On, August 7, 1999, Edna symbolized her dedication to Jehovah God through water baptism. Her love and zeal for Jehovah and the ministry propelled her to regular pioneer until her health failed her. Nevertheless she spent as much time as she could in her ministry even having the opportunity to auxiliary pioneer in which she was able to make her hourly goal. Her ministry was very dear to her and she truly enjoyed the many people she studied the Bible with. She also truly enjoyed working with her brothers and sisters in the ministry especially her field service partner Marsha Polk. Her wittiness, joyful smile, and infectious laugh were only surpassed by the sharpness of her tongue. Edna had no problems telling you how she felt, how it was, and how it was going to be...no matter whom you were. Edna loved to cook and bake especially her famous pound cake and peach cobbler.
