In celebration of Edith Rose Shelton (nee Joiner)
With a sense of sadness our family announces that Edith Shelton peacefully passed on Monday November 6, 2017, at the age of 83.
She will be dearly missed by her beloved husband of 56 years Charlie, and her children Roger, Kim (Brent), Warren (Cathy), Eddie (Lucinda) and Chris (Marcia). We cherished and dearly loved our Mom and her fun-loving, adventurous, wonderfully good natured spirit. Her love for the ‘church’ of Timmie’s remains with all.
Gammie’s ten amazing grandchildren, Jesse, Jack, Colin, Jared, Ella, Chloe, Josh, Maxx, Hayden and Caitlyn, all brought such light and love to her life and she adored each and everyone of them. She enjoyed cheerleading at their sports games, recitals, teaching crafts, and chauffeuring them around.
She was the dear sister-in-law of Elizabeth Joiner, Maria Joiner and Willard Long. Edith was predeceased by her parents Clara and Edward Joiner, her brothers George and John Joiner, sister-in-law Mary Long, Joan Shelton, and brother in law J. Roger Shelton.
Aunt Edith will be missed by her nieces and nephews and cousins. She was a wonderful friend to many.
Edy, as she was known and loved, had a big kind heart and was probably the kindest, most forgiving person most people have ever had the pleasure to meet. She was vibrant, adventurous, liked to laugh and was always young at heart. She travelled to Tokyo, Japan in her 60’s, Scotland and then Australia in her 70’s on her own to see her son. Edy was a crafty lady, literally. A teacher of crafts in Woodstock, she quilted, crocheted, painted and made creative dolls amongst many other things… the list was long. She could whip up a stew out of what was left in the fridge to feed the family and several farmhands, she volunteered as a Brownie leader, 4H leader and with figure skating clubs and was ‘Mom’s taxi’.
A Celebration of Life honouring Edith will be held for family and friends on Sunday November 12, 2017 at the Elmhurst Inn, 415 Harris Street., Ingersoll, Ontario, from 1:30 to 5pm with an informal service beginning at 2:30 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, if desired, donations to the VON Adult Day Program of Oxford, or any charity that supports children would be pleasing to Edy. Your messages of condolence may be shared at www.wareingcremation.ca
