As a child, Edna grew up on the farm. She spent many long, hot days picking cotton by hand. Czech was her first language and she later learned English. If one were to ask Edna about herself, she would say that she was just plain vanilla. She was always committed to her family throughout her life. Aside from being a homemaker, Edna was manager of the furniture department at RBs for many years. She also worked at Weiners Dept. Store. In her free time, she loved talking with family and friends on the telephone. She also loved to play Bingo.
Pallbearers will be James F. Tracy Jr., James F. Tracy III, Adam Straznicky, Delbert Gajevsky, Bennie Richter Jr. and Andy Kuba.
