Edith Cowden passed away, August 25, 2014 at her home at Points West Living, Stettler, Alberta at the age of 87 years; she was born in Berlin, Germany on March 9, 1927.
She has touched all of our lives in a very profound and loving way. Edith has overcome a lot of adversity and has had a lot of magnificent accomplishments in her life; some which she has shared with each and every one of us. She has helped so many people with their health problems over the years, from stop smoking to helping young women experience motherhood.
Edith had a way of coming into your life and making it much better. She had an answer for everything and a fabulous sense of humor and once she touched your life the ‘Edith magic’ happened and you were hooked.
Edith was a very private person; she did not like a lot of her personal life known, as we all know by her eye rolls and finger shaking, just too gently let you know that was not something she was going to discuss. Edith was a very feisty and determined woman who loved each and every one of us in her own way. As we all loved her.
Edith is survived by her chosen special family Mary Jane and Jim Hoover of Stettler, Alberta and their family, Allan Docherty of Erskine, Alberta as well as the caregivers of Cottage A and the entire staff of Points West Living in Stettler and her dear friends through the years.
A Come and Go Tea was held on Saturday, August 30, 2014 from 2 to 4 PM at Points West Living. Memorial donations may be made in her name to an animal rescue organization of your own choice. Condolences may be viewed or sent to the family at www.stettlerfuneralhome.com
