Condolences

Condolence From: Sharon Wright
Condolence: Edna was Elm Grove. She took care of everyone at school as if they were her children whether they were students or employees. Her office was run with love and efficiency. I was only at Elm Grove for 2 years but she made me feel welcome and helped adjust to my new surroundings. Everyone who knew Edna has great memories of her generosity and acceptance for all. May those memories help in this time of sadness.

Condolence From: Becky Hayes
Condolence: I will never forget the day I learned her name was not 'Miss Vicky'. I was in charge of caring for the flag one day and noticed the name plate on her desk. All those years she never flinched at my error. My sincerest sympathy to her family. I'm certain she will be missed.

Condolence From: Janis Puderbaugh
Condolence: Dear Rhonda, Doug, Gail, Megan, Sheila, and family, It goes totally without saying that Edna's passing will leave a gigantic void in the lives of all who knew her. But we didn't just 'know' her. Edna was the essence of caring and kindness to all she knew and even to those she didn't. In our Elm Grove family, she was our mother, our friend, our champion in good times and not so good. (There were few of those times.) From the most easy to love, vigorously groomed and scrubbed to the grimy little imps, she served each child equal, heaping helpings of love and grace and invaluable individual time at her desk for lunch. She did the same for teachers. We were all recipients of her loving care and grace. There was never a shortage...enough to go around for all of us. Edna was sunshine in a room, the voice of reason in a storm and the first to don the cloak of orneriness when you just couldn't stand being a good example a minute longer. It was a true compliment to be included in those episodes. For nearly 50 years it has been the greatest honor to have this precious woman in my life and that of my family. My children loved her as much as I did. She was my friend, my mother, my confidante, my cohort in crime. I shall miss her with all my heart. It is my fervent desire that your happy and loving memories of Edna will sustain you through difficult times and your hearts will heal quickly with the knowledge that Edna would say, "Don't be sad, I'm ok now!" I know she is! The world was better with Edna in it. Now, so is heaven. Jan Puderbaugh
