Andrews (Higgins) (Hutchinson), Edith Grace – Age 90, of the Musquodoboit Valley, passed away peacefully in Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro on September 17, 2020.
Edith was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was incredibly loyal and proud of her family and dedicated much of her time to those she loved the most. Edith was a gifted seamstress and craftsperson; dressing many-a bride, filling our Christmas trees with crocheted angels and snowflakes, and protecting our hands with beautiful pot-holders. Beyond being a stoic matriarch, she will also be remembered as a local teacher and “warden” of the blueberry field. During her later years, Edith travelled across much of North America. She enjoyed dipping her toes in the waters of Taylor Head and the North Shore. Edith spent many nights challenging others to a competitive game of Crib, Scrabble, Rummoli, and Spite and Malice, often coming out victorious, regardless of the time of night.
Edith is survived by her children; Donna (Francis) Fraser, Calvin (Martha) Higgins, Phillip (Lorna) Higgins, Irene (Tim) Bowser; grandchildren, Lisa, Roy, Shelly, Pam, Trina, Jill, Brent, Craig, Casey, Emma, Rachel, Lauren and Morgan; son-in-law, Marty; great-grandchildren, Angel, Nicole, Devon, Douglas, Austin, Wyatt, Elsa, Dawson, Elyse, Matthew, Mitchell, Isla, Isabella, Emmett, Evelyn, Aidan, Rylan, Rocco, Gia, Scarlett; great-great-grandchildren, Mason, and Scarlett; sisters, Lydia and Judy; brother-in-law, Herb and sister-in-law, Shirley; as well as many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents, Roy and Elsie (Stewart) Hutchinson; husbands, Douglas Higgins and Fulton Andrews; children, Leonard (in infancy), Sheila, Carolyn; grandchild, Lynne; siblings, Hilda, Donnie, Alice and Jim.
Cremation has taken place.
Family, friends, and loved ones are invited to a reception and celebration of life on Sunday, September 20, at 1 p.m. at the Middle Musquodoboit Provincial Picnic Park. A private family graveside service will be held at a later date.
