Dear Nancy, Mike & Families . . .

It is with saddened hearts that we are sending our sincerest sympathy to all of you on the loss of your dear and loving Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Edna. Saying goodbye is always heartbreaking when it is a person – so beautiful both inside and out and who will be missed dearly by all her loved ones. The pictures chosen demonstrate a strong bond that can never be broken. Cherish the memories that allow our loved ones to live on forever. I will forever remember Edna from the ball games from the earlier years . . . for her loving & friendly manner, her beautiful smile, and I especially admired her for the LOVE she had for her family, friends & neighbours.
You have so many family, friends, neighbours & community grieving along side you and supporting all of you with their thoughts & prayers.

Edna is now resting peacefully in the arms of the angels & may her journey to the next life be as wonderful as she was on Earth. She will be your angel in spirit – watching over you always. May God keep you in his loving arms as you grieve and celebrate Edna’s life.

So sorry for your loss – HUGS to all 🙏❤️
Clare, Brenda (Parsons) Martene & Family

Condolence from Edith and Don Lewis on February 7th, 2020 10:47 AM

To Edna’s family

We are sorry to see that Edna has passed away.
She was always a joy to be in her company in Florida, many laughs, and shopping trips.
Cherish her memories I know will.

Condolence from Charlotte & Harvey Norton on February 7th, 2020 11:35 AM

To Nancy and family,
We only knew Edna through shuffleboard in Hensall but we have so much respect for her both as a competitive player and as a warm and caring person. We had so many laughs together and great discussions about the game, politics, world problems, and, of course, her shoe collection. We will never forget her smiles and hugs and the twinkle in her eyes. We miss her so much at shuffleboard as she was such a mentor for the rest of us. We had hoped she would return refreshed and strong from her holiday in Florida but that was not to be. She loved her family so much and referred to Nancy and Mike often in her conversations.
Sincerely, Charlotte & Harvey Norton
