Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family of Susan Edwards (nee Hildebrand), age 94, announce her peaceful passing on Sunday, September 4, 2022 at the Meadows – House 17, Swift Current, SK.

Susanna “Susan” Edwards was born was born March 23, 1928 to Peter F. & Margaret Hildebrand on the family farm near Gouldtown, SK — the fourth of eleven children.

Susan took up nursing before graduation from formal education was enforced. She was an excellent practical nurse and did that until she married the love of her life, Kenneth Francis Edwards, in 1949. Together, they raised four children. Her nursing skills served her well for the remainder of her life as she was forever patching up and curing those she cared for.  

Susan was an avid gardener, lover of nature, seamstress, quilter, and baker. Quilts were hand-made for all her children and grandchildren. The quilts for her great-grandchildren were in the process, but unfortunately, weren’t completed. Susan loved her large garden and always shared the bounty of food it produced. She doted on and spoiled the birds in her yard. She was famous for always handing out her delicious baked goods.

After her children left home, Susan took an upholstering course and received her certificate. For years, she reupholstered furniture and vehicles (in her spare time), giving them all an elegant and tailored look. Susan was a talented woman with a zest for life and a force to be reckoned with up until the day she passed.

She enjoyed the company of others — from the very young to the very old — and was generous to a fault. Susan loved her family with all her heart and they meant absolutely everything to her. Susan will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Susan is survived by her four children, Scott Edwards (Roseanne Kirkpatrick), Dwight Edwards (Jo-Anne Maslaniec), Phyllis Edwards-Hewitt, and Colleen Edwards; her eight grandchildren, Nicole, Gene, Jason, Sean, Christina, Simon, Kyla, and Melanie; her nine great-grandchildren; her six great-great-grandchildren; her sisters, Helen Wiebe, Anne Trowbridge, and Martha Jacobson; her sister-in-law, Doris Keasey; and by numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.

Susan was predeceased by her husband of 70 years, Ken Edwards, in 2019; and by her siblings, Agenetha, Margaretha, Peter, Henry, John, Isaac, and Fred.

The Graveside Service for Susan Edwards was held on Thursday, September 8, 2022 at 10:00 am at the Herbert Cemetery, Herbert, SK with Pastor Donovan Epp officiating. The family tribute was given by her son, Scott. Susan’s family served as Pallbearers. The service card can be viewed below.
