Apr 14, 1925 – Jun 7, 2013
With great regret, we announce the passing of our mother, Enid Margaret Colborne (nee Stearns), who received her well-deserved “Angel Wings’ on June 7, 2013 after a short illness. Enid was born in Viking, Alberta, on April 14, 1925. She is predeceased by her parents, Charlie and Millie Stearns, our father Sherman [her husband of 50 years], and by her brother, Vern Stearns. Mom is survived by her three children, Larry (Letta Mae), Marilyn Collison (Bill) and Ron (Tina). She has seven grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren. and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. Her grandchildren, Tim, Donna, Jennifer, Tyson, Shannon, Melinda and Brett, considered themselves the luckiest kids in the world to call her Gramma, and to be loved by her and Grampa. Their house (or motor home, cabin, or wherever) was the scene of much silliness and chaos, with Gramma (or the Sergeant Major as she was referred to by Grampa) in charge, mainly of the silliness.
Next to her family, Mom’s great loves were music, being with Dad in the great outdoors, travelling, community involvement, photography, and later on, painting with oils and acrylics. She shared her musical gift her whole life willingly, as long as she wasn’t in the spotlight.
A memorial service will be held in her honour at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 16, 2013 at the Clearwater Baptist Church with a reception to follow at 3pm in the Wells Gray Inn Banquet Room. The service may be seen online, and condolences sent to the family, at www.NorthThompsonFuneral.com.Print This Obituary & Condolences
