Obituary

EDWIN EDWARD POLSON (published on April 14, 2010)



EDWIN EDWARD POLSON 1931 - 2010 After a brief illness, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ed Polson. Ed was predeceased by his parents Charles and Rose and nephew Michael. Ed's memory will be deeply cherished by his loving wife of 55 years, Marion, his twin sister Evelyn Gowriluk, his nephew Albert (Jodi), Caitlyn, Evan and Taylor, niece Andrea (John) and very special grandniece Ashlee who gave him many precious memorable moments. Ed was a very compassionate person and treated everyone with dignity and respect. We will miss his laughter, good nature, unpretentious charm, his sparking blue eyes and beautiful smile. Most of all we will miss his very presence in our lives. Ed worked for Canadian Pacific Railway for 36 years, retiring in 1986 as Weston Signal Shop Supervisor. Ed and Marion travelled extensively for a number of years which they enjoyed very much and have beautiful memories. After Ed retired they decided to build a new home in West St. Paul in 1989. They had a beautiful yard with lots of trees, which they planted, and a large garden, sharing vegetables with family and friends. Ed was a member of St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church for many years and was very involved in church work. He was a Church Trustee as well as a 3rd degree member of the Knights of Columbus. A Mass of Christian Burial to celebrate Ed's life will be held on Thursday. April 15, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church, 250 Burrin Ave. with Father Henryk Laciak officiating. Following his wishes, cremation will take place after the service with interment to follow at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens at a later date. The family would like to thank all who assisted during his illness. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3E 0V9. Glen Eden Funeral Home 338-7111
