Born October 15, 1935, in St. Louis, Missouri, to Penny Roy and Suzie Kazee Brown, Edna was a graduate of Sumner High School in St. Louis. She lived and worked in Houston, Texas, and St. Louis before moving to Richmond, where she retired as a dietary supervisor from Reid Health. Edna enjoyed reading, solving crossword puzzles, and crocheting. She had a great sense of fashion, always “sharp as a tack”. Edna will be dearly missed.
