In Montreal on March 12, 2021, at the age of 94, Edna died peacefully and surrounded by her family. Predeceased by her parents, David Spencer Allan and Edna Muir, and Raymond Bolla, her loving husband for 69 years.
Proud mother of Peter (Marika), John (Marie), and Susan. Grandmother to Sophie, Geneviève, Mariane, Alec, Christine, Sean, Michael, Scott, and Lauren, and great grandmother to Edith, Mathilde and Eli.
Edna was exceptionally talented, loving, and organized. She raised a family, taught elementary school during the day, and went to university at night. An independent thinker, she always had an opinion on a subject, a witty sense of humor, and a keen interest in others. She loved children.
The family thanks the doctors, nurses, and caregivers (Lucie, Sylvie, and team) at the CHSLD Vigi Dollard des Ormeaux for their excellent care and devotion during the last 5 years. Special thanks to Kendall for her loving care for the last 8 years.
As per Edna’s wishes, the burial will be private. Due to COVID, a reception for family and friends will have to wait or go virtual. In the meantime, the family would love to hear any memories, thoughts, or stories that you may have of Edna. Please email them to Edna’s granddaughter, Mariane, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Instead of flowers, a donation in Edna’s memory to Alzheimer Quebec, www.alzheimer.ca, would be appreciated.
