Marriage and family

She married Harrill Bjornson (1933-) on 24 November 1958. Her husband was a former reporter and editor at the Vancouver Sun. He was born in Iceland:

The aphorism is: “Every man likes the smell of his own farts.” I first heard it long ago from Harrill Bjornson, former reporter and editor at The Sun. Harrill’s family hails from Iceland, and he maintained, I think with some pride, that the aphorism was an old Icelandic saying.

They had four children:

  • Lisa
