In addition she is survived by two sisters, Charlcie Horton and Hattie Moon.

Edna worked at the Bell Bomber (Lockheed Plant) during WWII, however she was too young to work on the floor, so she worked upstairs. She spent most of her business career as a bookkeeper most notably, at Sharp Appliances from which she retired. However, her most treasured pastime for her was spending it with family and friends. She loved putting together puzzles, driving around looking at homes with her husband Alton; local travel, antiquing, collecting antique chairs, gardening, and adored cooking and preparing wonderful feast for her entire family.
