So very sorry for your loss. Edna was such a beautiful and kind lady. My thoughts are with you ElVirna and all the family. Elmer and Edna are once again joined together. I have lots of great memories of Elmer and Edna growing up.

What a great life. She and Elmer were regulars in church every Sun in the 90's. I remember she used to be the mayor of House, NM. Didn't realize she played piano for church.

Dear Robbie and Donnie and rest of the family. So sad to hear about the passing of Edna this morning. Her and Elmer were great friends of my Dad, Leo Moon and my Mom, Betty Moon. I heard many of good things about Elmer and Edna. They were a very important part of my growing up life. I remember attending Church with them most of my life. I appreciate the family friendship. May God send you comfort and blessings to each of Edna's precious family members. Love Connie (Moon) Rowland
