Edwina Lewis


The family of Edwina Lewis is heartbroken to announce her peaceful passing on the afternoon of November 3rd after a courageous battle from pancreatic cancer.


Edwina is lovingly remembered and missed dearly by her devoted husband of 37 years, Herman Lewis; and their immediate family Amy Lewis (Tyler Samoleski), Jake Lewis (Treena Lewis) and their loving grandchildren Jamison & Lachlan Samoleski and Aaliyah Lewis.  Edwina will be sadly missed by her sisters: Ann (Robin) Whitehouse, Linda Pyle, Dawn Ellard; brother-in-law John Smith; and nieces, nephews and friends.


Edwina was predeceased by her parents Doris (Larry) Burgess, sister Elaine Smith and mother-in-law Jessie Pocha.


Edwina lived a life full of adventure, laughter and brightened any room she walked into. All who knew her will remember her laugh and her witty comments and she reminded people around her that life is for the living so get on with it then.

Edwina was born in Troon, Scotland on December 16th, 1956 and after travelling through England and Europe her travels brought her to Calgary, Alberta where she was a nanny for many families and where she ultimately met Herman. They traveled back to England with their young family but ended up settling back on the farm in Saskatchewan where they raised their two children Amy and Jake.


The family would like to give a heartfelt thank-you to the Prince Albert Home Care and palliative teams for taking care of Edwina in her final days. Edwina did not want a funeral but the family will host a gathering next summer to say our final farewell, please email redpinebb@gmail.com to correspond for details next summer.


Condolences may be sent to the family at www.grays.ca.  Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Gray's Funeral Chapel, (306) 922-4729.
