen on August 11, 1996. Ang accepted the Lord as her personal Saviour and was baptized, together with her husband, at the EMM Church on May 26, 1996. Together, they shared their greatest joy with the arrival of their precious twins Jordan and Megan.  They were a huge gift to each other! Ang LOVED her husband and children!
