1923 – 2006
Passed away peacefully with her three daughters by her side.
Born within the sound of Bow Bells, London, England. Edith was predeceased by her husband of 59 years, Peter. Survived by children: Linda (Ian) Stabler, Janet Ware, Peter (Sandy) Wraight, Susan Taylor (Reg Muir); eight grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.
Edith was one of many women employed in war munitions work in London, and survived the blitz during WWII.
She enjoyed knitting, reading, crossword puzzles, and especially loved her garden. “Let’s have a cup of tea” was a familiar refrain in her home. Her motorized scooter was her lifeline to independence in the past few years, and through all weathers she would happily make her daily rounds.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Dr. Musgrave for his care and compassion. Also to the wonderful 3rd floor nursing staff at St. Joe’s, and to Maxine for always ‘being there’.
As our mother has requested, there will be no formal service. She asks that you remember her each in your own way.
