With sadness, the family announces the passing of Edith on November 26, 2021.
Edith was born in Niverville, MB, and grew up and went to school there. She was the middle child with siblings, Lawrence, Audrey, Norma, and Brian. In 1947 she married John Spence, and they lived on McKenzie Island, Ontario for a number of years. Together they raised three children, Clifford, Diane and Kenneth. They moved to Winnipeg in 1958, and she worked in banking with CIBC and HFC. Edith lived in Nanaimo, BC for a number of years, until moving back to Winnipeg in 2001. For the last 14 years, she lived at Bethania Personal Care home.
Edith was predeceased by her parents and siblings, and husband John, in 1994.
Left to mourn her passing are her children, Clifford, Diane, and Ken (Mary); grandchildren, Kimberly, Chet, Lexi and Taylor; and numerous nieces and nephews.
