Edna was employed by the Buckeye Overall company in her early years and was a hard working farmwife for most of her life. She was an avid Bingo player and supported Immaculate Conception bingo for many decades. She also loved her little gambling trips. She was so proud of her family and kept everyone well fed with all her delicious fried chicken, 24 day pickles, awesome pies and the hundreds of Christmas cookies she made every year.
Edna will always be remembered as the most loving and caring wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandma and great grandma. She had an infectious laugh and a great sense of humor.
She will truly be missed and will always be a legend in her family!
