Judy Cottreau

Judy passed away peacefully at home, under the care of her loving husband, Tony.

She was born in Sudbury, ON and lived in Merritt, and Edmonton before her family settled in Mission, BC. There she met her Tony in 1990, and followed his military service to Trenton, Moose Jaw, and finally Comox.

Judy was rarely seen without a smile or her laughter. She was a caring soul at heart and always found time for volunteering whether it was hot lunches at Ecole Robb Road while her kids attended there, or her extensive efforts for the local Girl Guide units.

Judy’s interest in Genealogy led her to trace her family tree and ultimately visit the birthplace in Normandy, France of Jean Marie Cottreau, the first Cottreau to arrive in Canada in the 1790s. She loved her Corgi dogs and they gained their names from Judy’s other passion – the legend of the medieval King Arthur.

Judy was predeceased by her brother Brad. She is survived by her husband Tony Edmundson, daughter Kimberley, son Spencer, parents Raymond and Josephine Cottreau Mission, brothers Brian Mission, Tom (Kerry) Abbotsford, sisters Debbie (Clay) Mellis Abbotsford, Catherine (Murray) Desmarais Surrey, Beverley (Gary) Devison Ft McMurray and the following nieces and nephews; Andrew Cottreau Mission, William Cottreau Coquitlam, Jennifer (Jayson) Piesche, Jake Piesche Fort Langley, Natasha & Malcolm Desmarais Surrey, Erick (Kaylee) Cottreau, Ryan Devison Fort McMurray AB, Andrew Edmundson, Julie (Mike) Woods Fort Saskatchewan AB, Tristan, Dustin (Chelsey), Amourin, & Robin Edmundson of Medicine Hat AB

A celebration of Judy’s life was held on Wednesday, June 11th at Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation and Reception Centre.

Donations may be made in her name to; the Canadian Cancer Society or the Girl Guides of Canada.
