When I think of Auntie Edna the picture is painted in colors of the prairie. I so love summer visits to the farm, at first in the homestead house and then the farm house. Those weenie roasts back under the trees always meant Auntie Edna playing her guitar and singing cowboy songs. I learned alot about farm life by just watching Auntie in her garden...tending acres of potatoes and veggies.

She was a horsewoman, mother, wife, painter, rascal and sweet heart to all of us. We will miss you and see you along the trail another day.
