Edna Rowena Colbourne

Leaving to mourn with loving memories are son, Brent (Giselle – and their beloved dog Bella that Edna adored) Guinchard; son, Bill (Debra) Guinchard and daughter, Carolann (Maurizio Cimini) Guinchard, and grandsons Ethan and Andrew Guinchard.

Edna was a fiercely independent person. She had a quick wit, and loved a little friendly debate. She was a generous and loyal friend, and her door was always open to friend and stranger alike. Whether it was over a cup of tea and a chat, or an hours long game of cards, nobody enjoyed a good laugh like she did; and she was typically the first to get the joke. She was always curious, but never judgmental. Her motto was “you be you.” She was loved by all and will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her.
A service of remembrance will take place on Friday, January 7th, 2022 at 10 Am from Fillatre’s Funeral Home Chapel, 4 St. Marks Avenue to a maximun of 50 people. Reverend Jocelyn Cook officiating. Vaxccine passport, ID and mask required. A private family burial will take place at Mt. Patricia cemetery immediately following the service.
