Passed on: October 27th, 2012
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother on October 27, 2012. Ede was born in the Pelican Lake District on September 14, 1919. Ede and Milt were married on May 14, 1942 in Moose Jaw. They lived in Yorkton, where Milt was stationed in the Air Force. In 1949 they moved back to the Crosbie farm in the Pelican Lake District where they farmed until moving into Moose Jaw in 1978. While on the farm she had a beautiful garden and yard. They enjoyed many holidays with family and friends. After Milt's passing Ede enjoyed many camping trips with Marg Flack and the Moose Jaw Camping Group. She always enjoyed meeting and visiting with family and friends, never hesitating to meet new people and becoming a friend to many. Ede moved into Langdon Towers in 2004. She was blessed with wonderful friends and neighbors in the building. Ede's family meant everything to her. She was always interested in everything that was going on in their lives. She was always there to help when her family needed her. Ede will be missed by all who knew her.
