Obituary for Edna Devine (Creese)

The family of Edna May Devine, age 98, sadly announce her peaceful passing on February 16, 2019, at Southbridge Pinewood. Born in Cupar, Saskatchewan, March 30, 1920, Edna May Creese married Leonard Joseph Devine in 1942, then moved to Stevens, Ontario, and later to Caramat where they raised their two children.
Thunder Bay became home when Len retired, and where they devoted all their time to their grandchildren, gardening, crafts, cooking, and St. Dominic’s church. Edna always had a special place in her heart for the many priests she encountered, the last being Father Dan. Family and friends were of the utmost importance to her, and there was always a cup of tea to be shared, a pair of socks or a sweater to be given, or a new friend to be made.
The predeceased include her husband Len, son Richard Devine, and siblings Winnie, Helen, Dick, Alan, and Gladys. Surviving family include her daughter Teresa Kukkee (Edwin), grandchildren Jennie Degagne (Dwayne), Richard Kukkee, and Heather Gilbert, along with six great-grandchildren: Laine and Tucker Degagne, Sydni and Griffin Kukkee, and Jack and Trent Gilbert.
Edna was most pleased with the excellent and special care she received from her doctors over the years, noteably Dr. C. Allison, Dr. H. Baunemann, and recently Dr. Ruby Klassen, with much gratitude to the staff of Pinewood Court for their kindness and compassion. A special thankyou is offered to sister-in-law Amy Creese, niece Joan Dutli, and to those many
nieces and nephews, friends, and extended family who provided much support in the form of visitations, flowers, cards, and phone calls.
As per Edna’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family interment will follow at a later date.

We were so saddened to read of Edna's passing. We held her in high esteem. Our brother and uncle passed away in May of 2018. He was also a resident of Sandpiper (Pinewood Court) and during his last months Edna's companionship was so important to him. Their sitting side by side, holding hands, sharing a meal, and the smiles we knew meant so much to both of them. Please accept our sincere condolences and know your loved one was loved not only by Walter but by my daughter and myself. God Bless Joyce Matis

I am so sorry for your loss, and would like to express my sincerest condolences. Edna lived a happy life with her family surrounding her. May it be of comfort to you to know that she is in God's memory. Our Heavenly Father hates to see his loving children die, that is why he has promised to eliminate death, our ultimate enemy. He promises to call them back to life and enjoy along with you a life in a world that will be full of peace and happiness. (1 Corinthians 15:26; Job 14:15 Revelation 21:3,4)
