Edythe Arnot Roane (nee Brodie)

October 14, 1924 – April 24, 2020
Heaven just gained an awesome angel! She rehearsed here on Earth and did a great job!
Ede, Mum, Mama, Granny, GG, Maw was born in Winnipeg but spent all her adult years in BC.
She had 95 years of a very full life, everything from Bank Teller to Orchardist to “Ranch Lady” running a horseback riding ranch on 800 acres in the North Shuswap for over 30 years. She rode a horse as if she were part of it. She came into this world instinctively knowing she was connected to everything around her and taught all of her children a deep appreciation for Nature.
Mum was predeceased by her infant son Randy in 1960 and her Husband Herb in 2001. Left to miss her but forever grateful she was our Mum are her 6 children: Terry Roane (Gary), Laurie Roane (Art), Kelli Muskett (Phil), Valli Moore (Bill), Dan Roane (Helena), Rusty Roane and 14 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. Mum was fortunate to gain a dear friend in the years she resided in Heaton Place, Kathy Reckseidler who helped her get through some of the tougher times involved in the aging process while sharing many good laughs. We are forever grateful for Kathy and her family.
Mum’s love for all animals and in particular cats was known by all. She also loved music, played the harmonica, keyboard and accordion. She and Dad were terrific dancers. Mum had a contagious, magical sense of humour that carried her through the ups and downs of her life journey. You have more than earned your rest Mama….Enjoy! We will carry on and try to do it with as much grace and humour as you did, you are forever in our hearts.
We will be celebrating our precious Mother’s life at a later date…In Her Style!!!
