February 10, 1913 – March 27, 2011

After a brief illness and a long full life, Edith died peacefully at Lady Minto Hospital, Salt Spring Island, in the company of family and friends, on Sunday, March 27th. Edith was predeceased by her loving husband Aubrey. She will be missed by her nephews and nieces: John and Gillian Young (UK) and their children; Simon, Rachel, Christopher; Barbara and Colin Steward (North Vancouver) and their children Corina, Graham, Stephen; Stephen and Gay Young and their son James; and Gavin Baldwin (South Africa).

She will be missed by her many friends and neighbours on Salt Spring Island who have enjoyed her hospitality, grace and spunky personality for many years. Special thanks to those who helped Edith maintain her independent life in the home she loved, especially Clare and John, Bob and Sue, Dan, Eddy, Tony and Ed, Jane, Bob, Manfred and Rita, Cheryl and her distant but close pals Tony and Gillian in Australia. Edith was grateful for the years of dedicated personal care from Dr David Woodley, and the caring and capable nursing staff at Lady Minto Hospital who made her comfortable her in her last days.

An informal gathering of friends will be held to share memories of Edith at her home on Saturday, April 16th at 3 pm.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Salt Spring Island Foundation, Box 244 Salt Spring Island BC V8K 2V9, or online at
