Born in Barnston, County of Stanstead, Quebec
Edna passed away quietly at home, as was her wish. Predeceased
by her husband Clifford in 1996.
Edna will be missed by her friends Mary and Margaret,
her tea party partners, her Rosewood family, and many
others. All who knew her, embraced her quiet presence,
quick wit, mischievous twinkle, incredibly warm smile, and
her delight in giving and receiving a hug.
Thanks to Dr. Booth, Dr Masuda, and the Home Care
Nurses, for their care and guidance.
Special thanks to Joseph (Edna’s knight in shining
armour), his co-workers, and to Edna’s Team (Sabine, Kelly,
Bette, Emilie, and Jane), whom she graciously accepted to
care for her, maintaining her comfort and dignity, with love.
When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance
There is solace in its taste
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
And the world becomes a lovely thing
There’s beauty as you’ll see
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.
We will take a moment, Edna, to enjoy a cup of tea,
brewed in a Brown Betty (if possible), in a proper china cup, in
remembrance of you!
No service by request. Donations maybe made, in memory,
to the Cowichan Valley SPCA.
Edna’s remains will be sent for burial in the McKee Family
Plot in Danville, Quebec.
