Oct 18, 1920 – Dec 3, 2012
Edith passed away very peacefully at Home, on 3 Dec 2012 at the age of 92.
Edith is survived by her four children – Floyd Haller (Jean) and family, Mary Stewart and family, Rose Traub and family, and Margaret Emery (Chuck) and family. Edith leaves behind many, many Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren and Great Great Grandchildren, and extremely large extended family.
Edith spent many years growing up on a farm in the Heffley Lake area before moving to Kamloops. There she met Albert Heywood and within the coming year moved on to his homestead in Clearwater.
Edith worked as a custodian for our local school board for many years, and as a cook in later years at Dutch Lake Resort here in Clearwater. She volunteered for many organizations such as the Girl Guides, an active member in forming the Co-op, the then North Thompson Credit Union, The Yellowhead Ecological Society, The Hospital Auxiliary, 4-H, The Clothes Company to name a few. Edith was a very active participant in the Logging shows around the valley collecting many trophies.
Edith was the rock and the foundation of our family. She loved us all no matter of our thoughts or action, rain or shine. When you remove a rock you leave a large hole. Ever Greatful for her counsel and her love she will be terribly missed.
The family would like to thank all of the great friends, family and Health Care Workers that assisted us in Mom’s care.Print This Obituary & Condolences
