Edna will always be remembered as the matriarch of the family. Both she and her husband Robert were always so giving, and would do anything for anybody. She and Robert were joined at the hip, and faced many challenges together, all of which they overcame. She adored her family, and was well loved in return. She was also the one to initiate all of the in-laws into the family. She was assertive, determined, and she did everything on her own time. Edna will also be remembered for her love of Law & Order, Family Feud, car racing, bingo, trips to Florida and Nashville, country music, and long drives. The family of Edna would also like to extend a special thank you to Adenike Ajayi. Edna will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
