I have just discovered that Edna Maude,
a class mate of mine had passed away. We went to school together in Jasper and graduated together in 1948. My prayers are with you at this difficult time. I have many fond memories of her.

So many happy memories including each of you beginning when we first met 58 years ago in Tripoli Libya.
So very sorry to learn of your mother's passing.
We will not be able to make it to the services as our health is better than many but there are conditions that do not allow us to be out and about at this time.
Please know each of you are in our hearts and prayers now.
Love, hugs, and prayers always,

I have such fond memories of sweet Edna and her family when we lived in Libya. Growing up in Tripoli, being best friends with Georgiana, climbing the walls to their house, and having family picnics at the beach with their family.
Memories of Georgiana and i trying on all her dance dresses and petticoats come flooding back. Edna had such patience with us playing dress up allowing us to dance around the house with her beautiful fancy dresses. She was such a good dancer, even belly dancing. She tried to teach us.
She had the rhythm.....both George and Edna had the rhythm and danced beautifully together. I have another fond memory of her allowing us to play hairdresser. She very patiently allowed me to brush her hair for long lengths of time and always complemented what a good job i did. She was so loving and accepting. I always felt safe with her.
She was a loving, kind, generous person. I send my heartfelt sympathies to Georgiana and Linda and their families. Much LOVE and huge hugs are sent your way. 💖💓💞🌟✨✨

We first met in the early days of oil exploration in Tripoli, Libya. Our daughters were great friends and I can still see them cartwheeling their way home from school over the sandy roads. Edna and George were the best dancing partners. I am sure they picked up their step now that they are together again. Many kisses to Georgiana, Linda and their families.

Edna and I shared so many memories. We knew each other for 61 years. We first met in Tripoli Libya. There were so many fun times with George and Edna. While in Tripoli, we tried every restaurant in town it seems as there was always a reason to eat out and the food was great. We bowled a lot and formed a team that entered a mixed league tournament and won it. We enjoyed many parties and card games . After coming back to Houston we continued meeting at Edna's house every Christmas until the last one. What a wonderful friend she was!

I am lucky enough to be a part of the Thursday Poker Pals group, Although I knew both Edna and George from our Lodge days, spending many Thursday's with her playing cards, telling stories, and eating lots of good food enhanced the friendship and left me with lots of wonderful memories. I'll miss you Edna.
