April 23, 1932 - November 22, 2020

It is with great sadness that the family announce the passing of Edna Gretsinger on November 22, 2020.

Edna was predeceased by her beloved husband, Lorne; their infant children, Lorne, Edna, John, and Sara; and her parents, Gudlauger and Beatrice Magnusson.

She and Lorne started their married life in Pine Falls, Manitoba and went on to live and work in numerous places around the world before returning to Winnipeg where they bolstered their roles as favourite aunt and uncle. When they became great-aunt and uncle, stories from living abroad became legendary within the family. At the time of Edna’s passing, she was a cherished great-great-aunt. She leaves loving memories with those who knew her and will be missed.


Edna’s family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by watching the photo-biography above. They also encourage the sharing of photos, memories, and stories by making use of the comment section on this page.

As per her wishes, we will celebrate her life (post Covid restrictions) in the manner she would have chosen. We will meet with words not of sadness, but of adventures shared, people missed, and family loved.
