I worked with Edna many years on Main C. I remember her as such a kind and sweet person. She was cool in the heat of the moment. She was a joy to work with and we shared many laughs. My sincere condolences for your loss. May your wonderful memories bring you comfort during these difficult times.

Edna was a really good person and whenever I talked to her I was always in a positive environment. She made me laugh and if I had any problems she would always listen and try to help. I know my Mom, Edna's sister, Shy, loved her very much and I imagine that they are together in Heaven now with their Mom, Elizabeth.

I worked with Edna for many years and so enjoyed her kindness to all of us and to the patients. She loved her family and her pride showed as she told us all about her husband and daughters. Also she had a fine sense of humor that exhibited itself when you least expected it. My sympathy to all of you.

Don and family,
I had the pleasure of working with Edna at MRH Dialysis Center. She was the most hard working, patient, & caring lady I have ever known. She never spoke badly of anyone, and it was refreshing to spend time with her. I've missed her since retiring, but we had lunch to catch up every year. I know you will miss her smile as I do, and I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

I've heard so many stories about Edna that I almost feel as if I knew her. I know that heaven gained a woman who loved her family, and whose family loved her. She will be missed by many.

To all her family and friends, my sincere condolences.

I didn’t have an opportunity to meet you but I know your daughter well. She shared stories about you at work. She was a huge asset on my Marketing and Enrollment team. You raised a beautiful, kind, caring, and loving daughter. So, I know you were a great Mom and grandmother. I know you will be greatly missed by so many.
