Edna Estelle Rathbone

July 14, 1948-March 5, 2014

It is with profound sadness that we announce that our mother Edna has lost her long battle with MS/COPD/pulmonary fibrosis. She fought long and hard, but in the end she just wasn’t strong enough to beat the pneumonia.

She was predeceased by her husband of 45 years, Donald, and her parents Violette and Raymond Normand.

She is survived by her children Suzanne (Don) son Ron (Mary) and grandchildren Donnie, Nick, and Kailee. Also her best friend Jackie Huffman who was at her side when she moved on to the next life, and was closer to her then a sister.

Edna had a huge heart, and we were so proud of how she fought for those who needed a voice, with her advocacy, as well as her work for the Barriere Food Bank and Barriere Search and Rescue.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Jackie, Jody and Bob who were such a comfort for our mother. Also the nurses on 7 North at Royal Inland Hospital.
