    I am sorry for your loss. I knew Edna Grace for many years when I worked in the County Finance Office. She was a fine lady. I enjoyed hearing about her vacations such as her going white water rafting. Sorry that I can not attend the services as I am getting over Covid and do not want to take a chance to spread it.

    My cousin Edna Grace was fun to grow up with, we laughed and giggled as youngsters. As adults we stayed close and loved sharing our experiences. I will miss her and always love her. Helen Marshburn Wilson

    Edna Grace was a very special woman. She always had a great smile & always had a kind word about everything & everyone. My husband, Paul, enjoyed Edna Grace as part of their breakfast club. Later Edna Grace joined our evening dinner club at Supreme Buffet Hibachi Grill. We all loved Edna Grace & will miss her dearly. Our thoughts & prayers are with her family. Love, Laura & Cortney Quinn
