Edna was born in Ireby, England in 1949 and married John on August 8, 1970. Together with their 5 boys, they immigrated to the Cypress River area in March 1984 and later settled in the Carberry area. She was very fond of her many memories and friendships made over the years.
Edna was very family-oriented. Visiting her boys and their families was the highlight of her life. She was the glue that kept everyone connected.
The family has chosen to hold a private service at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.
