    Our very special Great-Aunt will be missed but always adored. We will forever have a smile on our face with the temptation to laugh about some memory of Aunt Edna and her quick wit or hilarious comments.

  • Jeff Hinkle says:

    Feel free to give in to temptation, Blythe. Yes, I remember her the same way.

  • Ed and Martha Keener says:

    Edna was a woman of hospitality, love, and humor. She loved the church, both local and beyond; friends and family, her husband Bob, mission, laughter, and fun. She will be remembered. Her legacy is rich and full, just as her life was. Ed and Martha
