February 9, 1929 – November 14, 2019
Slipped away quietly on November 14 at the age of 90 with her daughter Gail by her side. Husband Glen passed away in 2013. She is survived by Gail and her husband Scott Pickard, the son she never had, her two “darling” grandchildren Blake and Claire, her sister Leota Duncan of Penticton, and many nieces and nephews.
Born near Saskatoon, Edna grew up in the BC Interior. After moving to Vancouver she worked a variety of jobs and helped put Glen through
university before becoming a full-time homemaker when Gail was born. Edna and Glen moved to Kelowna in 1968 for his job at American Can
and later Crown Zellerbach where they lived until moving back to North Vancouver in 2013.
Mom was always in motion – working in the garden, making bread or soup, cleaning the pool, mowing the lawn, volunteering for the hospital
auxiliary and – in her later years – was a fixture on the Kelowna ladies golf scene.
No service by request. Private interment at a later date. Donations may be made to any hospital foundation or other charity of choice.
