Edna Collingwood Obituary Death- We regret to inform you of the passing of Edna Collingwood, a beloved coach, player, and member who will always have a special place in the hearts of all who had the honour of knowing her. Edna was a beloved and enduring part of our community, a towering figure of fortitude. In addition to having a significant impact, her work as a teacher, coach, and player also demonstrated her steadfast dedication to the growth and welfare of others around her.
Edna’s coaching sessions, which were full of humour, companionship, and, of course, her famous “50 peppers restart if you miss!” are memories that many of us cherish. Her teaching was more than just on the pitch; it was a lesson in fortitude, self-control, and the happiness that comes from playing a sport you love.
Edna’s impact was felt outside of the athletic arena. She taught at Johnsonville Main School with dedication and love for many people in our community. Her dedication to education and her pupils’ welfare created a lasting legacy, and her influence on numerous learning generations will be gratefully acknowledged.
Let’s honour Edna Collingwood’s life while we grieve the passing of a magnificent person. We shall always remember her for her enthusiasm, commitment, and the kindness she showed to everyone she met. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Edna’s family, friends, former teammates, and students. I pray that the good memories of Edna will help us through this trying time, and that her legacy will encourage us to live our lives with the same fervour, tenacity, and compassion that she shown.
Let us continue to uphold the principles that Edna cherished in her honour: to be strong in the face of adversity, to motivate people around us, and to treasure the relationships with friends and neighbours that she so skillfully fostered.
