After 25 years, she retired from the Hardin County Detention Center where she was called "Miss Edna" by everybody even by inmates after they were released. Then working at the Etown Tourism Bureau, she enjoyed meeting many people. The only strangers were the people she never met. She was always ready to tell a joke, she enjoyed traveling but didn't get to as much as she would have liked. She especially enjoyed looking at the lake and feeding and watching the birds from her sunroom. She loved music and loved to dance.
