HOWARD Edna (Nee Wicks) Former Owner of Edna's Fish Shop, Stonehouse Street, Middlesbrough. Peacefully whilst at home on January 23, surrounded by her loving family, Edna aged 77 years. Dearly loved wife of the late Norman, loving mother of John, Norman, Kenneth and Theresa, also a dear motherinlaw, cherished nana and greatnana. Requiem Mass to take place on Wednesday, February 1 at 10.30am in the R.C. Church of Sacred Heart prior to interment within Thorntree R.C. Cemetery. Friends please meet at Church and afterwards at the Dormans Club. All welcome. Resting at home from Monday.

HOWARD Edna (Mam) No matter where I go, No matter what I do, You will be within my heart, My whole life through. You told me I had to be strong, And that's what I shall do, You closed your eyes, It broke my heart, That's when I knew we had to part.

I have lost my Mam, And very best friend, How dearly I loved her, right to the end. Now at rest Mam, Free from pain, Back in Dad's arms, Together again. Rest in peace, eternal rest.

Love from your brokenhearted Daughter Theresa and Soninlaw John. xx HOWARD Edna (Mam) There's something missing in my life, Something wonderful and true, It will always be missing Mam, Now that I don't have you.

No treasure on earth will replace you, Your memory will never grow old, I miss you mam and always will, You were more precious than gold. If every prayer was answered, And every dream come true, I would ask for nothing Mam, I only wanted you. Reunited with Dad. From your Big Lad John and granddaughter Charlotte. x HOWARD Edna (Mam) I'll always love my mam, she's my favourite girl, I'll always love my mam, she brought me into this world. Sometimes I feel so sad, when I think of all the things we used to do, how mam, would work all God's hours, just to buy us all new shoes. I never understood how my Mam made it through the week because she never, ever got a good nights sleep. I'm talking about my Mam, she's one of a kind. My heart belongs to you because a Mother's love is so special, it's something you can't describe. It's the kind of love that will stay with me, until the day I die. Goodnight, God bless. Your heart broken Son Norman and Mandy. xx HOWARD Edna Mam, writing these words is the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life. You were the best Mam anyone could wish for, a proper Lady and a lovely person. You never called anyone and were the first to stick up for everyone. When you were ill you never once complained, always saying, I'm fine but that was you Mam, but now we know how bad you really were. They say you go to a Better place but your place is here with us Mam. You have left the biggest hole in my life that can never be filled. I am a broken man, now that you have gone, but you will be with me wherever I go because you will always be in my heart. So until we meet again, my lovely precious Mam. Goodnight and God bless. Your brokenhearted son Kenneth.

In God's care you sleep above, In our hearts you stay with love.

Son Kenneth and Charisse. xxxx HOWARD Edna (Nana) You were our Nana, Who had a heart of gold, Our memories of you will never grown old. A beautiful memory dearer than gold, Of a Nana whose worth can never be told. There's a place in our hearts noone can fill, We miss you Nana and always will.

Rest in peace Nana. Love, Granddaughter Leonora and Grandson Kasey. xx HOWARD Edna (Nana) What she suffered she told but few, She did not deserve what she went through.

Tired and weary, she made no fuss But tried so hard to stay with us.

A loving Nana most sincere, Loved by all she knew, She loved us all so very dear, And we all loved her too.

But God in His mercy, Will give us hope, And help us bear the strain, Of the Nana we cherished, loved and lost, To meet in Heaven again.

Love you always and forever. Your Grandson John Ronald, Zoe and Eva. xxx HOWARD Edna (Nana) A light from our family is gone, A voice we loved is stilled, A place is vacant in the home, Which never can nor will be filled. …
