Dorothy I. "Gram" (Ostrander) Edmundson, 85, a resident of The Lutheran Home at Hollidaysburg, went home to be with the Lord early Wednesday morning at the home. She was born in Altoona, daughter of the late Arthur C. Sr. and Catharine (Burns) Ostrander. Left behind to cherish her memory are two daughters: Jeanette Yingling and husband, Roy, of Altoona and Judith Thomas and husband, George, of Altoona, with whom she resided before becoming a resident of the home; four grandchildren: Debbie (McGeary) Miller of LaPlace, La., and her children, Matthew Maierhofer (Missy), Elizabeth Alexander (Jerome), Meredith and Heather; Charles "Butch" McGeary (Sandy) of Altoona and their children, Angela Yarnell (Ryan), Megan and Logan; Denny Scott (Melody) of Pittsburgh; and Jill Ralston (George) of Altoona and their children, Zachary and Ian; two great-great-granddaughters: Brooke Maierhofer and Maddison Alexander; and a brother, Ormond Ostrander (Anobel) of Altoona. She was preceded in death by two brothers: Arthur C. Jr. and David Ostrander; and an infant sister, Shirley. Dorothy was a 1941 graduate of Altoona High School. "Gram" enjoyed spending time with her daughters and their families. She also liked to bake, cook, read, do needlework and play Scrabble. Another joy in her life was being a "Baton and Sports Gram."
