Myrtle Gladys Wilder (nee Ede)
Surrounded by her family, our beloved mother passed away on Friday, September 7, 2018. She will be forever remembered by her five children Lloyd (Sue), Val (Tom), Dale (Toril), Diana (Paul) and Dan (Rita) as well as her ten grandchildren Mathew, Christine, Tammy, Thomas, Tamara, Makayla, Ryan, Blair, Lindsay and Allison and her sixteen special great grandchildren. Myrt was predeceased by our father, Curtis in 1984.
Born in the Windermere Valley, Mom was the youngest of six children born to Ernest and Winnifred Ede. Mom married dad in 1951 and they spent the early years of their marriage in a logging camp in the Kootenay Park where their first set of twins as well as Dale was born. They moved to the Town of Invermere in 1958 where they welcomed their second set of twins. Mom’s greatest joy was her family. She also loved golf, bowling, curling, bingo, bridge, a competitive game of crib, knitting and baking. We will all miss her homemade bread! Mom was a member of the Legion, Lions club and a Chartered Member of the Fairmont & District Lions club where she did countless hours of volunteering.
A private graveside service for Myrtle was held at the Fairmont Cemetery at 11 am on Saturday, September 15, 2018. A celebration of her life followed at the Mountainside Golf Course in Fairmont Hot Springs.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
