In loving memory of Edna Eileen Widdifield (nee McFarlane), 89 years.

As the bagpipes played on, Edna peacefully passed on Sunday, January 10th, 2021 at Pioneer Manor in Sudbury.

Beloved wife of Lloyd Widdifield predeceased. Loving mother of Ken Widdifield, Debbie Clancy (Paul) and Susan Betts (Ryan). Cherished grandmother to Peter (Melanie), Jeffrey (Catherine), Emily, Shannon, Andrew, Kelly, Marissa, Courtland (Casia), and great-grandmother to Paige, Ryan, and Eliana. She was also Dear Aunt Edna to numerous nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by her parents, Alexander and Ella (nee Surtees) McFarlane, brother Ivan (Beatrice), and sister Dorothy Ryan (Gerard). Survived by her brother Randal (Jean predeceased).

Edna was born and raised in Charlton, Ontario where she met and married Lloyd. They eventually settled in Temagami. Following the untimely death of her husband, Edna remained in Temagami to raise their young family. Her strong community spirit kept her actively involved in many community groups and associations such as the Royal Canadian Legion, United Church, and the Seniors Group, until she moved to Pioneer Manor in Sudbury in 2014.

Blessed with an amazing green thumb, Edna took advantage of every opportunity and space to cultivate and nurture additional plants and flowers both inside and outside her home. She could generally be found toiling in her beautiful flower gardens. Her door and home were always open where a pot of tea plus plentiful baked goods were offered when anyone dropped by for a visit.

As cremation has already occurred, a celebration of life will take place at a later date. Following the celebration, Edna will be placed to rest with her late husband Lloyd in Charlton.

In lieu of donations, it would be appreciated if family and friends keep Edna’s gardening legacy alive by supporting local nurseries to help create a lasting memory of Edna in their own gardens by planting trees, perennial flowering plants or a garden structure. Arrangements entrusted to the Jackson & Barnard Funeral Home. For messages of condolence

So sad to hear of the passing of Edna. She was such a nice lady.
We lived on the same street as her in Temagami and when she was out walking she would always take the time to stop and chat. She always kept her place immaculate and her flower gardens were always beautiful.
Our condolences to the family for the loss of their mom.

To Edna's family. I had the joy and pleasure of knowing Edna when I worked in Temagami in the 1980's, and learning of her family connections in Charlton. She had such a deep faith, a wonderful sense of humour, and calming presence. I am so sure that she will be missed, but remembered fondly by all who knew her.
