Edna Gertrude Fisher (nee Murray)
Passed on June 21, 2019
Peacefully on June 21, 2019 Edna Fisher passed away at Rosewood Lodge, Stonewall. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Darlene and son-in-law Lloyd Stewart, her grandchildren Michelle (Lyle), Lisa (Dennis), Murray (Kristin). “Big Grandma” as she was fondly called, will also be missed by her great-grandchildren, Kyle (Kezia), Grace and Aiden who each held a special place in her heart. She will also be remembered by close family friends, John and Ginny Tost and numerous nieces and nephews. Edna was predeceased by her husband Bill, sisters Eileen and Nora. Edna had a strong work ethic and was previously employed as a teacher’s aide, working with children with learning disabilities. Edna developed lasting friendships with several RCMP officers who boarded with her while stationed at the Stonewall Detachment. Edna loved to visit with family and friends. Her happiest times were when she was surrounded by her family. She recently celebrated her 98th birthday and was thrilled to attend her great-grandson’s wedding in January. Grandma enjoyed being a caregiver and “loved everyone”. She was always willing to lend a helping hand. She loved to laugh and tease and she enjoyed crafts, baking and playing card games. Edna aged gracefully and always ensured her makeup and hair were always perfect. The family would like to thank, Dr Pinniger, Dr Graham, staff at Stonewall Hospital, Stonewall Homecare, and Rosewood Lodge for all their support and care, as well as family and friends who visited her during her stay at Rosewood Lodge. Grandma was an important part of all of our lives. She was always there to celebrate with us on holidays and special occasions. She will be sadly missed. Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, July 4, 2019 at the Parochial Hall, 435 – 1st Ave. N., Stonewall, MB. at 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
