Edna was born on March 23, 1956, in Westlock, Alberta and grew up on a farm near Linaria, Alberta. She moved to Edmonton, Alberta where she worked at Crosstown Motors and met her future husband, Edward Novakowski. They were married on April 8, 1978. Soon after Michael and Steven were born and they relocated to Fort Saskatchewan Alberta in the fall of 1980.

Edna loved being around the baseball diamonds, hockey rinks and football fields watching her sons and grandsons. She found enjoyment on the golf course, and traveling with her clogging friends. Edna had a love of flowers and painting. In recent years she challenged herself to learn Turkish. When at home she would enjoy cooking for and spending time with her family.

Sending my sincere condolences to Ed, Michael, Steven and all of her family and friends. Although I have not seen her in a few years, she was always so pleasant and enjoyable to be around, whether it was at the arena enjoying our boys playing hockey together or just to run into her while running errands. Shortly after moving to Fort Sask, back in 1986/87 when my oldest son was just starting grade one at James Mowat, as we left our house on 94th Avenue, she was walking her son Michael to school. We introduced ourselves, walked together to the school and became friends, not close friends but always took the time to chat and catch up when we did run into each other. I am sad that such a wonderful lady has passed and wish that all her love for her family will help each of you through this difficult time.
Sending love, hugs and prayers to all her family.
