Edith Alisa Laurila (nee Lahtinen) passed away peacefully

at Lakeview Lodge, Kelowna on Sunday, May 5 at the age of 91. She is lovingly remembered by her daughter Helen, granddaughter Caroline, great granddaughter Katrina,

niece Armi, brother Paavo, and many friends. Edith was predeceased by her husband Otto and nine siblings.

Edith was born in Jämsä, Finland and emigrated in 1950

to Toronto where she lived most of her life.

Edith was a hard-working woman who never stopped

moving, doing everything she possibly could for her family every minute of every day. She enjoyed trips to the cottage, swimming, playing cards, dancing, reading, renovating,

music and politics. She had a generous heart and a good sense of humour.

A private service was held on Wednesday, May 8, followed by cremation. Our deepest gratitude to all our friends for their kind messages and support.
