Edna Barkley
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: May 21, 1872
Death: 1966

Early in life, Edna was greatly deafened when, during a storm, a lightning ball came through a screen door and struck her. "Aunt" Edna ran the Barkley store in Coopers Plains for many years following her father's death. Due to her deafness, she would often drop change on the floor unnoticed, and her nieces and nephews, when visiting, took great joy in searching under the counters for pennies, nickels and dimes, which Aunt Edna laughingly let them keep. Following her retirement, she lived seasonally with her sister Hyla's children: Doris Veazie Ludder (Florida), Alice Veazie Skalnik (Virginia) and F Munro Veazie (Ohio). Late in life, in spite of worsening cataracts, she was an inveterate reader, holding books within inches of her thick-lensed glasses, often reading ten or more books a week. In conversations with her grand-nephew Bruce Veazie, she related memories of seeing her first automobile and first airplane. In contrast, she watched space launches on television. She was intelligent and sharp to the end, and was generous to a fault. She is greatly missed.
