Edna Augusta "Tookie" Zinck (nee Miles)

May 29, 1931 – November 8, 2014

Edna Augusta (Miles) Zinck (better known as Tookie) peacefully passed away with her family by her side on November 8th, 2014. She was born on May 29, 1931 in Hearst Ontario and grew up in Maniwaki, Quebec. Tookie and her husband Errol moved to BC where they spent the rest of their life with their children Ken, Chris (Shelly), Elaine (Scott) and Cathy. She was a loving Grammie to Katelin (Jeff), Stephanie (Alan), Isa (Neal) and Hobin, and Great-Grammie (GG) to Mason, Sonoma, Quinn and Yarrow.

She will also be deeply missed by her family in Eastern Canada. She will be remembered for her kind nature and sense of humour. She was a badminton player and swimmer in her day and enjoyed playing cards with her family and friends. Tookie loved to walk and chat with all the neighbors and knew every dog’s name on the block.

But mostly Tookie was happiest when she was with her family who she unselfishly dedicated her entire life to. With fond memories, laughter and tears she will be missed dearly by those who knew and loved her.

Special thanks to The Views. Private cremation arrangements.

Should friends wish, donations in her memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
