Miss Edna was an amazing woman who touched so many lives. She was my first teacher. I learned many lessons, but the one I will NEVER forget (thanks to her ruler slapping my palm) is not to cheat off your neighbor. I am thankful for her. She will be missed by so many. God bless your family in this time of great loss.

Mrs. Edna was one of the first people I met when I came to Odenville. She kept all 3 of my children and I felt such peace knowing they were in such good hands. I wonder how many lives were changed by her Day Care. One thing I will never forget is how kind she was when my Blair died. She was generous to our family and a great comfort during our time of sorrow. She will be missed by many.

When I think of Miss Edna I can see that beautiful smile and hear the sweetest, soft voice!
She was an angel here on earth. She loved my children along with many others in Odenville!
To us working Moms I don’t know what we would have done without you. I remember going from the basement to her new beautiful building! It was a beautiful building filled with, the love of God, love of children, loving workers and lots of babies, toddlers, kindergarteners and their leader “MISS EDNA”!
You will never be forgotten and always remembered as the sweet CHRISTIAN lady who took care of Odenville’s children!
I love you and so grateful our paths crossed!

Mrs Edna, was the beginning for many, many kids. When I think back as far as I can, it starts at Mrs Edna house. I have life long friends that I met there. We all still have that special bond that came from her. She is where I learned the Pledge of Allegiance , and how to pray and be thankful for our daily bread. I can’t remember anything else at such a young age but I remember her house and my friends vividly. I remember her play ground where I spent hours in an old boat pretending to be lost at sea and going fast. She instilled everything that we needed to grow up without leaving anything out. She is probably the most known and most special lady to my generation around the Odenville community and will be missed dearly. Thank you Mrs Edna for such an amazing childhood

I can't believe this day has came. I thought you would be around forever. You have filled my heart and been by my side since I was about 3. I would not be half the person I am without you. You showed me what grace, morality, forgiveness, patience, and humility was, not to mention 1000 more things. Thank you for each second you spent with me and many others over the years. I couldn't have asked for a better 2nd mom. My heart is broken in a million pieces but full knowing you are no longer in pain. If I could have taken and carried that for you, I would have. You were the epitome of grace, happiness, resilience, tenacity, exuberance, and love. You taught me why love is unconditional. I am honored to have held your hand these past few weeks, knowing it would be the last times. Thank you for looking after me most of my life and now looking over me being my angel. I love and miss you more than I can ever describe. Jesus, You got a good one, use her well. Amen.
