Obituary of Edna Audrey Tabor (Stevenson)

Tabor, Edna Audrey (Stevenson)

On June 28th, 2024, Edna Audrey Tabor (Stevenson) passed away at the Campobello Lodge at the age of 97 years old, peacefully in her sleep. She was born April 27th, 1927, in Camden, Maine, U.S.A, to parents Henry Stevenson and Cassie Estella “Stella” Stevenson (Leavitt).

Edna was full of life and enjoyed every minute. She raised her family on Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada, then moved back to Maine, before settling in Sussex, New Brunswick, Canada. She spent many years living in Sussex where she was a caregiver to many. She was part of the bowling league and her local church. Edna hosted barn dances, enjoyed bingo and skip-bo. She enjoyed travelling, spending time with friends, and a good lobster roll. Edna’s zest for life sent her around the world, on lots of adventures with friends her whole life long.

Edna was predeceased by both of her parents, as well as her siblings Clinton Stevenson, Esther Cole (Stevenson), Franklin Stevenson, Roxine “Rocky” Patterson (Stevenson), Geneva Stevenson, Harold Stevenson, Mildred Babcock (Stevenson). She was also predeceased by Leslie Tabor, her husband, previously by her husband Frederick Leblanc, and former husband Eric Cook, as well as her son, Clinton Cook.

Edna is survived by her daughter, Brenda (John “Russ”) Arnett (Cook), and her son, Gary (Mary) Cook. Also, by her sister-in-law and best friend, Rita Jeffers. Edna is survived also by her grandchildren Richard Slagger, John Arnett, Sherri Hogan (Arnett), Graham (Rhonda) Cook and Dwayne (Nicole) Cook, Heather Cook and Shaun Cook, as well as many great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank to all the staff and community of the Campobello Lodge who cared for Edna so well in the final years of her life. It is a comfort knowing she was always in such caring, capable hands.

There will be a celebration of life to honor Edna to come later.
