EDITH HARRIET PARKER (published on August 08, 2009)



EDITH HARRIET PARKER (nee GREENWOOD) Edith passed away peacefully at Golden West Centennial Lodge with loved ones and staff at her side on Monday, August 3, 2009 at the age of 96 years. Left to remember her with love are her daughter, Darlene (Terry) Smith, grandsons, Brad (Marieke) and Chris, great-grandsons Parker and Gunner. Also left to mourn are sister Elsie Johnson of Victoria, nieces, nephews and their families, cousins and friends. Edith was predeceased by her loving husband Bert, their infant daughter Roberta, parents Mabel and George Greenwood and sisters Flora Martin and Winnie Krawetz. Edith was born and raised in Treherne, Manitoba and moved to Madsen, Ontario to marry Bert in 1938. They enjoyed 50 wonderful years together, 37 of those years in the gold mining community of Madsen before retiring to Winnipeg. Edith was a warm and caring person who loved her family and friends dearly. Her greatest joy was spending time with family and she loved celebrating special occasions with them. Her two grandsons and great-grandsons brought her endless joy. Everyone who knew Edith will remember her wonderful sense of humour and incredible memory. She could always be counted on to remember family history in great detail. According to Edith's wishes, no formal funeral service will be held and her ashes will be interred in Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens next to her husband Bert. A family time of remembrance will be held privately. The family would like to thank the staff at Golden West Centennial Lodge for the gentle and compassionate care that allowed Edith to leave this earth with dignity and at peace. Words cannot adequately express our gratitude, especially to the 4th floor staff, for their laughter, good cheer and understanding, which made Edith's time there so comfortable. It was very much appreciated and will never be forgotten. If so desired, donations may be made in Edith's memory to Golden West Centennial Lodge, 811 School Road, Winnipeg, MB R2Y 0S8, or a charity of your choice. WE'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU MOM
