1927 – 2022
Edna died peacefully December 27, 2022, at the Louise Jensen Care Centre in Camrose, Alberta, at the age of 95. She lived her life with grace, love, kindness and dedication to both her family and the love of her life, her husband Paul.
She will be remembered with love by her three children, Louise McBain (Bob McBain), Terri Stauffer (Warren Stauffer) and Jim Abele (Mary Nierva). She is also lovingly remembered by her grandchildren, Amy McBain (Jarrett Campbell), Faye McBain (Brett Tracy-Gould), Scott Stauffer (Nicole Stauffer), Taryn Stauffer and Claire Abele; and great-grandchildren, Grayson Stauffer, Emmett Stauffer, Miller Tracy-Gould, Perrie Tracy-Gould and Francis Campbell. She will also be remembered by her two brothers, Bert Patterson of Toronto and Ted Patterson of Winnipeg and numerous nieces and nephews.
Edna was predeceased by her beloved husband Paul, her sisters Emma, Nancy and Tizzie, her brothers Jim and Tom, and her parents Edward and Alice Patterson.
Edna was born May 13, 1927 in Newcastle-on-Tyne, England. The family immigrated to Canada in 1930. She grew up in the McCauley neighbourhood in Edmonton. Edna married Paul Abele on May 24, 1950 and began their life together first in Bonnie Doon and then in Hardisty/Capilano. Paul and Edna were both active members of St. Michael-Resurrection Catholic parish and lived in their home for over 62 years. They were very lucky to move together to assisted care in Tofield, and then long-term care in Camrose. Edna was thankful for the many blessings in her life, in particular her family, friends and her relationship with her beloved Paul. They had a strong and loving marriage. The family will dearly miss both of them.
The family would like to thank the caregivers, nurses and staff at the Louise Jensen Centre in Camrose, for their kind and compassionate care for Edna. They would also like to thank the staff at the Sunshine Villa in Tofield.
Cremation has taken place and a memorial/celebration of life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to the Edmonton Food Bank.
Nous offrons nos plus sincères condoléances à la famille et aux amis de Edna Abele nee Patterson 2022 et espérons que leur souvenir pourra être une source de réconfort pendant cette période difficile. Vos pensées et vos mots aimables sont grandement appréciés.
