Edna Mae Erickson

February 12, 1929 - June 6, 2016


It is with great sadness we say farewell to our mom, grandmother and friend, Edna Erickson, who passed away peacefully at Evergreen Care Unit. Her daughter Sharon was by her side. She was predeceased by her husband Vern Erickson and stepson Ken Hunt.

Edna is survived by her children Sharon (Bill), Jeff (Fran), Derrick (Sharon), Leif and Terry (Terry); 11 grandchildren Myriah (John), Hayley (Brandon), Alycia (Brandon), Alana (Matt), Jake (Melissa), Bo, Brandon (Jenny), Heidi (Brad), Justin (Jessica), Jessie (Mark) and Shane (Robin); 12 great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and extended family.

Edna was born in Victoria Harbour, Ontario, to a large family; she had 10 siblings. In 1959, with her sister's family, Edna made the venture across Canada by car to make a new home in Duncan on Vancouver Island. There she met her husband Vern. They married in 1960 and moved to Powell River in 1962, where they raised their family.

Edna was a member of the Pentecostal Church in Powell River, where she shared her beliefs by word and by music with friends and parishioners.

Edna was musically talented. She sang, played the piano, organ and guitar. She played the piano at church at times and for local seniors, but her true passion was reading. She read her bible, Christian literature and natural-nutrition journals for as long as her eyes would allow. She was a true prayer warrior until near days of her passing. The greatest desire of her heart was that all her family and everyone she knew would find a friend in Jesus, as she had found through her life. Many loved her because they knew they could share anything with her and it would not leave her lips; she was a vault. She would then add them to her prayer list, and it was long.

Edna was a shy, quiet lady, but those who knew her well will not forget her wit, her giggle, or her facial expressions that said a thousand words. Her signature move was when she really got giggling, her hand would go in front of her mouth, that just made us laugh harder.

Edna was well-known for her savoury meals, mouthwatering apple and pumpkin pies, and homemade bread. She served many a mouth around her table over the years, with fond memories and lots of laughter. Her joy was full when her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were there to receive her mouthwatering bites.

Edna's family would like to thank Dr. Strydom, nurses and caregivers at Evergreen Care Unit for their attentive manner and care given to our mother over the past year.

There will be a memorial of Edna's life held at Evangel Pentecostal Church, 5139 Manson Avenue (at the end of Joyce Avenue), Saturday, June 18, at 1 pm.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to summer camp for kids.
