Edna Schornagel (nee Prosser)

Schornagel, Edna (nee Prosser) 88 years.

August 21, 1924- December 31, 2012

It is with a sad heart we announce the death of our beloved mother/wife Edna, who passed away peacefully at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital with her family by her side. Edna is survived by Tommy, the love of her life and dedicated husband of 67 years. Beloved mother of 2 Sons: Idris (Krys), Saskatoon,SK, David (Sharron) Cranbrook, BC; proud grandma of Nicole (Trevor) Thoms, Dustin (Milly), Jordan, Mike Siwy, Jodi (Brian) Gardner, Idris, great-grandma of Idris and Isaias, and a very close and dear friend Kay Kumorek, predeceased by her parents Thomas and Gertrude Prosser, sisters Megan (Edgar) Hutchinson and Nan (Bill) Morgan, and survived by brother Idris, all from South Wales. Edna will also be sadly missed by numerous nieces and nephews.

Edna met her future husband Tommy while he was in England with the army during the Second World War, and subsequently came out to Trail as a war bride in 1946. She never complained, maintaining a brave and cheerful outlook of an optimistic future. Edna loved Canada but always had a soft spot in her heart for Wales.

Edna was devoted to her family, in whose activities and accomplishments she took great pride and interest. Fondly we will remember the million pounds of cookies she indulged us with and her visits never went by without having a little money tucked into our pockets. Her generosity was always appreciated. Always happy to visit with relatives, solving crossword puzzles, knitting, playing cards and winning were her favourite pastimes. Edna maintained her quirky, loveable sense of humour until she died. Her spirit lives within each of us, forever in our hearts.

Those who have a Mother,

Cherish her with care,

For you never know the heartache,

Till you see her vacant chair.

A special thank you to Dr. L. Phillips for his support, home visits, dedication, and compassion. Thank you to all the nurses and staff of the 2nd Floor, Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital for making Mom’s last days bearable. Your patience, care and kindness are appreciated.
