1936 – 2011

It is with great sadness that the family of Edward (Ed) Penner announces his passing on Saturday, April 9, 2011 after a long and heroic battle with cancer.

Eddie is survived by his loving wife, Marg; son, Terry (Janice) of Burnaby, daughter, Allison (Len) of Lethbridge; daughter, Jen (Dwayne) of Prince George; seven grandchildren: Kurtis, Kelsey, Melissa, Katie, Danny, Ryan, and Taylor; brother, Len (Linda) of Saskatoon; numerous nieces, nephews and their families.

Eddie was a loving, kind and gentle husband, father, grandfather and friend who always saw the best in everyone and everything. His family and friends will always remember him for his easy going manner, his thoughtfulness, as well as his sense of humor. He will remain in our hearts forever.

A celebration of Eddie’s life will be held on Thursday, April 14th, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. A reception will follow in the Tea Room.
