We regret to announce the passing of Edna Hill (nee Holmes) on February 25, 2009. Edna was born April 11, 1925 in Vernon, BC to Clara Louise and John Gorton Holmes. She married Theodore Howard Hill in Vernon on September 5, 1944. They moved to Castlegar, BC and built a lovely home in Kinnaird. In her life, Edna was an avid gardener and a skillful seamstress. She returned to Vernon in 1991 and moved to Port Coquitlam in 2004 to be closer to her girls and grandchildren. She is predeceased by her husband Ted; her brothers Clarence, Stanley and Gordon and her sister Vera (Weaver). Edna will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her daughters Shannon (Kevin) and Sheri (Pat), and grandsons Holden, Rylan and Carson. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Mary Holmes and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. In honour of her request, there will be no public memorial service.
Peaceful be thy rest, dear mother
It is sweet to breathe thy name;
In life we loved you dearly
In death we do the same.
