Edna grew up in Beverly, OH and graduated from Beverly High School in 1950. She enjoyed telling stories of her childhood and about working at the movie theater in Beverly where she met her future husband. Edna was a homemaker and the “glue” to making the family farm operate as she often had to become the “referee” in raising a family with a lot of boys. She absolutely loved her family and took tremendous joy in attending their many school and athletic events. She loved to travel as her and her husband had traveled to all 50 states as well as several countries overseas, always accompanied by family members. She also enjoyed bowling for many years and dancing.
Edna was a member of St. John the Baptist Church in Churchtown and the Catholic Women’s Club. She was an avid supporter of St. John Central Grade School and Waterford High School.

She is survived by her 7 children: Wanda (Charlie), Terry (Karen), Larry, and Gary (Nancy) of Waterford, Frank (Judy) of Marietta, Brady (Cheryl) and Russell (Betina) of Waterford.
