Florence Mckee

September 12, 1924 - July 8, 2015


Born in Barnston, County of Stanstead, Quebec

Edna passed away quietly at home, as was her wish.  Predeceased by her husband Clifford in 1996.

Edna will be missed by her friends Mary and Margaret, her tea party partners, her Rosewood family, and many others.  All who knew her, embraced her quiet presence, quick wit, mischievous twinkle, incredibly warm smile, and her delight in giving and receiving a hug.

Thanks to Dr. Booth, Dr Masuda, and the Home Care Nurses, for their care and guidance.

Special thanks to Joseph (Edna’s knight in shining armour), his co-workers, and to Edna’s Team (Sabine, Kelly, Bette, Emilie, and Jane), whom she graciously accepted  to care for her, maintaining her comfort and dignity, with love.



When the world is all at odds

And the mind is all at sea

Then cease the useless tedium

And brew a cup of tea.

There is magic in its fragrance

There is solace in its taste

And the laden moments vanish

Somehow into space.

And the world becomes a lovely thing

There’s beauty as you’ll see

All because you briefly stopped

To brew a cup of tea.


We will take a moment, Edna, to enjoy a cup of tea, brewed in a Brown Betty (if possible), in a proper china cup, in remembrance of you!

No service by request.  Donations maybe made, in memory, to the Cowichan Valley SPCA.

Edna’s remains will be sent for burial in the McKee Family Plot in Danville, Quebec.
