Edith D.J. Walske
July 27, 1914 – March 13, 2013
On March 13, Edith, with family by her side said she was “going home”. She was born in Percival, Saskatchewan and moved to BC in her twenties, residing in Haney, Enderby, Armstrong and Summerland, where she lived the rest of her life. She was a hard worker in her long but beautiful 98 years of life. She had great patience, understanding and was never selfish. She was always willing to give something of herself to others. She gave everything from love and friendship to a loaf of fresh baked bread or buns. Even in her last days, she would never complain, always asking about how others were doing. Her kind and soft soul will be dearly missed but always remembered by all that had the privilege of knowing and loving her. She leaves behind her loving husband Randolph, daughter Viola, grandchildren: Wayne (Brenda), Lennie, Christine (Barry), great-grandchildren: Cynthia and Drew, sister–in-law Louise (George), brother-in-laws: Alf and Elmer and many more relatives. A private memorial tea was held. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com and searching her name under stories.
