She was predeceased by her husband Wilson and survived by her five children: Ann (Gary Palamar), Jeannette (Geoffrey Horsfield), Tom (Gaby Yanez), Karen (Michael Dunn), and Elise (Rob Rathier), and; her beloved grandchildren, Simon Palamar (Katharine McGowan), Max Palamar, Chris and Ian Horsfield, Zenyi Hunsberger and Atzi (Vicente Alonso).
Born and raised in Markham Ont., she lived most of her life in Waterloo and Victoria B.C., with short stints in both India and Bangladesh.
Edith was a well-travelled bird watcher with a great sense of humour and will be sadly missed.
She was a true joy.
A memorial gathering will be held at Conrad Grebel Chapel, 140 Westmount Road North, Waterloo, on February 18 at 2:30 pm. If you wish, a donation to M.C.C. could be made in Edith's memory.
