It is with profound sadness that the family of Edna Lockyer Woodsworth announce her passing on October 12, 2014 at the Symphony Senior, Living Evergreen facility in Calgary.

Edna was a loving Mother, Grandma, “G. G”. and Auntie. She will be greatly missed by her loving daughters Judy (Mike) and Peggy (John).

The family would like to thank all the staff at Evergreen for their dedicated care and kindness.

  1. Judi and Pegs –
    Your Mom was more than just a special lady – she was a special Auntie Edna whose laugh, love, kindness, generosity, understanding, thoughtfulness and ‘hostess with the mostess’ was always appreciated by her other girls!
    I selfishly want her to always be here with us but I’m glad that she is at peace now and with Uncle Joe.
    All my love –
    Dean

  3. Herbert Hallworth :

    I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother, Edna. Michael and his family join me in sending these condolences. Joe and Edna were the first people we knew upon our arrival in Calgary in 1966. and the best and nicest friends we ever had here. I still miss them both and only my own infirmities have prevented me from maintaining contact with Edna. We very much hope that both of you, Judy and Peggy, and your families are well, and again wish to express our sadness in your loss.
    Sincerely, Herbert Hallworth
