It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Merle Ghaney on December 20, 2021 at the age of 78.
Born in Virden, Manitoba to a CPR railroad family, Merle met her future love Ed Ghaney, a Canadian Armed Forces member in Brandon Manitoba. They were married in September 1964 and moved to military bases all over western Canada, eventually settling in Edmonton Alberta. Ed and Merle were married for over 55 years before she lost Ed on January 1, 2021.
Merle was a champion of the Moose Lodge and was a member of the Edmonton Chapter for over 30 years, helping to fundraise for various groups including the Cross Cancer Center where she was being treated.
Left to cherish her memory are her loving sons Glenn (Donna) and Gary; sisters Donna (John) and Dorothy as well as numerous nephews, nieces, cousins, and many dear friends.
She was predeceased by brothers, Morris, Jock, Ray, Wayne and sister Shirley.
In lieu of flowers please donate to your favorite charity.
A celebration of life will be held later in the spring.
