Edith Flora McCallum October 7, 1921 – March 6, 2018 Edith passed away after a brief illness at the Hawkesbury General Hospital. Daughter of the late Neil McCallum and Annie Swail McCallum of Grenville-sur-la-Rouge. She was predeceased by her sister Isabel in 2014. Mourned by her dear friends Mr. and Mrs. Michael Bennett and family, countless cousins and good friends. Edith graduated as a teacher in 1939 and spent the rest of her working life in the classroom. She taught at a number of local schools, spent 15 years teaching in Gatineau and then returned home to a teaching job in Harrington. She continued to teach in Harrington until her retirement in 1982. She followed the progress of many of her students throughout the years and her concern for their wellbeing was genuine. She was most proud of the fact that many of her students still took the time to write or visit her. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Desforges Funeral Home, 188 rue Principale, Grenville, QC - (819) 242-2113. At Edith’s request, there will be no visitation or funeral.
