Daisy Belle Solsten (nee Anderson), born December 2, 1924, passed away peacefully in her Melfort, SK home on the morning of April 1, 2021 at the age of 96. As she passed, she was able to enjoy two of her favourite things: a good cup of coffee and watching the Blue Jays on tv.
Daisy is lovingly remembered by her family: Bruce; Desirae (Craig); Doug; Kelli (Robin, Alexis); Geri (Arthur, Ashtyn, Odin); Aidan; Jesse; Jamie; Shelby (Jordan, Liam, Emilia) and nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She was predeceased by her husband, Omar; her daughter Brenda; and infant daughter; her parents Alph and Augusta; sisters: Mildred, Verona, Hazel, and Joyce; and many other special people in her life.

Daisy was born north of Fairy Glen on the family farm. She was the second youngest of five daughters. She attended Teacher’s College in 1944. Her first position was teaching 36 pupils in grades 1-9 in a one room schoolhouse in Argus. In 1947 she married Omar Solsten, whom she had known all of her life. They built their homestead and farm on Bagley Road and raised their three children. They enjoyed many years running the family farm. She always had a huge garden and spent many days in Fall canning for winter. She was a hard worker and passed this on to her children. After Omar passed away in 1979, she continued to keep busy at the farm. She went on to work at Beaver Lumber in Melfort. Outside of her work, she baked the most delicious buns, bread, flatbread, and lefse. She shared these treats with neighbours, family and friends. In November 2020, she still helped roll out a batch of lefse for Christmas.

Music was so important to her. She sang and played guitar with her children. She played the organ and piano in her home and at many church services. She sang and directed the choir and was an active member of the Carrot River Valley Lutheran Church. She enjoyed many after-service cups of coffee with her friends.

She loved cards, puzzles and playing board games with family and friends. She played many games and rarely lost. Every Boxing Day she could be found at the puzzle table determined to finish the puzzle before she went home for the night.

Daisy had a beautiful soul. She was kindhearted, compassionate and caring. She kept her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren in her thoughts and prayers every day. She had a soft voice and a warm smile. She never lived with regret and was always so excited to share stories of her life with Omar and the happy times they shared together. She will be missed dearly. We are so grateful for the years of memories we shared with her.

Due to Covid, services and interment will be announced and held at a later date. Memorial donations can be made to the Carrot River Valley Lutheran Church.
