Obituary of Edna May Pomeroy
February 25th, 1920 – March 2nd, 2019
The family of Edna May Pomeroy (nee Pack, nee Anderson) sadly announce her passing on March 2nd , 2019 at the age of 99 years.
Mom was born in Beaverlodge, AB on February 25th, 1920, the third child to Jim and Winnie Pack. She had two brothers, Vivian and Vergil and 13 years later a sister Tudie. She grew up on the family farm and in 1941 married Ed Anderson. They were blessed with 5 children, 4 girls and finally one boy.
Mom lived her whole life in the north eventually leaving Beaverlodge moving to Dawson Creek and then Fort St. John. Our dad passed away in 1976, and later she married Ralph Pomeroy and had 17 great years with him, until his passing in 1994.
In 2003 she moved to Grande Prairie to be closer to family and was one of the first residents at “The Gardens”. She loved everything about her life at the Gardens and lived there until 2016 when she had to be moved to long term care at Prairie Life Seniors Community where she lived until her passing.
Our Mom was a feisty lady who loved to garden, craft and golf. At the age of 92 she gave up driving and golfing. She took the novelty license plate “I’d Rather be Golfing” off her car and put it on her walker. She was predeceased by her parents, siblings, Dad, Ralph, son Darryl, sons-in-law Burton Moon and Jim Donald.
She is survived by her daughters Ginny Moon, Pat (Ed) Palmer, Sandy Donald, Darlene Anderson, 10 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren, 3 great great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, and her Pomeroy Family.
Cremation has taken place and her wish was to have a family gathering at Riverside Cemetery at Albright, her final resting place beside our Dad and where all of her Pack family is interred starting with her grandparents, when weather permits.
The family wishes to thank the staff at The Gardens for all her years there, the staff at Prairie Life, Dr. Aylward and a very special thank you to Alona Calatan, her loving companion. Also thanks to the amazing staff at Bear Creek Funeral Home.
