Edna passed away at Peace Arch District Hospital on Friday, January 21st, 2011. Edna Youngberg, nee Macfarlane was a seventh generation Ottawa Valley “Scotch”. She was predeceased by brother Cameron and sisters, Ethel and Anne, and survived by brother, Reid Macfarlane. Edna was predeceased by her devoted husband Lorne William Youngberg and her beloved daughter Gail Youngberg. She is survived by her two younger children: Reid and Alexandra; two grand-children, Sean and Cameron McConnell and two great grand-children, Aurora and Edna McConnell. She was born in Turtleford, Saskatchewan, in 1919. Edna enrolled in a business diploma programme in Ontario after grade 13 which she later used in her career as finance manager of payroll and accounts payable in two hospitals. Mum loved to sing and was active in choirs across Quebec, Central Canada, Alberta and Ontario. She was also an accomplished violinist. In each of these communities Mum helped build United Churches, gardened, curled, played bridge, and sat on school boards to make sure her children and others had the best possible chance. Edna and Lorne retired to White Rock in 1979. Edna was soon involved in singing in the United Church choir and making massive pots of soup for church luncheons. She loved gardening year round and was an inveterate garage saler.
