The friends and family of Edna Greenfield wish to announce that she passed away on February 5, 2015 at the age of 83 at River View Health Centre in Winnipeg.
She is survived and deeply missed by Harry, her husband of almost 65 years, her sister Iris Boughton, her children Susan (Real Alarie), Keith (Penny), and Paul (Jerri), as well as her grandchildren Ainsley (Matt Christensen), Christine (Stephen Rose), Melanie (Caleb Mangaard), and Chad (Amanda), and her great grandchildren Ever, Coraline, Xander, Laelle, and Tavin. She is also deeply missed by her nieces and nephews and their families, and by her many friends.
She was predeceased by her grandson Sean Greenfield on January 31, 2009, and by her sisters Dorothy Chesney and Constance Pember.
Edna was born on February 22, 1931 in Dagenham, England. On March 25, 1950 she married Harry Greenfield and in 1957 they emigrated to Winnipeg. After many years working at Palliser Furniture she retired and has since spent much of her leisure time doing the things she loved; playing golf, darts, bowling, and line dancing.
Edna was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2012 and had one lung successfully removed at Christmas that year. Unfortunately the cancer had moved to her kidney and appeared in her other lung and despite her iron will, she succumbed.
Edna asked specifically that we thank the Palliative Care Unit in Winnipeg, especially Michelle, Sean, and Wendy, as well as the excellent staff at River View and her personal physician Dr. Gillian Breckman. All of these people did their best for her, and she was very grateful.
She also wanted to thank her wonderful children who gave her such good care at the end.
Cremation has taken place and a gathering of family and friends will be held on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in ANAVETS Unit 283, 3584 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Instead of flowers Edna asked that donations be made to the charity of your choice.
