Edith May Honeyman
1920 – 2016
It is with deep sorrow that the family of Edith Honeyman announces her passing on Saturday, February, 6, 2016 at the Kimberley Special Care Home at 96 years of age.
Edith was born on January 8, 1920 in Newcastle, England. She was a wonderful homemaker, loving mother and wife, faithfully looking after her family and her elderly mother for many years. Edith was well known for her sewing, knitting and baking abilities. She shared her baked goods with neighbours and relatives. She enjoyed the produce from her garden and loved the flowers in the yard. Edith enjoyed camping with the family, fishing at White Swan Lake and seasonal family gatherings. In later years, Edith enjoyed a drive in the car with husband, Dick, around town and down to Marysville morning and evening.
Edith is survived by her daughter, Linda (Mas) Iwasawa; grandchildren Monique and Christopher; great grandchildren Stella and Gillian; son Robert “Rob” (Wendy) and grandchildren Terry, Yvonne and Harlee. She was predeceased by her husband Dick, son David James, daughter Judith Lee, brother Thomas (Margaret) Wilson and a number of brothers and sisters-in-law on the Honeyman side of the family.
A graveside service for Edith will be held in the Kimberley Cemetery later in the spring of 2016. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to: The Memorial Fund of the Pines, c/o Kimberley Special Care Home, 386 – 2nd Avenue, Kimberley, BC, V1A 2Z8.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
