As we lay Aunt Edna to rest today, I feel so blessed to have known her. She was such a classy lady and hostess with the mostest! She loved her social activities and always kept on the go, (maybe that’s how you make it to 101). Most importantly, she loved our Lord and Savior, and her family. Mom, Connie, and I visited her often when she was a resident at One Lincoln Park, and she always wanted us to stay a little longer. We never left without an “I love you” and “God bless you”. I visualize the reunion in heaven with Mama and Papa, her siblings, and others dear to her! Now she is truly in her forever home (I would have said at rest, but she’s probably still on the go)! Rest In Peace, Aunt Edna. You will always have a special place in my heart! ❤️

Aunt Edna will be missed so much at our family gatherings. Family meant so much to her and she enjoyed all the people, food & picture taking. We always enjoyed visiting her when she lived at One Lincoln Park. She always wanted you to stay a little longer & would invite you to come back soon. She always ended our visits with a blessing. We are so thankful for the fond memories. Rest in peace, Aunt Edna!

So many of the conversations with my mother-in-law started with me thanking her for having my husband Jack (John). As I tell our boys, Josiah (13 years) and Elijah (10 years), without her they wouldn't be here. Edna was part of our lives, their Sunday call with their Grandmother, and she always told them to be good, sent her blessings, and that she loved them. I am grateful to Edna for being there for my family, for answering my calls and telling me stories about Jack. We are going to miss her but know that she is now with our Lord. Thank you Edna for being part of the reason I have a family and able to be a mother... one last time.

Mom,
Thank you for the countrywide vacations, financial help, thank you for refusing to let me pay you back.
Thank you for Noodles from scratch, Fried Chicken, Chocolate Pie and Sunday Pancakes.
Thank You for using Bactine and needles to take out splinters
Thank you for telling me to use my Gumption
Thank You for telling me I can be anything I put my mind to
and most of all
thank you for telling me to never, ever, give up.

Aunt Enda was always the hostess with the mostest. She always made everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. You never left her home hungry. I have tons of favorite memories with my aunt Enda and my Uncle Tom, as my Mom & Dad, Lula & Al Kingery were absolutely best friends and inseparable. From Dayton to California our families were always together and celebrated life and all the events in-between, together. One characteristic item we all know to be true, is our Aunt Enda always dressed for success. She was beautiful, smart and wonderful!

God knows all of those Phillip kids and their spouses and God has made heaven for them & us to rejoice in being together once again! Rest In Peace and rejoice in Heaven Aunt Enda, until we all
are together once again!

We are so sad to hear of Aunt Edna's passing. She was always so fun to visit with when we were nearby and amazing how active she always was. I hope if we make it to her age we can be half that energetic and always dressed beautifully and put together...RIP Aunt Edna,
Lynn and John
