Also left to mourn her passing are Eda’s younger siblings Ezio (Sophie) Gardin, and Maxine Richards, along with many loving nieces and nephews.

Eda was predeceased by her parents Gemma and Silvio Gardin; brother-in-law Owen Richards and sisters-in-law Marjorie Pontarolo, and Jolayne Van Der Hulst.

A Private Memorial Service will be held at 3:30pm on Friday, September 25, 2020.
