Davie, Edith

With great sadness we announce the passing of Edith Ferguson (Donald) Davie in her 98th year on Monday, March 19, 2018 with family by her side at Twin Lakes Terrace. Born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland Edith came to Canada at the age of 7.  She was raised in Toronto and worked at the Ministry of Health. In 1948 she married her late husband, Peter (1995) and moved to Sarnia where they raised three sons. Edith went on to become an elementary teacher at Oakwood, Clarke and Parkview schools. After retiring she continued her education going on to obtain her B.A. at the age of 77. She was a Charter Member of Dunlop United Church (1951), where she enjoyed being a CGIT  leader.  A member of the United Church Women since it's inception, she received a lifetime membership in 2002. Edith was a proud, inspiring and involved Grandmother who reveled in each and every one of her grandchildren's accomplishments and successes, encouraging them in each pursuit and endeavour.  She was a Special "Gramma D" to several grandchildren and great-grandchildren who will dearly miss her. Edith was feisty and always eager to let her thoughts be known with her unique and quirky sense of humour, which she would often express to those around her and she continued to share her unbridled wit and wisdom with the caring staff and residents at Twin Lakes. The exemplary care provided by the Oakwood Staff over the last four years did not go unnoticed and was extremely appreciated resulting in many great memories for her family. Her honesty, spunk and simplistic lifestyle were virtues many could be inspired by. Survived by sons Bruce (Sheree), Bob (JoAnn) and Bill (Linda), grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Edith will be deeply missed by all those who knew her and our lives will not be the same with her absence. Cremation, a private family service and interment have taken place. Remembrances and condolences may be expressed to the family online in “Edith’s Guestbook” at As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Mindful Music Program of the Alzheimer’s Society would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to McCormack Funeral Home – Stewart Chapel, Sarnia.

Dear Bruce, Bob, Bill and families I have many happy memories of visiting your mother and father at their home in Sarnia with my late husband and your cousin, Ric. Auntie Ede was truly an energetic and compassionate woman. I loved listening to her stories about teaching. Her passion for her profession was evident and her caring for her pupils was palpable. I can only imagine how deeply felt your loss must be. Please know that my thoughts are with you at this sad time. Sincerely, Susan Sadler (also known as Ric's Sue)

Susan Sadler

"Auntie Ede" will be lovingly remembered. She shared her life in detailed correspondence for many years and her family was her pride and joy. Her enthusiasm for life was contagious. May she rest in peace.
