Edna loved cooking, gardening, bowling, dancing (square and polka), "knocking around the country," fishing and collecting rocks with Kirley.

After Kirley retired in 1981, they spent several years traveling from coast to coast visiting friends and family, "watching pigs learn to fly and embracing life with a kiss and a hug and a smile," her family said. "Once Edna and Kirley slowed down a bit they became heavily involved with the Senior Citizen's Center in Mountain Home."

Kirley preceded her in death in 2002.

The family asks that no flowers be sent.
