(nee HAINES)
April 22, 1933 – July 30, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Edith at the age of 88. Loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend, sister, and wife.
Edith was predeceased by her husband of 67 years, Peter Penner. She leaves to mourn her seven children, James (Faye), Linda, Terry (Sandi), Tim (Delia), Karl, Nancy (Vasco) and Kimberly (Ted); grandchildren, Lisa, Jana, Roberta, Carmen, Dianne, Cole, Jason, Grant, Jesse, Peter, Logan, Erin and Maureen; and many great-grandchildren.
Edith is predeceased by her parents, Peter and Karen Haines, sister Ruth (Walter), sister Gerda (Earl), brother Ralph (Karen) and grandchild Brad Penner.
Edith was born and raised in Headingley, MB. As a young child you could often find Edith hitchhiking up the #1 Highway to school. She met Peter at age 15, they married and started a family, raising seven children on their farm in Cartier, MB. After having many grandkids, her name soon became Maim, which most of you know her as. Edith loved to knit, garden, and bake. She loved the Lord and would spread the word of Jesus by giving away Bibles.
Special thanks to the doctors and staff at Carman Hospital.
As per Edith's wishes, cremation has taken place.

Doyles' Funeral Home, Carman
in care of arrangements.

  • I can imagine Edith dancing with the Lord! WOW. She was the most humble, patience, kind women I have ever met in my life and so in love with Jesus. Thank you Edith for sharing the Lord with me and 100s of others. I am so very thankful for our phone conversations. I know her family has peace with her passing, as she's in the presence with our Lord Jesus. I pray God's comfort upon them at this time. - Posted by: Pam Reis (Friend) on: Aug 07, 2021
