Edna was a very special lady in so many ways. Her love of teaching is what I know most about her as we taught together. Her gift of teaching reading blessed so many students.

Edna was a wonderful woman, mother and teacher. She loved teaching reading to her students and they in turn loved her. I will miss her friendship and her warming and caring personality.
