Edna was an avid softball player since early childhood and in her late teens played for the women’s team, Monmouth Whites, which was later sponsored by the Illinois Bankers Life Insurance Co., and with whom the team achieved second place in the state. For the last several years she was a faithful spectator at her oldest great granddaughter’s A.S.A. softball games, cheering on the Quad City Firebirds.
She also loved the outdoors, including camping and boating, reading, and spending time with her grandchildren, and great grandchildren at family activities. She was a member of Edgington Presbyterian Church.
She is survived by her daughter, Eileen (Kenneth) Moseley, Taylor Ridge, IL; three grandchildren, Anne (Peter) Hantz, Moline, IL, Rachelle (Matt) Brown, Andalusia, IL, and Micah Moseley, Taylor Ridge, IL; three great-grandchildren, Jasmine Moseley, and Kendall and Zachary Brown; and a step-great granddaughter, Mercedes Hantz.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, one half-sister, Alta Smith, and three sisters, Ruth Hood, Lois Anderson, and Anna Mae Shughart.
Our sincere condolences on the passing of your mother. She was a classy lady and a wonderful mother, grandmother and aunt. May she rest in peace!

I worked with Edna many years ago at Canteen. I will never forget her smile and the words of wisdom she always had for a silly 19 year old girl. What a sweet lady!
