Edna Fast Maguire

June 17, 1921 - December 22, 2017

East Wenatchee, WA

Edna Fast Maguire, 96, of East Wenatchee, WA, died December 22, 2017. Edna was
born June 17,1921, in Walla Walla, WA, to Edouard and Anna (Davin) Faure. Edna
was raised on a ranch in rural Marengo, WA. She traveled by horse and buggy to
a one room schoolhouse where she received her elementary education. For grades
seven and eight, she boarded at St. Joseph’s Academy in Sprague, WA. The
family moved to Ritzville, WA, where Edna completed high school. She graduated
from Washington State University, in 1942, with a BS in Business. She married
Robert “Bob” R. Fast (WSU School of Veterinary Medicine) in 1944. Edna and Bob
moved to Hermiston, OR, in 1945, and opened the Hermiston Veterinary Hospital.
Bob died in 1960. Edna continued to own and operate the hospital until 1996,
when she married Jack Maguire of Wenatchee, WA. They purchased a home in East
Wenatchee. Edna and Jack enjoyed traveling throughout the United States,
Canada, and Mexico. They also toured South America, Europe, Northern Africa,
the Orient, and Australia. Edna’s interests included education and her
community. She and Jack established scholarships at Seattle University and
Wenatchee Valley College. They endowed a research lab at the WSU School of
Veterinary Medicine. After Jack’s death, in 1998, Edna continued their legacy
of giving. Her final gift was to provide funds to Wenatchee Valley College for
the new Student Recreation Center. Edna was a lifetime member of Catholic
Daughters and AAUW (American Association of University Women). She was active
in American Cancer, YWCA, Central Washington Hospice, and was a Wenatchee
Valley Hospital volunteer. She belonged to Holy Apostles Catholic Church and
Wenatchee Valley Golf and Country Club.

She is survived by her daughters: Virginia Fast and Jeannie (Loran) Vahlsing;
brother, Ed (Betty) Faure; grandchildren: Matthew Vahlsing and Anna (Brian)
Casey; and great-grandchildren: Eric and Erin Casey.

The family wishes to thank the staff of Prestige Senior Living at Colonial
Vista Care Facility for the special care they provided Edna. They would also
like to express gratitude to Central Washington Hospice for its support and
services.
