Sigrun Svavarsdottir Fanndal was born in Reykjavik, Iceland, on November 15, 1967, to Svavar Sigursson and Sigurborg Kolbeinsdottir. She was the second oldest child of four.
Sigrun loved everyone and welcomed everyone with open arms; she would be the first person to give the shirt off her back or help in any way possible to anyone in need. All her life she was some type of caregiver, whether it was being a stay-at-home mom for her daughters, being a personal caregiver, taking care of the elderly, an being a certified nursing assistant throughout her life; being the caregiver she was to everyone, it became just part of her personality and lifestyle, she thrived and lived her life for caring for others. On December 8th, 2011, Sigrun’s pride and joy made her way into the world, her “Granny Gold”, Arieahna M. Arnadottir, as she called her, Arieahna was definitely her light and joy in her life; she loved that girl more than life itself. Sigrun was a very stubborn (and by stubborn, we mean STUBBORN), intellectual, goofy, Viking woman.
When Sigrun wasn’t working or spending time with her family and granny gold, she could be seen knitting, watching TV, shopping, cooking, baking, watching TikTok videos, and keeping up with family and friends via Facebook.
Sigrun will be forever missed leaving behind her two daughters, Birgitta S. Arnadottir and Sigurborg Skaftadottir; and her “Granny Gold” as she called her granddaughter, Arieahna M. Arnadottir; and her “adopted” granddaughter, Sabrina Cookinham; along with many other family and friends.
