Our beloved mother passed away peacefully at the age of 86 years, on February 2, 2008 at St. Jude’s Anglican Home in Vancouver, B.C.
Edith was born in Cloverdale, B.C., the second of four sisters and grew up in the Haney area at Webster’s Corner and Pitt Lake. In 1949, she and her husband, Bill, moved to Hope, B.C. where they lived for many years and raised their five children. Edith was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother who enjoyed family activities, going for walks into town, and tending her garden in the summer (especially her zinnias). She had a sweet and loving nature and is greatly remembered for her patience and kindness. In later years, Edith and Bill were active in local community events and enjoyed their involvement with the Canyon Golden Age Society.
