Peacefully, Edith passed into eternity to be with her Lord on January 10, 2021 at the age of 84. She will be missed by her children, Markus (Valdine), Andrea (Roland), and Helga; and grandchildren, Catherine and Jason.

The family would like to thank the staff of West Park Manor and Meadowood Manor Personal Care Home for their kind and compassionate care of our mom. The family would also like to thank Dr. Chandran Baker, Pan Am Pain Clinic and Dr. Oliver Bereznay for their care.

Cremation has taken place and a private burial will take place at a future date.

"Count your Blessings, count them one by one. Count your Blessings, see what God has done." As written in our Mom's personal testimony, we give Praise and Glory to our God for our Mom's precious life.
