Edna was born on 11/05/1949 in Erie, PA, to James and Annabel. She graduated from Northwestern Senior High School in 1967 with a High-School Diploma. She married Donald in 1976. After moving to La Puente, Edna was a stay-at-home mom helping raise her children and take care of her husband’s trucking business. She later wanted to become a nurse and help others. Over the past 45 years, the couple welcomed 6 children into their home, and Edna set about teaching them life and the Lord. Her children remember her as a kind, gentle, patient, and driven mother who encouraged them to pursue their goals. Her son became a licensed therapist with all her hard work, and her daughters became pharmacy techs and groomers; two became teachers and shift supervisors. She was so proud of what her children did with their lives and played a huge role in the lives of her grandchildren and great-grandchild.
Edna was accomplished at taking care of her children, loving the Lord, and often playing the piano. She was a generous, kind, and dedicated individual who loved the Lord with all her heart and soul. She was passionate about making sure that everyone around her knew that the Lord loved them and was always with them. She was an active and dedicated member of the Calvary Faith Center for 5 years. For the past 3 years, she lived with her friend Linda and often volunteered at her church, the puppet ministry, knitted blanket for the foster care system, played piano weekly, got the church ready for communion, volunteered for hospitality, making plans for a women’s bible study and helped at the Senior Center in Rancho.
Later, a celebration of life service will be scheduled at Calvary Faith Center, with a reception to follow. Pastor Mike Dunn and his wife Kerri will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Edna’s life. The family would like to thank the nurses, hospital staff, and everyone for their efforts, care, and dedication.
