July 30, 1959 – August 7, 2023
With broken hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Edythe on August 7, 2023, in St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 64.
Edythe is survived by her children David (Sula) and Claire (Geoff) and their father, Terry; grandchildren Metta and William; her parents Frieda and Edward Epp, sisters Deborah (Gerry), Susan (Rick), Cheryl (Gene) and their families; lifelong friend Val; and her furry companion, Sprinkles.
Edythe was born in Swan River but spent most of her life in Winnipeg. She graduated from Red River Collegiate and had a successful career with CancerCare for over 20 years.
Edythe enjoyed going to concerts, plays and movies. She also loved gardening, walking her dog through Bunns Creek, and going out with her family.
Recently, she moved to St. James to be closer to her daughter and grandson, while always looking forward to visits from her son and his family when they visit from the United States. She was a very talented artist, musician and avid animal lover. She was the definition of a lioness when it came to her family, a protector and loved fiercely until her last day.
"Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable."
- Wizard of Oz
By Edythe's wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held.
The family would also like to thank the St. Boniface's Palliative Unit team for their care and kindness.
