Obituary of Edmund Brittain Wilson
It is with heavy hearts, but appreciation for a life well-lived that the family of Edmund Brittain Wilson announces that he went home to be with the Lord his saviour. He passed from this life at Bobby’s Hospice on Saturday, July 27, 2019 surrounded by the love of his family. Born in Saint John on October 22, 1930, he was a son of the late Raymond and Margaret (Brittain) Wilson.
Edmund will be missed by his beloved wife Christine (Vodovec) Wilson of 62 years; his children, Kristy Wilson (Wanda), Lori Reid (Bruce) and Lynn Galbraith (Robert); his grandchildren, Lacey (James), Caleigh (Andrew), Julie (Cody), Shawn and Jeremy; great-grandchildren, Kohan, Daliah, Evelyn and Maloa; his sister Ester Ferguson (Clarence); and his cousin and dear friend, Elva Janes and her family.
Family always came first for Edmund, and he cherished the time spent with Christine and their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was a great role-model to them, and made sure they knew how loved they were. He was employed for 38 years with CP Rail as a sales representative, where he made a lasting impression on many people. He had a great sense of humour and a smile that could light up a room. Edmund enjoyed going for long walks, cheering for the Cincinnati Reds, and attending musical jamborees with Christine in Lorneville and Sussex. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.
Edmund’s family wishes to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the staff and volunteers of Bobby’s Hospice for their care during his final days. The love and compassion of these Earth Angels is priceless, and will always be remembered.
