Obituary

Peacefully, at the home of her daughter, Linda on Saturday, May 30th, 2020, Edna Coleman in her 100th year. Predeceased by her beloved husband Harvey. She will be deeply missed by her children Brian (Joan), Brenda Sirkia (Martti) and Linda. Devoted grandmother of Peter (Lynn), Lisa, Mark (Laura), Tim, Becky and blessed with nine great grandchildren. A private family graveside service has taken place with a celebration of life to follow at a later date. If you wish, donations in Edna’s memory can be made to Brantford General Hospital.

Edna’s childhood years were spent on the Eadie farm in Burtch. She often spoke about walking the long distance through the fields to school each day. Later, her mode of transportation was with horses into Brantford where she attended Brantford Collegiate Institute.

Edna eventually moved to Brantford where she worked several jobs over the years. In time, Edna was swept off her feet during a tag foxtrot at a local dance.

Edna and Harvey were married on June 14, 1941. Harvey was Edna’s dance partner for 60 years. Edna enjoyed many years of hard work on the family farm while being an active member of Salt Springs United Church. Her Blossom Avenue family brought her so much happiness. Her delicious baking was enjoyed by all. Saturday night dance parties with friends was something she always looked forward to. Especially, dressing in fine party gowns. Eventually, Edna and Harvey became a family of five with the addition of Brian, Brenda and Linda. Life on the farm was busy but Edna always made time for family and friends.

Edna and Harvey retired to Mt. Pleasant in 1972. Edna widened her circle of friends in this community and cherished times spent at Mt. Pleasant United Church gatherings.

Edna was so very proud of her grandchildren. She looked forward to family gatherings at Dunrovin where she could enjoy their laughter and smiles.

Edna and Harvey moved to Brantford in 2001. The addition of nine great grandchildren always filled her with so much joy.

Edna’s gentle way and infectious smile have left an imprint on everyone she touched. Heaven just got an angel.

Special thanks to Dr.Khanna for her compassionate care of Mom.

The family would like to express a heartfelt thank you to family members and friends for your acts of kindness towards our very special Mom.
