Auntie Edna always had a smile on her face. When you were around Edna you couldn't help but smile yourself. Auntie Edna was an angel on earth.

Edna and Ken were great friends! Ken and i shared the same first name and were passionate clarinet players and music lovers. We played music together for many years. Edna and I shared many phone conversations these past years with much in common having lost our spouses and experiencing the love of our family who have become central to our own lives as we age and prepare to pass on to the next adventure beyond this life. I will miss the great yarns (Irish translation: chats) with Edna. Ken and Edna were wonderful friends to us and will always be remembered and missed.

Edna was one of our biggest fans. I always loved to see her beautiful smile as she listened to Dan, Greg and I sing or lead worship at various venues. It always inspired me to keep singing and using our voices to bring joy not just to God but those who came to share in the music. Edna will be missed, but I know the heavens are all shouting cheers of joy because she is home now! Many prayers of comfort and strength go out to each of you. Much love, Richard & Shawna

I am so sorry to hear that my best friend, Edna O'Leary has passed away. We shared so much in the many years that I also lived in Brampton, Ontario. The many times that I was at your place. Many times on New Year's Eve listening to Ken play the piano. Many times with your family either at Donald or Lisa's place or David and Melissa's place, or Linda and Roberts place or Pat and Dan's or my place. When you and Linda came out to BC to visit her brother Geoff we all enjoyed the time together. It did not matter where I was living at any given time I was always welcome. Edna's family adopted me into their family along with my family. The memories are so many for which I am so grateful . Edna I will never forget you. We shared so much. We laughed at lot and cried too. Edna rest in peace. You are no longer in any more pain. I love you so much and I will never forget you.
