Edna came to the North Loup area with her parents at the age of two and attended the Davis Creek Country School near North Loup. She was united in marriage in 1901 to John Coleman and they lived in North Loup for the remainder of their lives where she worked as a midwife for a doctor for a number of years. She was a member of the Old Friend's Church and the Rebecca Lodge, both of North Loup.
