EDITH MOTKALUK (DEAFFIE)
Date of Passing: Jun 22, 2020Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
She will be remembered with much love by her daughter Brenda; son Vince; and his children, Judy, Jaden and Jarod; daughter Barbara and her children, Myles and Nolan.
Edith was a lively, social person who loved sports and played softball for many years. While working full time, she raised her children alone, supported them in sports and other activities, volunteered at Deer Lodge community club, and was very involved at her church. She was a member of the Winnipeg Press Club in the 90s and was Secretary of the Schmockey Committee for a period of time.
Eventually she followed her heart and worked in the far north on the DEW line. She travelled to Europe, and to her bucket list destination of Australia.
Her adventures were slowed over the past several years due to poor health, but she always pushed herself to the limit and she remained resolutely independent. Edith was a force to be reckoned with!
In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to the Manitoba Lung Association or the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
Arrangements for a private service are pending.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Edith and I go back to the 60's! So many good memories! Our children were the same ages or close to the same ages. She was such an active cheerful person, never let life get in the way, right up to the end. So sorry to see her go, she will be sorely missed. - Posted by: Sharron Henry (Friend) on: Aug 08, 2020
Edith was a great friend to my mother, Alberta Hodgins, for decades while they lived next door each other on Winchester Street and long after until my mom's death in 2015. Edith accomplished much in life, including raising three kids, and I always associate her with a smile and lively conversation. We stayed in touch with Christmas cards and occasional phone calls. She truly made a difference in the world. - Posted by: Bev Phillips (Neighbour from Winchester Street) on: Jul 12, 2020
I always enjoyed Edith and her open house approach to life. She was proud of the three (Brenda, Vince and Barbara) children. I have missed Edith’a friendship along with the special friendship with all of you. Wilson - Posted by: Wilson Anderdon (Friend) on: Jul 02, 2020
Edith and I were friends at St Bede’s, and you might say co-workers at many parish events. It was quite a few years ago. Sometimes life takes us all in different directions. I remember her smile. She was a lovely person. I always enjoyed working with her and our conversations. My condolences to her family. - Posted by: Catherine Lee (Friend) on: Jun 27, 2020
