Edna Thorne  passed away after a lenghly illness at the Moncton Hospital on Wednesday January 18, 2023. Born in Moncton, NB she was the youngest daughter of the late Eloi Thibodeau and Marjorie (Millman) Thibodeau.

Edna was a faithful volunteer with the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch # 06 Moncton for over 16 years. I've had people tell me that's a wonderful Sacrifice!
My reply is " The real sacrifice is what our Veteran's made for Canada and the world."

Survived by her daughter, Margaret (Maggie) Thorne of Moncton, NB; son, Shawn Thorne of Moncton; the love of her life, grandchildren, Matthew (Matt) Thorne (Rebecca), Rachel MacLean (Cody); great grandchildren, Myles, Tate and Brooke; sister, Dorothy Wallace (late Peter) of Toronto, ON; along with several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents she was predeceased by her sisters, Ruth Sabourin and Helen Billings; brothers, Lee, Everett, Francis (Dolly) and Ted Thibodeau.

The family would like to extend a warm thank -you to the staff at Moncton Residence (CentennialUnit) and the staff of 4100 and also 3600 at the Moncton Hospital, your kindness will not be forgotten.

Miss me but let me go
"When i see the end of my road, and the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom-filled room. Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little- but not too long, and not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared. Miss me but let me go. For this is a journey that we all must take and each must go alone.
It's a part of the master plan, a step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick at heart go to the friends we know, and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss me but let me go" -author unknown

In honor of Edna cremation has taken place and there will not be any visitation or funeral service held.
