Edna will be sadly missed by her stepchildren Douglas (Krista), Robert (Nadine), and Karen (Joe), by step grandchildren Shannon, Halden, Cullen, Kevin (Erika) and Eric (Megan), by great grandchild Liam, and by sister Joyce Smith (Don predeceased). Loving aunt to David Smith (Paulette), Janice Spencer (Marty), and Joan Burgess. Great aunt to Timothy, Alissa and Ashley.

Born in Montreal, Edna moved to Toronto to pursue a career with Co-Operators Insurance. Edna and Stu enjoyed a long and happy retirement at the cottage, travelling in their RV and spending winters in Florida. She will be sadly missed at happy hour enjoying a glass of the “pink stuff” with her family and all her friends at the KOA in St. Petes. Edna was a warm, kind, caring, thoughtful person with a great sense of humor and loved to celebrate family events with her signature “Cheers, here’s to lookin’ up your old address”. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the staff at Midland Gardens for their compassionate care of Edna. In accordance with Edna’s wishes, cremation has taken place.
