Hoffert, Edna (Maurer)
Edna passed on to be with the angels and her beloved late husband John on June 13, 2010 at the age of 84. She will be dearly missed by her daughter Heather LeCavalier, sister Thelma, cherished granddaughters Alicia and Julia, son-in-law Jacques, and many friends and family. Edna will always be remembered for her keen intelligence and creativity. She was a voracious reader, lively storyteller, author of poems for her granddaughters, and a talented cook and seamstress. Her generosity towards those she loved was unlimited. A special thank-you to Dr. Colin Yarrow for his care of Mom over many years, to the compassionate staff at Central Okanagan Hospice House, and to Joyce and Adrian, Denise, Clarence and Margaret, and other special people who gave her much love and made her days brighter during her illness. By Edna’s request, there will be no service – a gathering will be arranged soon to remember her life. If you wish, donations may be made in her name to the Canadian Cancer Society, 1633 Pandosy Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 1P6.
