My heartfelt condolences to her loved ones. My best friend Edna will be much much missed but I know she is one happy lady forevermore and into eternity being with our Lord who loves us so much we can’t comprehend such love. Edna was like an older sister who brought me into her circle of friends and activities. She was my angel who rescued me. The more I tried to return her kindness and care the more it seemed she gave back. My best friend is with Jesus; May she Rest In Peace.

Edna will be sorely missed by all that were blessed to have known her. She was a sweet friend and like a second mother. Growing up with Tina, I have so many memories over the past 50 years. Edna loved her Houston sports. If there a game on, it was being broadcast in the house! Edna, Gene and Ricky can cheer Houston on, together, from the best seats in the house!
Rest in Peace.

Edna was a dear friend and will be missed. We had a lot of fun playing cards, going to the casino and on numerous trips. She was a great cook and always willing to help out. Good memories🌺Frances
