She and David Edson owned a strawberry farm north of Wheeler, Michigan. She was always outside helping Dad on the farm. She loved our father and we learned how to love by her example.
When he died in 1991, she was determined to stay in their home! She would often say, "I feel closer to your father when I'm here and I'll be happy when I finally go see our Heavenly Father to be with your Dad! " She died on July 27, 2004 in their home.
