Going to community dances with her sisters and parents, she discovered she had a gift for dancing.Edna attended school at the Dodge Country School until the eighth grade, or as she liked to say, until she was bigger than her teacher and could no longer sit at the small desks.

Together they had six children, three boys and three girls. Later in life, again finding love, Edna married Raymond Moore. Several years after Raymond passed away, Edna married Richard Light on July 6, 1977, in Miami, Okla.
