Memories of my Nana, she was everyones Nana. A angel who blessed us all. A memory doesn't recall her smile and warm embrace. The sweetest ever!! Memory: the retention of information over time for the purpose of influencing future action. Nana always made me feel comfortable and loved. I will miss her very much! Love you Nana ❤

Dear Janet, James, Kenny and to all the Family of Edna. Please accept our condolances with the loss of your mother. Edna was a very special lady and neighbor of ours for 39 years of our life. She will truly be missed by us not only as a neighbor, a friend and to me as a second mother. She was always there for me whenever I needed to talk. She always amazed me at the things that she was capable of handling and doing even as she aged. I will miss our conversations about crafts, baking, and genealogy research that we used to work on together. She was so thrilled with her surprise 100th birthday party, and she still couldn’t stop talking about it weeks after. She just couldn’t believe how so many people could keep this a secret for such a long time. She was very special and will be missed dearly. May you rest in peace Mrs. Connor.

I knew Edna Connor since the date of my birth, a little over eighty-one years. She was the best mother anyone could have. She loved and was loved by everyone she knew or knew her. I have so many wonderful memories of her I cannot tell them all. But the one memory I have that stands forever in my mind is that she was always conscious of other people's feelings. She told me a story that happened before I was born about one of her brothers that painted her kitchen green. Everything was painted green, including a small table top radio that was on a counter. She never complained or mentioned the radio to her brother because she didn't want to hurt his feelings.
