September 10, 2020
Our wonderful mother returned home September 10, 2020, there to be welcomed by her loving husband, Richard (our father), her brother, sisters, mother and father.
Born in Edmonton, Alberta November, 1927, Mom was a fireball! Coming in just under 5 feet, "Mighty Mouse" was a star on the basketball court, held Canadian records for Track and Field, and Senior Olympic metals for Lawn Bowling.
Mom's friendships and volunteer work went recognized in all the places she called home; Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Lions Bay, Mill Bay, Victoria, Maui, The Sun Cities in Arizona, and finally Brentwood Bay. Granny was our loudest supporter, our model for living bravely, gracefully and with dignity. Edith, Mom, and "Granny" to all, will always be our Tiny Hero!
With love, Drew (Debbie), Dean (Lesley), Dawn (Evan Fredrickson); grand kids: Danny, Megan, Max, Wil, and Soleil; great grand kiddies; Owen, Ben, David, Rosie, and Lily, as well as Granny's chosen family; Jim, Alison, Jaclyn and Dawn II Hara.
Donations can be made at KidSport BC, or your local Junior sports associations
