On May 3, 1925, Edna was born to Walter Ralph Anderson and Anna Irene Herd in Picher, Oklahoma. She had a great sense of humor and she loved to laugh. Edna would faithfully keep juicy secrets. She enjoyed sewing, crosswords, and puzzles. During dinner, Edna liked to watch the Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Every time she’d see Donald Trump on TV, she would point at the screen and use her handgun gesture with her fingers to shoot him. Edna loved to grow plants, she had a green thumb in gardening. Traveling was a pleasure and joy to her, especially riding the bus. Edna really enjoyed the time she lived in Japan. Her greatest joy in life was spending time and making memories with her grandchildren, Edna adored them more than anything. Edna was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed not only by her family and friends but, by all those fortunate enough to have known her.
