Edith (nee Wall) Comeau

Feb. 18, 1920 ~ Nov. 10, 2012

Mom died peacefully in St. Joseph’s Hospital at 8:30 AM Saturday Nov. 10, 2012 with grandson Paul MacDonald by her bed side.

Mom was born in Plum Coulee, Mb, in 1920 and joined the RCAF in WWII, stationed overseas and in Tor Bay, NFLD as a radio operator/WAC.

After the war, Mom moved to Victoria, BC and she entered an apprenticeship and successfully worked as a tailor. Mom met my dad Philippe in Victoria and they married June 19, 1948. My parents and I moved to Pachena Point Lighthouse Station where we lived until 1955. Dad got transferred to Comox, BC and my parents lived here until they both passed away.

Mom is predeceased by my father Philippe; my brother Paul Michael plus 2 brothers John and Alec; sisters Sue and Laura.

Mom is survived by me, Mariette MacDonald (Comeau); my 2 sons Paul and Alexander MacDonald; her sister-in-law Jeanne Lesoway from Victoria; Mom’s Sisters Anna Wall (98) in Vancouver and Mary Anderson (94) in Victoria; also her 2 brothers Eddy Wall in Winnipeg and Lester Wall in Saskatchewan; and brother-in-law Ed Weibe in Winnipeg; and sister-in-law Mary Wall in Manitoba.

Edith will be missed by many nieces and nephews who loved her.

Mom was an excellent cook and professional Tailor. Anyone wishing to send flowers in her memory could instead donate to the Canadian wildlife foundation.

By request there will be no service.
