Edna immigrated to Canada in 1981 to join her ever-growing family. The most important thing in Edna’s life was family. Apart from family, her friends became an integral part of her life and they brought her much happiness.

She was predeceased by the love of her life, her husband, Walter in 1959 and an infant son Robert in 1957; her beloved nephew Alan; her brother Robert; and her dear daughter-in-law Valerie.

Edna had a profound influence on all of us and her legacy of strength, love and determination will live on.
