EDNA M. MERCER EINAN Einan's at Sunset Edna M. Mercer Einan, passed away after a long illness May 14, 2017 at the home of her daughter, Debbie Richman, in Pasco, WA. She was born on December 3, 1937, in Brewster, KS, to Charles Franklin Gage and Dora Butler Gage, and was the youngest of four children. At a young age, she moved with her family to California, where the family spent a short time, and subsequently moved to Prosser, WA. Edna graduated from Prosser High School in 1955. She married her high school sweetheart, Dale W. Mercer and together they raised four children on the family wheat farm on Horse Heaven in Prosser. Dale passed away in 1984. In 1988 she was married to Duaine L. Einan of Richland, and they made their home in Richland until Duaine's passing in 2005. Edna took pride in providing the noon meals to the wheat-harvest crew, enjoyed 30/70 dances with friends, Horse Heaven Grange Hall parties, square-dancing, and was on a Prosser bowling league. Later in life, she enjoyed spending time with her family, especially the Sunday get-togethers for dinner. She also adored her poodle, Belle, and was rarely seen without her four-legged companion. Edna is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Pearl Wilson; sister, Beth Lawless Brinkley; brother, Melvin Gage; and her great-granddaughter Angela Stevens. She is survived by her four children, daughter, Debbie Richman (Tim) of Pasco; daughter, Chrystal Mercer of Richland; son, Dale Wayne Mercer (Wanda) of Prosser; son, Chuck Mercer (Marcy) of Prosser; nine grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren.
