Edna Elizabeth MacInnis
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edna
Elizabeth MacInnis of Hazeldale, Victoria County. Edna died
peacefully at age 80 on Sunday, March 31, 2019, surrounded by loving
family in the Victoria County Memorial Hospital.
Born at Orangedale East on April 17th,
1938, she was a daughter of the late Ross and Margaret (MacDonald)
Edna’s unassuming resilience and determination were
shown as she raised her young family after being widowed half way
through her life. She learned to drive at the age of
40! She was employed at Little Narrows Gypsum Company for 19
years, retiring in 2003.
She was a faithful member of the Little Narrows Presbyterian
Church. Edna grew up in a large family and remained extremely
close and dedicated to her siblings. Whether it was a
spirited game of cards with the brothers and sisters or vacations with
the sisters (the Golden Girls), she cherished her time spent and
She is survived by sons, Ian (Elaine), Truro; Lee (Heather),
Hazeldale; Shawn (Margaret Ann), Washabuck; her beloved talented
grandchildren, Daniel & Sarah, Connor & Morgan and
John Ross & Emily; sister, Mary (Frederick); brothers,
Thompson, Archie (Velda), and Malcolm; sisters-in-law, Jessie
MacKinnon, Carman MacKinnon, Evelyn Hebb, Marilyn Matheson, Judith
Nelson, Margie MacPherson, Marcie McIntyre and Betty MacPherson;
brother-in-law, Calvin MacInnis; numerous nieces and nephews; godson
Predeceased by husband, Dan; brothers, Peter, Alex, Jimmy,
DJ, Murdock in infancy; sister, Effie; sister-in-law, Annie Mae
Many thanks for the support of family and friends and the
doctors and staff of Victoria County Memorial Hospital. And
above all thanks to Heather for making these last months as
comfortable and enjoyable as anyone could imagine!
In keeping with Edna’s wishes there will be no visitation or
memorial service. A Graveside Committal Service will be held
in Little Narrows Cemetery in the summer of 2019.
