Edna was an avid bowler and enjoyed playing cards. While living in Grand Island the family had a cabin at Ericson Lake, which was like a sanctuary for Edna. She loved to camp and fish, and the time spent at the lake seemed to embody many of the things that she valued in life. She was a wonderful seamstress and spent much time crocheting and embroidering. Edna enjoyed time spent over a cup of coffee with friends and neighbors. She also had a love for cooking, baking and canning; which she instilled in her children and grandchildren.
Edna was a member of the Parkview Methodist Church in Cozad.
