Brown, Edna Lillian.
May 3, 1934 – November 9, 2021.
It is with profound sadness that the Brown family announces the passing of Edna Brown (née Stockdale), wife of Archie Brown at the age of 87.
Born and raised in Toronto to Emily and George Stockdale, Edna was the youngest and sibling to brother George and sister Joan. Her beloved father passed at an early age and Edna joined the work force to help support her family.
Edna met Archie Brown while working at Frigidaire. They tied the knot at age 21 and enjoyed an incredible love story for the next 66 years. Together they raised three daughters; Barbara, Karen and Patricia and were thrilled to have the love of ten grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
As a young girl, she attended Sunday school, became a CGIT member and ultimately a CGIT leader. Edna was an incredible wife and mother. She built longstanding friendships. You could always count on a lovely card in the mail, sage advice for any problem, help with homework, a ride in the rain and an absolutely perfect home. Loving, kind, interested and curious she was ever ready to help. Edna always minimized her chronic pain with grace and focused on supporting others. Preferring to always stay in the background, she would walk into any room, notice how she could help, and spring into action. Her smile, intelligence, kind heart and caring ways will be enormously missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
