I am really saddened to hear of Edna’s passing. I knew her from when she came to the Native Seniors Centre in Edmonton. She always had a smile and we had lots of laughs together. Myself and other members really missed not seeing her and I know we will all miss her even more now. R.I.P. Edna Sincerely, Flo Hoffman

My sincerest condolences to my friend Marilyn, and to all of Edna’s family members. My heart aches for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. God is a friend of the broken-hearted and will grieve with you. Edna is as precious to Him as she is to you, and He is keeping her safe and happy until you meet again.

From: June Coles
Relation: extended family

We were very sad to hear of Edna’s death but so glad that she became a part of our family through Eric & Kisik. Our family enjoyed playing cards so Edna fit right in. Her quiet dignity and sense of humor was enjoyed by all who met her at our family functions.
We missed her when she left Edmonton so will surely miss her but have many fond memories of the time she spent with us.
Thank you Edna for enriching our lives.
June & Shelley
(Kisik’s Grandma & Aunt)
