Edna Merle Huckett Obituary
EDNA MERLE HUCKETT passed away on February 28, 2016 at the age of 91. Edna was born February 19, 1925 in Sioux City, Iowa to the late Homer and Edna Watson. At the age of eleven, her family moved to Riverside County. She graduated from Riverside Poly in 1943, and started working for Pacific Telephone and Telegraph. She had a wonderful career for 30 years, advancing to management in Traffic Engineering. The majority of her career was in the Riverside office, but she held management positions in San Bernardino, Anaheim, and San Diego. Her husband, Al Huckett, also worked for Pacific Telephone and Telegraph for 30 years until he passed in 1967. Edna had a group of bowling friends for many years. She first became interested in bowling during high school in 1941. Throughout the years she was on teams with family and friends, winning many trophies and prizes well into her eighties. Many nieces and nephews, including great and great-great nieces and nephews, survive Edna. Her husband, Art, parents, and all her brothers and sisters preceded her in death. Although Edna did not have children of her own, she embraced life with a love of family and friends. She lived independently, enjoyed traveling and participating in activities with her extended family. A celebration of her life will be held on March 5, 2016, 10:30am, at Olivewood Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Magnolia Presbyterian Church, 7200 Magnolia Avenue, Riverside, in Edna's honor.
