On Thursday, June 8, 2006 at 1:10 pm surrounded by her family and friend, the world lost a truly amazing person. After a long and courageous battle with respiratory problems at Surrey Memorial Hospital Edna Lee (69) lost her fight. Born on April 24, 1937 in Leask, Saskatchewan to Liliane and Julien Tremblay, the family moved to Vancouver when she was 5. She was “Mom” to many people and always a very special friend to all. Mom was involved with Scout’s Canada and Girl Guides of Canada for many years, and always enjoyed being with all the kids. Mom was an employee of Surrey School District #36 and loved working with all the youth in the teaching kitchens at Frank Hurt and Princess Margaret Schools. She touched a lot of lives in her 69 years with us, and influennced many people. She would give you the clothes off her back, if she thought that it would help you. Mom will be missed dearly by her adoring family Teresa (Dan)Bridgeman, Raymond (JoAnn) Lee, Cindy Lee, Grandsons Alexander and Matthew Bridgeman, Sister Sharon (Ian) Colquhoun, Nieces Sherry (Cameron) McPherson, Heather (Phil) Kwok, Linda (Glen) Mackie, Great Nieces and Nephews Allycia and Ashley McPherson, Devon, Allyssa, and Katelynn Mackie, Shelby and Wesley Kwok, and many special longtime neighbors and friends. A very grateful thank you from the family to Mrs Diane Berger, a very special and dear friend to mom, and who was there at her bedside with the family, to help her start her new journey. Grateful thanks also to all the Staff of Surrey Memorial Hospital. You kept her comfortable, kept her dignity intact, and your incredible compassion and caring will always be remembered. Also a great deal of thanks to all her wonderful doctors during this ordeal. Dr. Herbert Wong – G. P. Dr. Ed Lawson – Respirologist, Dr. Henry Wong – Internist – Dr. K. Lai – Surgeon, Dr. Peter Tan – Cardiologist. In lieu of flowers, donations in Mom’s name can be made to the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation, 13750 – 96 Avenue, Surrey, BC V3V 1Z2 or call 604-588-3371.
