Edna made quite an impression when we first became acquainted at JC Penny ~I would let people go ahead of me in line, just so I would have a chance to chat with her. Such a hard working woman! And after a full work day, she would go home and work out on her treadmill! She always looked lovely, was soft spoken, gracious and smiled ... I miss seeing her, and am very glad to have had her acquaintance. Am very sorry for the family's loss~
