So wonderful to see our Eritsland family connecting here!
I am Iris (von Tettenborn) Nast, second child of Alma (Eritsland) von Tettenborn, who was Lars and Anna Marie Eritsland's second-youngest daughter.I have lived in the Victoria, British Columbia, area (on Vancouver Island) since 1971.Prior to that we lived in Michigan, North Dakota, Utah, Alberta, British Columbia, and Illinois.I was married in 1956 to Rudy Nast, a Lutheran minister, who is now deceased.We have 10 children (7 daughters, 3 sons), who live in Minneapolis, Ottawa, Prince Rupert (on BC's northern coast), Vancouver, and Victoria.The 5 oldest are married and I have been blessed with 19 grandchildren.
I retired four years ago (after working in the agricultural department of the provincial government for many years) and moved to a small community just outside of Victoria. Sooke (rhymes with "nuke") is the most southwestern settlement in Canada, lying just off the Pacific Ocean.
I can be reached at: Mailing address: 24-2190 Drennan Street, Sooke, British Columbia V0S 1N0 Phone: 250-642-7974 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking forward to seeing lots of our extended family members at the next (hopefully, soon!) Eritsland reunion.
