Edna Clare Gain was the daughter of a Great Lakes Sailor, Robert Earl Gain. She married Thomas D. Kerley about 1916. He died in Los Angeles sometime before 1940. It appears she did not remarry.

In 1916, she was listed as a nurse in the Los Angeles City directory. In 1920, Edna was working as a private nurse. By 1940, Edna was widowed, living in San Diego with her sister, Vesta Gain-Woods, and her family. Edna was listed on the 1940 census as a "companion nurse." Perhaps her decision was influenced by the 4 months of suffering her mother, Harriet, went through after she was hospitalized with breast cancer in 1910.

After Edna's death, she was buried with her parents, Harriet and Robert Gain, in Port Huron, Michigan. She is resting beside her mother in an unmarked spot.
