Teigen, Ole

Ole Teigen’s parents, Torval and Clara Teigen, came from Norway to Kingman in 1913 and then moved to the Valhalla District in 1915.  Besides Ole, the children were Mabel, Lloyd, and Sylvia.

Ole took over the family homestead in Valhalla, which he purchased from his father when his parents moved to Camrose, Alberta.

Ole Teigen married Rinee Rebecca Love, daughter of E.R. Love of Hythe, on July 7, 1943, at her parents’ home in Hythe.  (The wedding announcement states his name as Cpl. N. Teigen.)  They later moved to Oliver, B.C. and had two children.
