EDITH AMELIA ANDREW (published on April 14, 2010)

EDITH AMELIA ANDREW Edith Andrew passed away peacefully in Kelowna on April 6, 2010. She was predeceased by her two husbands, Earl and Russell, her five siblings, sons-in-law, Dick Willis and Gerry Fobel, great-grandson, Cody Zankowski. She is survived by her six children, Kenneth (Jenny) Andrew, Hollie (Roger Dennis), Annagrace (Garry Kolodinsky), Genevieve (Henry Zawasky), Esther (Melvin Zankowski), Grace Fobel. She left 16 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Edith was born to Percy and Myrtle Ashby in Brandon, MB on June 8, 1916. She married Earl Andrew in June, 1940. After several moves, the family moved to a farm in Sifton, MB. After a decade, Mom and Dad moved to The Pas, where they opened their hearts and home to well over 200 foster children during the next 14 years. After a serious heart attack at age 63, she and Earl moved to Winnipeg to be closer to family and friends. Earl passed away in 1989, and after living on her own for 12 years, in December 2002, she married Earl's widowed brother, Russell. They lived awhile in Winnipeg, then moved to Kelowna where Russell died in March, 2009. The family has lost an amazing resource with Edith's passing. Edith was a gentle, caring person who loved serving others. Her unbending faith in God helped to define her life and also assist her in times of trouble and sorrow. She was truly loved and appreciated by many. Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations can be made to Global Missions Inc., Box 934, North Battleford, SK S9A 2Z3 or to a charity of your choice. A Celebration of Edith's life will be held in Murray Hall at St. Paul's High School, 2200 Grant Ave., Winnipeg, MB on Saturday, April 17 at 1:00 p.m., with burial in the Balmoral Victoria Cemetery. MacKenzie Funeral Home, Stonewall in care of arrangements
