MARGARET EDNA SHOESMITH

Edna passed away peacefully in her sleep at the age of 91, on April 12, 2019.
She was predeceased by her mother Margaret and her father William.
She is survived by her brother Jim and his wife Sheila and their family; and cousins, Gail Pritchard, Shelagh Russell, Margaret Delmage and Joanne Hondubura, and their families.
She grew up in Winnipeg in the areas of Weston and the North End, attended Florence Nightingale and Isaac Newton Schools, where she excelled. She followed in education and became a teacher. She worked both in Elfinstone and Winnipeg.
She was a longtime member of Elim Chapel, where she also taught Sunday School to many children. Edna had a testimony of Jesus Christ, her Lord, her Redeemer, and her King of Kings. Edna, as a woman, was devoted to pray for many people and was always asking how she could pray for them. She loved to support Christian ministries, especially those devoted to the poor and to children.
The last seven years she has been a resident of Beacon Hill Lodge and was very well cared for there. The family thanks the staff for their care of Edna and those who continued to visit her during these years.
In lieu of flowers, we encourage donations to Living Bible Explorers, children's charity, 600 Burnell Street, Winnipeg, MB R3G 2B7.
Funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at Bardal Funeral Home, 843 Sherbrook Street. Interment to follow at Brookside Cemetery.
