EDNA ANNIE MARY SVENDSON (published on October 24, 2009)

EDNA ANNIE MARY SVENDSON (nee DUNCAN) With sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved Mom, Edna Svendson, on Wednesday, October 21, 2009. She was predeceased by her husband, George, in 1998. Remaining to cherish her memory are her daughters, Lynne Johnson and Karen Trainer (Mike); grandchildren, Kelly Pizzey (Tal), Kerry Gilmour (Jeff), Tracy Leach (Mike), and Phillip Trainer (Charmaine Andrews); seven great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Elspeth (Elsie) Westman. Edna was born on January 30, 1924 in Moosehorn, MB and moved to Winnipeg at an early age. Mom married Dad in 1946 and resided in East Kildonan for most of their married life. Mom was a wonderful seamstress and meticulously made countless dance costumes for not only her daughters but often for the entire class. Mom was also very talented when it came to knitting and crocheting, creating beautiful sweaters, blankets, and doilies. Mom and Dad spent many summers at West Hawk Lake. After Dad retired, Mom and Dad were able to spend their winters in Mercedes, Texas. Shortly after George's passing, Mom moved to an apartment in Serena Towers. There she enjoyed numerous activities and social gatherings. The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the staff at Beacon Hill Lodge and Bethania Personal Care Home for the kind and loving care they provided for Mom. Their kindness and warmth will be remembered. Interment will be at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home at a private family service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Edna's memory to The Heart and Stroke Foundation or to a charity of their choice. Glen Eden Funeral Home 338-7111
