Edna married Arthur on Christmas Day 1947 and had six boys in eight years, always hoping for a girl.

Every Christmas season she worked long hours baking these tasty cookies for her family.
Edna loved to travel and one of her favorite destinations was Arizona. Board games was another passion of hers and she was known as the queen of the Parcheesi blockade.
Edna was a very strong person, endured many hardships and was always willing to give of herself to help others. She never lost faith and always placed her family first.
Mother/Memaw you will be greatly missed and thought of often. Your family wishes you a safe journey. Heaven was the goal and now you are home.

I was Edna’s mailman for more than 20 years. Every Christmas I looked forward to eating the best sand tarts ever made. She was a great baker and a very nice lady. R.I.P. kEN
