Edna Archibald passed away on Friday, August 23, 2013 at the age of 84. She was born in Raymore, SK on November 24, 1928 and grew up on her parents' farm northeast of Naicam, SK. She married Alex Archibald on November 23, 1951 and together they built their family farm east of Naicam. She moved into her house in Naicam in the early 90's where she continued to live independently until her death this past Friday. Edna was an avid sports enthusiast. She especially loved playing softball and curling, but later in life developed a love for whatever sport her grandchildren were involved in. She most definitely was their biggest fan! She spent many enjoyable hours working in her flower and vegetable gardens. She loved to spend time with her family & friends socializing, "bonspieling", playing cards, and travelling, or just having a visit over coffee with her 'always on hand' fresh baking. Mom made time for everyone. Edna leaves to mourn four children, seven grandchildren and three great- grandchildren. Son, Lorne (Carol) Archibald, grandsons Sean (Candice), Brent (Marci) great-granddaughter Abigale, daughter Cheryl (Jack) Ramler, grandsons Dale (Anne) great-grandson Meritt, Steven (Michelle) great-grandson Alex, Scott (Ashley), son Brian (Valinda) Archibald, daughter Lori (Ben) Garchinski, grandson Jason and granddaughter Lindsay. She was predeceased by her husband Alex and her parents Emery and Mabel Mason. The Celebration of Edna's Life will be held at The Five Oaks Church in Naicam on Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. Internment at the Naicam Town Cemetery, with lunch to follow at the Naicam Hall. Donations can be made in Edna's name to the MS Society or the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan.
