Edmée found team-building and motivating her staff as crucial in the health care industry, and she prided herself in being an excellent communicator, collaborator and a visionary leader. Edmée was a lifelong learner, continuing to attend the University of Saskatchewan and SIAST as an adult learner. She was known as being a hard worker, well known for her integrity and placing the focus on satisfying both internal and external clients/customers and patients. Outside of her work days, Edmée was also a member of the Alzheimer’s Association of Saskatchewan in the 1980’s; the Gerontology Association of Saskatchewan , the Palliative Care Association, the Community Development Society of Saskatchewan; the Interhospital Domestic Violence Committee; the Rolling Hills District Health Board (1993-94); the Swift Current District Health Board (1993-94); The Hub Youth Centre Board (2009-11); an organizing member of the Family Life Education Cooperative (1980) and Brownies/Girl Guides of Canada (1978).
