Edna Blanche Dykeman


Edna Blanche Dykeman


It is with heavy hearts that the family of Edna Blanche (Gowan) Dykeman announce her passing at the Saint John Regional Hospital on May 15, 2024. Born in Digdeguash NB on June 8, 1945, she was the daughter of the late Willard and Helen (Harmon) Gowan.

Edna will be deeply missed by her loving husband of 58yrs Robert "Bob" Dykeman; daughter, Dana "Sis" (Pat) Little and son Andrew "Andy" (Daphne) Dykeman; Grandchildren Courtney Little, Nicholas Little, Amy Dykeman, Zachary Dykeman and chosen grandson Andrew Little. Great-grandchildren Scarlett and Bennett; siblings: Phyllis Belliveau, Norval Gowan and Robert Gowan; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Besides her parents, Edna was predeceased by her siblings, Mrytle Frost, Mary Wilcox, Kenneth Gowan, Willard Gowan Jr., Vance Gowan, Lewis Gowan and Clara Rose Gowan.

Prior to retirement, Edna was employed as a Registered Nurse for over 40 years. She had a love for nature and enjoyed many hours in her flower gardens. She enjoyed sewing, quilting, writing and was an avid reader. Edna truly loved her family and spending time with them brought her such joy. Her grandbabies and great grandbabies held a very special place in Grammies’ heart, and she cherished every moment of their time together. Edna was loved by many and will be missed dearly by her family and friends.

Arrangements in the care of the St. George Funeral Home (506-755-3533) 26 Portage Street, St. George NB. In keeping with Edna’s wishes, there will be no visitation. A service will be held at the St. Mark’s Anglican Church, St. George NB on Monday, May 20th at 2:00 pm with Rev. Brent MacDonald officiating, followed by the interment in the Bocabec Community Cemetery. Please join the family afterwards in the hall for "a bite to eat" and share some memories. Donations in her memory may be made to the NB Heart & Stroke Foundation or to the Cancer Society.

Flowers are welcome at the interment, as mom once said she would love to be surrounded by flowers when the Good Lord calls her home.
