Barbara Howell

Barb and family, I know how much your mom meant to each and everyone one of you. She was such a sweet, sweet lady! May you find comfort that she is now in the hands of God. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, and may your memories live on in your hearts! All our love, Fred and Debbie Moeves


With love from an old friend…

My Grandmother, Charlotte Flynn, was so sad to hear of Edna’s passing. She loving referred to her as her “best friend”. She feels badly that the complications of age and health have kept them apart the last few years but enjoys sharing stories and memories of all the time they shared. I too remember Edna’s kindness and bright smile. Your family is in our thoughts.
With Love – Charlotte Flynn and grand daughter, Kelly


Your Mom

MaryAnn, she was a wonderful lady. May the Peace of the LORD be with her always. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Rick, and the family. Big Hugs to you.


Bob Riehemann

Edna and Jack went out of their way to help my family when my father, Bob, who was Jack’s brother, died in the mid 60s. My sister, Mary, remembers Edna as the kindest of her aunts and uncles and I remember Edna as taking time to assist my mother when we lived in Erlanger. I’m glad that I knew her. Our family always admired her family.


LARRY STEPHENSON

What a terrific person who had a wonderful life! I have long considered Edna to be a true saint. Although she had a long life, I know her passing is extremely hard for all of her many friends and large family. My prayers are for all of you, and I thank God that I had the chance to get to know Edna and Jake while coaching perhaps my favorite Knothole player, Guy. Great and wonderful memories! My very deepest condolences.
