Peacefully, with her daughters by her side, Mom passed away at the Souris Health Centre on Sunday, December 27 at the age of 96.

Edmee was born (Sept. 21, 1924) and raised in the Deleau MB district. After high school, she obtained a teaching certificate at the provincial Normal School in Winnipeg. While teaching at the Wolflea one room schoolhouse, she met her future husband Harold. Married in 1944, and after several years of farming, they settled in Souris MB.
Edmee worked as a receptionist in the local dental office, and later at the Sutter Medical Clinic. She taught her daughters the art of multitasking while she supported their many activities.
Mom enjoyed gardening, cooking, golfing, and the activities at the local senior centre. Mom and Dad liked to travel and to spend winters in Weslaco, Texas.
Edmee will be remembered by family and friends as a caring, supportive, and loving person with an infectious smile. She was so proud of her family and followed the lives of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren with interest and encouragement.
Thank you to the staff of the Victoria Park Lodge, Manitoba Society of Seniors, Home Care, Dr. D. Cram, and the staff of Souris Health Centre for your dedicated and compassionate care of our Mom.
