Predeceased by her husband’s George Mahoney of Flatlands in 1975 and William (Bill) Irvine in 2009. Daughter of the late Wilbur and Amanda (Leblanc) Sharpe of Squaw Cap New Brunswick. Edna was also pre deceased by two sisters, Shirley as an infant, Sister Helen Steeves (2001), Brothers Don Sharpe (1984), Wendell Sharpe (2004), Frank Sharpe (2008).

Edna was an active member with the CWL for over 50 years and in her pastime she loved to knit, sew, needlepoint and was a ferocious crib player along with of course her favorite, playing bridge, with her bridge group of friends. She worked at the Soldiers Memorial Hospital for 20 years on the site where the Villa is located and (ironically) had just moved in about a week before she died.

Special mention goes to Barb and Ann, sister-in law and friend who cared and were held very close to Edna’s heart. Mom was a second Mother to many nieces and nephews, Mike and Bernie Mahoney, Leah and Vernon Gouchie and her brother Howard.

Her nephew Terry summed it up just right, Edna was a real sweetheart to everyone she touched in her long lifespan. She will be dearly missed and we can all be relieved to know that she is in a better place and no longer suffering.

I was so saddened to hear of Edna's passing. She was a wonderful, quiet woman with the biggest hugs ever. I loved playing bridge with her and against her. She was very good at the game and truly enjoyed it. She never failed to remind me of the days my Dad used to pick her up on the bus to go to school and loved that he always waited for her if she wasn't on time. :0)
She was a sweet, kind woman and one that I will keep in my heart forever. My sympathies to the family on the loss of this beautiful soul. May she RIP. xoxoox

My sincere condolences Debbie & Janice.
I was so sad about the passing of your Mom. You couldn't find a nicer person. Bill was so fond of his "Sissy" as he teasingly called her. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless!!

My sincere condolences to Edna's family. We first came to know Edna when we moved next door to her on Windsor Street. My young daughter became fast friends with Edna...the red licorice was the key in their initial meeting. She was a true treasure and will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. May she rest in peace.
