I am friends with Edna’s daughter, Peggy. I used to live in Roland, IA. Edna was always so kind and caring whenever I went to the both the farm home, and the home in Ames. Peggy and I have remained close for about 35 years. I know how much she loved and cared for her mother — even from far away Florida. They were both fortunate to have this closeness.. Edna will be missed by her family. My deepest sympathy to all.
