It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Edna Mabel Palfrey on May 29, 2011 at the age of 80.
Edna was born on August 31, 1930 in Usherville, Sask. Once coming to Vernon Edna was enrolled in business school and became community minded. Edna was a longtime “sister lady” with the Royal Purple as well as was a member of the Anglican Women’s Auxiliary. Along with being an avid curler and a longtime member of the Vernon Golf and Country Club, she was also well known for her judging and coaching within the Vernon Figure Skating Association.
Edna is survived by her son, Rod Palfrey and her two grandchildren, Brock and Kayla Palfrey. As well her brothers; Norm (Lorainne) Pottle, Ray (Kathy) Pottle, Earl (Evelyn) Pottle, Steve (Yvonne) Pottle, Jim (Violet) Pottle, and sisters; Ivy Gunderson, Joan (Larry) Rossiter, Shirley (Ron) Schlamp, Blanche (Larry) Delanoy, Linda (Ron) Neiszner and Darlene (Doug) Gaunt. Also, Edna is survived by numerous nieces and nephews, extended family and many loving friends. Not a day will go by that Edna will not be deeply missed.
Thank you to all the hard working staff at VJH and all the friends and family for their support. A memorial will be held Friday, June 3 at 2pm at the Anglican All Saints Church, 3205 27th Street followed by a reception at the Elks Lodge, 3103 30th Street, Vernon, BC.
