As a young woman she became a member of the United Brethren church of Beaconsfield.
Edna, a lover of life and of all those who lived it, was known as "Grandma"

will miss her ready smile, quick wit and cheery "hello."

Kellerton; three grandchildren, Lloyd NICHOLS of Ottumwa, Iowa, Glen NICHOLS
of Grand River, Iowa, and Reba JUDSON of Rapid City, S. Dak.; eight
