Edna worked for many years as Cashier at Union Gas in Stratford and later years in Goderich. After raising their family, Edna and Les moved to Goderich in 1990 just a 20 minute drive from their cottage overlooking Lake Huron. Edna returned to Stratford December 2015 to live at Cedarcroft Place Retirement Residence. Our Mom taught us to live with integrity and to love fiercely. Mom has finally been able to go "Home" and we will miss her to the end of our days. As our Mom wished, cremation has taken place with a private Family gathering to follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the Alzheimer Society or any other Charity of your choice directly or through Rutherford Cremation & Funeral Services. 519-271-5062.
