Good Bye to my dear friend, fellow “500″ card club player, fellow teacher, and walking partner. RIP
I always remember Edna on the “Leaf cruise” sailing to Canada/New England ports with her daughter Jan and friends. She was a lovely lady.
My mother, Walburga Kerestes, treasured Edna’s long friendship. My daughter, Allison, and I remember Edna for her loving and generous nature…and big warm smile! God’s blessings to her family.
