Edna was born in Capreol, Ontario, on September 14, 1921.  She acquired her teaching education in Toronto Normal School and started a teaching career in 1944 as the only teacher in a one room schoolhouse in Markstay, teaching grades kindergarten to ten.  In 1946 Edna met and married her best friend, Harold, and subsequently interrupted her teaching career to have a family.  She returned to teaching in 1953 as a supply teacher at Wm MacMillan School.  She soon began teaching full-time at W.S. Gemmell Public School in Sudbury and, after acquiring her Bachelor of Arts degree from Laurentian University in 1972, and acquiring her “Specialist in Special Education” certificate in 1975, Edna taught special education classes in various public schools in and around the Sudbury area until her retirement in 1982.  

Upon her retirement Edna and Harold lived in Sheguiandah on Manitoulin Island where she was a very active member in the community.  Edna enjoyed hunting, fishing, tatting, quilting, knitting and many other crafts. She was a co-founder and life-member of the Current Quilts & Stitchery Guild, a member of the Women’s Institutes of Sheguiandah and Big Lake, long-time member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 177 Ladies Auxiliary in Little Current, receiving her 20 year pin in 2007, life member of the Little Current Lions Club, and a member of the Little Current Howland Centennial Museum advisory committee.   Edna was very proud to be recognized for her volunteerism by receiving a Government of Ontario volunteer award in 2000.

Edna was a very enthusiastic “people person”.  She enjoyed meeting new people as well as speaking with and spending time with family and friends.  Her interests were limitless and she was always eager to embrace new and varied endeavors.  She will be dearly missed.

She was an extremely special lady that I will always treasure. She was my teacher in Sudbury, and will recall it was her that made me become interested in reading.

My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Sasha Patti Moores Godwin
Did anyone laugh as hard as Aunt Edna, or have as much fun? I don't really think so. I carry her enthusiasm for life and needlework in my heart always. She never treated me like a kid, but spoke to me as if I was all grown up and ready to take on the world. What a lovely gift Aunt Edna was to me.

Josée Viau
Edna is a true sweetheart. She had such a joy for life and never turned away from life's challenges.

Karen, my thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. Always remember that you gave your mother joy and she was blessed to have you and was truly proud of her little Pye. She will always be in our hearts.
