Winnifred Margaret Louise Edwards (nee Jackson)

September 6, 1916 – June 3, 2015

Winn was born September 16, 1916 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to her parents William and Ellen Jackson. She spent her childhood in Badger and moved to North Vancouver with her husband Arthur John (Jack) Edwards (predeceased). They had three girls – Heather Spain (predeceased), Sandy Robley of Salt Spring Island, and Sharon Renton of Salt Spring Island. Winn was the grandma to 6 wonderful grandchildren – Shelly Spain, Ryan (Laurie) Bradley, Shawn (Candice) Spain, Jody (John) Lee, Jason Renton, and Christy (Tim) Luckraft. She also had 14 great grandchildren and 1 great great granddaughter.

Winn moved to Salt Spring in 1988 with Jack. He died in 1991. Winn then met Don McCardia and they lived together for years until he died in 2011. Shortly after her daughter Heather’s death in January of 2014, Winn moved into Lady Minto’s Extended Care Unit.

At the age of 98, Winn had enjoyed a wonderful life. She enjoyed her family cabin on the Sunshine Coast, fishing, her dogs, scrabble and crib, and watching the birds out of her living room window.

At Winn’s request, there will be no service.
