EDITH SAGI (nee VASS) December 19, 1931 - September 29, 2017 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Edith Sagi. She is mourned by her grandsons George (Kathleen) and Bill (Yani), great-grandson Dean and his mother, Lhen. She was predeceased by her husband George, and daughter Susan. Edith was born in Hungary where she received her degree in Chemical Engineering. She later immigrated to Canada with her husband and daughter in 1957. Edith spent her career as head of a Medical Laboratory at Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre. Edith was a deeply intelligent and independent person with a warm heart. Throughout her life, she enjoyed travelling the world with her husband and friends. She was a master bridge player and lover of arts and culture, especially the opera. After retirement, Edith and George spent their winters in Sun City Centre, Florida where they enjoyed time with close friends and family. Above all else in Edith's life stood her love for her family. We will be forever grateful for her presence in our lives. There will be no service at Edith's request. A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, October 12 between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. at Thomson "In the Park" Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Boulevard. If desired, a donation in her name can be made to a charity of your choice. THOMSON "IN THE PARK" 204-925-1120 Condolences may be sent to

  • It's too hard to come up with the right words for your broken hearts, but always know that all of us love you so much, George and Billy and family! 💔 - Posted by: Lisa Taylor (Extended family) on: Oct 09, 2017

  • Edith was a lifetime friend and I will miss her for the rest of my days. They were the first people we met when we came to Canada and they were very good to us, generous and loving. They loved my infant son and we spent many happy hours together. Holidays, summers, weekend trips, concerts, hours of playing bridge are all happy memories. The last nine winters of my husband Frank's life in Florida as next door neighbors were the best of times. We shared the love of music, the love of books and an interest in politics. I will miss our evening conversations discussing the day's events. I still want to reach for the phone when events unfold. They were such a big part of our lives that the feelings of loss are difficult to put into words. Dear Edith, rest in peace and know that we will miss you very much, Elizabeth - Posted by: Elizabeth Stockl (Friend) on: Oct 07, 2017
