Edda Martinig

July 17, 1931 - July 8, 2016

Tribute

Edda was born in Pulfero, Italy to Natale and Irma Blasutig. She was the second eldest of eight children. Edda moved to Canada in 1952 to reconnect with and marry Carlo, who had come to Powell River two years previously. Mom’s early years here were pretty terrifying: new country, new home, new language and lots of work. She had two sons: Reno born in 1956 and George in 1962.

Edda worked hard in the garden, raising chickens, rabbits and pigeons. Mostly she devoted her whole life to taking care of her men! The loss of her husband and son within two years of each other devastated Edda. Once she moved to her own apartment she rallied back and, for the first time in her life, became quite independent. We were very proud of her.

Mom strongly resisted moving to Evergreen Care Unit, but once again rallied back and came to call it her home. This was very much due to the awesome care she received from nurses, care aides and others who all treated her as their own Noni. For this we will be forever grateful.

Mourning her loss are Edda’s son George and his wife Lora, grandchildren Chad (Melissa), Chase (Cheryl), Elyse and Chesney, three great-grandchildren Kate, Max and Boden. She will also be missed by remaining siblings Ada and Giovanni and their families as well as many nieces and nephews.

Mom cherished her visits from friends, especially Mary Potesta, Frank and Dina Sirach, Zia Maria, Steve Bartfai and Jordan Needham.

We are relieved she is no longer in such deep pain and back with Carlo and Reno. We love you mom..
