Edna O’Brien

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Edna O’Brien, 88, peacefully with the comfort of family by her side at the Boyne Lodge on April 1st, 2019.

Edna will be sadly missed by her children: Theresa (Bruce), Rick, Ron. Daughter-in-Law Brenda (Bob), Grandchildren Troy (Taylor), Mitchell, Taya, Luke and Sachal (Katie).

She was predeceased by husband Al, son Pat, parents David and Helen Heinrichs, six sisters and two brothers.

Edna was a devout member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church and had a strong faith in God which gave her peace throughout her life. She had a great love of knitting, crocheting and gardening. The deer and rabbits loved her garden as well. Edna loved spending time with family playing games and cards. She also loved attending any activities of her grandchildren.

A viewing will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Friday April 05, 2019 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. A funeral mass will follow at 2:00 p.m. Officiated by Fr. Mario Avelino Veloso.

Edna will be interred at the Greenwood Cemetery in Carman following the Mass.

Edna’s family would like to send a very special heartfelt thank you to Dr. Villeda, NP Vanessa Jamault, the Carman Boyne Lodge staff and volunteers for all the compassionate care provided to our mother. You are all angels.

In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Edna can be made to the Boyne Valley Hostel Corp (PCH Capital Fund), Box 1644, Carman MB R0G 0J0 or a charity of your choice.

To the O'Brien family,
We have a very special place in our hearts for Edna. She helped us out with score-keeping with Special Olympics Carman Amigos bowling. What was supposed to be one afternoon as an emergency fill in, turned into many years with our Club. We were very grateful!
She adored her grandchildren, and often shared passionately about their hockey adventures.
Our sympathies go out to all of her family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Hoping good memories help in the days ahead. I have such fond childhood memories of visiting the corner store in our old neighbourhood. Your Mom always made us feel welcome.

I am so very grateful to have been called, so I could attend the service for Edna. I worked for her as a teenager and stayed close all these years later. She was a wonderful boss and dear friend and I so enjoyed helping with her terrific children. She will be greatly missed, say hi to mom up there!
