Schreck Anderson in Wheatland, Wyoming. She was the youngest to three older sisters: Vera, Alice, and Ida. She grew up in or around Wheatland. She loved riding horses and spending time with her best friend Caroline, who eventually became her sister-in-law. Edna married Miles Matthew Irving on June 3, 1944 and to this union they were blessed with nine children: Timothy, Pamela, Linda, Allen, Charlene, Daryl, Jeffery, Diane, and Brent. The family moved from Wheatland to Columbia when Pam was a baby. They lived in Columbia until 1956 when they moved to Knoxville. After her husband passed away, Edna was fortunate enough to meet Albert Lee Davis who she later married. Edna worked throughout her life, as a Stanley Lady, Tupperware consultant, and a Cook at Maple Buffet. She started Pella Corporation in 1978 and worked until 1989 when she retired. She was known to her family and friends as a caregiver. She took great care of her family, and her friends. Many people stayed at her house over the years. She had an endless will to help anyone that may need it. Edna did not know a stranger; some would say she was a bit ornery and liked to tease people. She loved being social and enjoying social settings. She loved her family and spending time with her grandchildren. She did not learn to cook until she was married, however that did not hinder her from being a good one, and a great baker. She was known for her homemade bread and cinnamon rolls. Edna will be greatly missed by her children: Tim (Arla) Irving, Pam (Lee) Dachenbach, Linda (Jim) Kelly, Charlene (Clyde) Seivers, Daryl (Sue) Irving, Jeff Irving, and Diane (John) Collins; 15 grandchildren: 25 great-grandchildren; 5 great great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her past husbands: Miles Irving and Albert Davis; her two sons: Allen and Brent Irving; 4 grandchildren: Miles, Trevor, Matt, and Andy; and great-grandchild Kayla Brayley.
