1924- 2011 

Ivey_Edna_sqOn Thursday November 3, 2011 Edna Ivey passed away peacefully at Boundary Trails Health Center after a lengthy period of illness.

 She was born near Grand Falls, Newfoundland in January 1924 and was married to the one true love of her life, William (Bill) Ivey for 60 years. 

She was predeceased by the two Bills in her life: her beloved husband in 2006 and eldest son, in 2010. She leaves to mourn her daughter-in-law, Bonnie of Chapleau, Ontario and her four children and their spouses, Christopher and Kathy of Ottawa, Michael and Amanda and great granddaughter Kyndal of Calgary and Michael’s first wife, Allisa and great granddaughter, Tegan, also of Calgary, Danny and Jolene of Drayton Valley and Mary Lynn and Simon and great granddaughters, Rose and Susanna of Devon, England; Edna’s second son, Dr. Jeff Ivey and Elaine reside in Morden with their son, Tim and Dana, granddaughter, Jennifer and husband, Ali live in Vancouver and grandson, Jeffrey Jr. lives in Winnipeg; Edna’s third son, Clifford lives with his wife, Christine in Winnipeg.  Edna was also predeceased by two sisters Florence and Francis (Fanny) and leaves to mourn five other siblings, Dorcas Marro from New Hampshire, Harold Boone and wife Rob from New Hampshire, Steve Boone and wife Ada, from Labrador City, Nfld., Andrea Hillier and husband Jim from Nfld. and sister Diane Stone also from Nfld., plus many other nephews and nieces and cousins.  

The core essence of Edna’s life was family and friends. Her highly creative skills were directed in the area of providing love and comfort to them through knitting, cooking, baking and entertaining. Her home was always open and the kitchen full of good things. She will be remembered for her generous gifts of hand knit mittens and baby clothes and her famous dream cookies, oat cakes and Newfie bread. Her creative skills in knitting also allowed her to have a long, successful and happy career in the commercial knitting industry in Winnipeg, which was also marked by many lifelong friendships. Unfortunately, her progressive blindness put a premature end to her career but the silver lining of that, was a long and rewarding retirement with family in Morden. 

Memorial service was held on Tuesday November 8, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Morden. Ash interment will take place at Elmwood Cemetery in Winnipeg at a later date. 

In lieu of flowers, family and friends are invited to make a donation in Edna’s memory to either the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) or to Boundary Trails Health Center Foundation.
