DREVER, Edyn Grace

January 5, 2002 – Toronto, ON
September 13, 2014 – Calgary, AB

Edyn lived fully, kindly and with incredible grace. From her beginning she was wise beyond her years. Never a day passed without smiles, laughter, goofiness and celebration of some kind. Edyn’s bravery was astounding and guided us all through the most difficult of days. In her final moments we spoke to Edyn about how she made us better people, how she warmed the hearts of everyone she met. Edyn had the gift to connect with the smallest of children, the oldest of adults and everyone in between. Our family, Michael, Kristyn and Simon, will forever live with Edyn’s gentle spirit. Her love of life inspires us to live in the moment and to always be kind.

When remembering Edyn we think of “What Would Edyn Do”. In this we look for the good in every moment; we smile, strike a pose, dance like never before, turn up the music and always be grateful.

Edyn is survived by her best friend and brother, Simon, her loving parents, Michael and Kristyn; grandparents Michael and Isabel, Midge and Paul; her aunts, uncles & families Ronnie, Meredith, Lily & Charlie; Mark, Jill & Ruth; Nicholas, Gimena, Eva & Blas; Kelly, Mark, Emma, Alexandra & Isabel; Peter, Nathan & Cameron; Sharon; and all of the people Edyn touched in her life.

A Celebration of Edyn’s Life will be held on Friday, September 26, 2014 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at Shaganappi Community Hall (2516 – 14 Ave S.W. Calgary, AB). Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial donations can be made to www.campooch.org/edyn to celebrate her love for the outdoors or to www.childrenshospital.ab.ca/goto/edyndrever to help in the fight against pediatric brain tumors.
In living memory of Edyn Drever, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

  1. Edyn was a unique girl. I loved it when she came into our yard because we always had great discussions. I’m glad that I had a chance to lend her a book. I wish I had been able to spend more time with her. I think about her very fondly.
    I was very sad to hear that she had died. Our whole family is thinking about you and wishing that we could do something to help you at this time.

    Dear Krissie, Michael and Simon
    Edyn was a very special girl, from all of the great stories your TO neighbourhood friends have shared, and from the very moving obituary in today’s Globe. Although we only met her briefly (tucked up on a couch, watching a movie with the three of you…all smiles), she has touched even our family, reminding us of the importance of kindness, authenticity and appreciation for the miracle of life. Much love – Alicia & Paul

    We hold dear our memories, photos, and a special fairy that still sits on Cooper’s shelf that Edyn gave her on her 7th birthday.
    We will always smile when we think of her.

  11. Kristyn, Michael, and Simon,
    I have a clear memory of Edyn coming into my classroom at Fern P.S. for the Eco Club. With her sweet smile, and wearing her One of a Kind hat, she helped the school become a ‘Greener’ environment.
    My thoughts are with you.

    I only met Edyn a very few times but knew immediately that she was a very special person. I wanted to know more about this tender young being, present in the moment absorbed in her book or whatever she was focused on. She was delightful, just to watch, quite like a butterfly. She did truly feel to me, so full of maturity and grace, and somehow, like a little princess fairy. I say these things, not because Edyn has died, but because that is how I perceived her in life.
    I would have loved to have had more time with her and did so vicariously through Steph. I was grateful that our Stephie had more time with Edyn as they shared the depth of the internal world of thoughts and imaginings. I remember Steph saying if she could have a child like Edyn one day…

    I can only imagine the profoundness of your loss of your spirited and beautiful child. Our hearts are with you. So sorry that she died and that we can’t go on watching or hearing stories of wonder about her. Healing and Much love to you all.
