Aug 20, 1929 – Dec 15, 2016
Edith (Edie) passed peacefully on December 15th, 2016 at the age of 87. She leaves to cherish her memory her devoted husband of 68 years Art, daughter Janice (Garry) Schellenberg, grandsons Kevin, Kyle (Michele), great grandchildren Javan, Yana, Atira, sister Lorraine White and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Sidney and Katie Switzer, brother Arthur Switzer, sisters Irene Switzer and Kathleen Shesterniak.
Edith worked for Revenue Canada until her retirement and then lived in Pinawa MB for 20 years. There she served as councilor for two terms, achieving her goal of transforming the cemetery to its present state. She loved to feed the deer, foxes and birds. Edith was a talented quilter, lovingly creating baby quilts for family and friends.
At Edith’s request there will be no service, instead we can cherish her with fond memories and love. Thank you to the wonderful staff at Park Manor Personal Care Home for their loving care and support. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to: The Park Manor PCH Building Fund, 301 Redonda St, Wpg MB R2C 1L7, (204) 222-3251.Print This Obituary & Condolences
