She was very involved in her community and church. She helped form the local NAACP chapter and also Greater Community Missionary Baptist Church on Hwy Y. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of St. Robert and was willing to help anyway that she could. Edna loved her family tremendously. She was always looking for ways to make their time together special and looked forward to spending time with them every chance she could. Due to her health, Edna moved closer to her son three years ago. According to her children, Edna was the strongest person they have ever met. She had a kind heart and a strong hand. Brutally honest but very giving and charitable! Mean spirited but had a good sense of humor.
