Edith Mae Winter, 79, of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho passed away December 10, 2016. Edith was born on June 5, 1937 in Fort William, Ontario, Canada to Walter and Mary (Buchanan) Hunt. Edith spent her childhood years in Fort William before attending McGill University in Montreal, Quebec to obtain her physiotherapy degree and work as a physical therapist. It was while attending the university that she met the love of her life, Richard Winter. They were married on April 5, 1958 in Fort William and enjoyed 58 years of marriage.
The day Edith and Dick got married, they moved to the United States and have lived in many places: Michigan, California, and Idaho. It was while driving through Coeur d' Alene on one of their many trips, that they decided it would be a good place to set down roots. That was in 2001. Before settling in Coeur d'Alene, however, they spent 1 1/2 years traveling around the US and Canada in their fifth wheel RV.
Edith had a passion for reading and murder mysteries were her favorite. She enjoyed traveling as well. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
Edith is survived by her husband, Dick; son, Scott (Tamra) of Butte, Montana; daughter, Sue (Michael) Brook of Windsor, California; son, Robert of Rocklin, California; and three granddaughters: Devon, Zoe, and Baley.
A memorial gathering is planned for 1 PM on Friday, June 23, 2017 at the family home with a bagpiper present to play two special songs.
