CROWN CITY — Edna Mae Halley, 89, of Crown City, Ohio, passed away on Thursday, March 27, 2014, at her son's home.
Edna was born on December 13, 1924, in Gallia County, Ohio. She was the daughter of the late Alta and Eva Barry Pinkerman. She was raised in the home of Glenville and Melva Halley. She was married to Billey Halley for 61 years and he preceded her in death in 2003. Edna was a devoted homemaker and had a love for working outdoors in her flowerbeds. Her greatest joy was taking care of and spending time with her family. She lived a life that was an example for many; always being a role-model for upholding family values. Even though everyday included working hard on the farm with the dairy and crops, she still managed to always have a hot meal ready for anyone who came to the door.
Edna is survived by three children Wanda (Chuck) Staton of Milton, Florida, Linda Fulks, and Jeff (Wendy) Halley, both of Crown City; four grandchildren, Tim (June) Calhoun, of Pensacola, Florida, Marlena Durst of Crown City, Jennifer (Bobby) Angel of Gallipolis, and Kristen (Stevie) Pelfrey of Patriot; three great-grandchildren, Abigail, Durst, Halli and Jake Angel; one sister, Erma (Joe) Lewis of Columbus, and a nephew, Terry Halley, who Edna raised lovingly in her home. Edna was preceded in death by her husband, an infant daughter, Brenda Lee, and a son-in-law, Richard Fulks.
Edna's family gives special thanks to her care-giver Tonia Call.
