Edna, or Bunny as she was known to many, was a vital community member of Glencoe and area. She volunteered at many places including Four Counties Hospital and she was a very active member of St. John’s Anglican Church. Edna was a master spinner. For many years she owned The Spinning Wheel and the driver’s license bureau having made many great friends through those ventures. Edna and Doug travelled extensively in younger years; always enthused about learning about the people and places they saw. They met many people over those years, several of who remained good friends. Edna came to Canada as a war bride having met Doug while they both worked on radar, serving in the British Air Force. In later years, she became very involved in the War Brides organization and could be seen at events singing, “Till we meet again” with fellow war brides.
