Edna worked as the dental hygienist for Leo’s dental practice for several years. After becoming parents, Edna embraced raising their children and caring for their family home. In addition to the joy of her family, she enjoyed gardening, reading, working word and jigsaw puzzles, creating beautiful cross-stitch artwork, playing bridge with her girlfriends, dining and dancing with friends, and later in life spending time at her Red Hatter gatherings . She was a dedicated NY Mets and Buffalo Bills fan. She loved her granddaughters and loved spending time with family on holidays and at family events.


Her remaining family includes her children John (Carol) Nash, Elizabeth (Paul) Irish, and Thomas (Eileen) Nash; her granddaughters Megan Nash and Carlee Irish; her brothers Edwin (Anne), Charles (Carolyn), Ralph (Sandy); as well as nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews.
