Edna Jackson

October 24, 1939November 9, 2020

Edna Irene Jackson born October 24th 1939 slipped away peacefully with her family by her side on Monday November 9th 2020 at the age of 81.

Edna will be missed by her sisters, Iva and Marion and her brother Michael.

Also mourning her loss are her children, Michael (Tami), Melodie (Gerald), Andrea, Eric (Cindy), Patricia, Dorothy (Kevin), grandchildren Kirkland, Erica, Andrea, Aren, Kendra, Nicole, a great grandson Kane, a niece Angela (Walter) children Melissa and Ryan, and a nephew James.

Edna will be dearly missed by long-time friend and devoted partner, Phil Walsh and by Phil’s children, Jackie (Dan), Jana (Jason), and Bryan (Janice), grandchildren Mathew, Jordan, Graham, Mitchell and Zakry.

Edna’s greatest joys were the 12 grandchildren. Edna couldn’t wait each year to add the new school pictures from all the grandkids in their special frames, front and centre in the living room. She loved being Gramma North for her Eastern Ontario grandchildren and looked forward to their weekly calls. Edna attended every event she could, chess tournaments, soccer games, sliding parties and of course hockey games. Edna was a true “Rink” Gramma, spending countless hours cheering on her teams.

The family would like to thank Dr. Wiebe, Dr. Wehner, Dr. Olsen and especially all the nurses on the 3rd and 2nd floors of the hospital for their wonderful care.

In lieu of flowers a donation to LWD Hospital Foundation would be greatly appreciated by the family.

Cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held at a later date.

Online condolences may be made at www.brownfuneralhomekenora.com BROWN FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION CENTRE ENTRUSTED WITH ARRANGEMENTS.
