Our family helping your family since 1908 - Generations of Excellence


Madeleine Leeder-Cole



It is with loving hearts the Leeder family wish to announce the peaceful passing of their Mom. She will be forever loved and remembered by her children, Janet, Joanne (Mike), Richard (Mary-Jane), Marilyn (Denny), Alyson, Valerie (Allan), and MaryAnne (Torr). Also sharing in their loss are 17 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; one surviving sister Bernie; and many relatives and friends.

Mom was predeceased by her loving husband Dr. James Leeder; parents, Alphonse and Alice; and sister Joyce. Also predeceased and very significant in her life were her step father Bill Lumsden; and second husband Terry Cole.

Mom will be remembered for her wit and humor, her positive outlook on life and her great love of family and friends. She had a special gift to put a smile on the faces of everyone around her. Her deep faith and belief in the power of prayer gave her strength and courage to face lifeís challenges. Mom graduated from nursing in 1948. The Edmonton General Hospital will always hold special memories for the family as mom spent her nursing career there as well as giving birth to 6 of her 7 children. Her life came full circle as she spent her final years residing in that same hospital, now known as the Edmonton General Continuing Care Centre.

The family expresses our deepest thanks and gratitude to the many staff and volunteers for the outstanding care and compassion they provided physically and spiritually to Mom during her time there.

A Celebration of Madeleineís Life will be held Saturday, July 7, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 10011-114 Street NW, Edmonton. A private family interment will take place where Momís ashes will be placed with Dadís.

Memorial donations in memory of Madeleine may be made to the Alberta Diabetes Foundation, Alberta Cancer Foundation, or to the Hope Mission.

In Loving Memory of
Madeleine Leeder-Cole
(Maiden: Croisetiere)
