Edna was the daughter of James and Isabel (McDonald) Gamble, Born in Port Sanilac, MI. Edna was a graduate of Croswell-Lexington High School.

Edna raised six children. All unique, all bringing something different to the table. It’s not easy to raise six kids. Some of us were trouble makers, and some of us were relatively uncomplicated. Regardless, Edna loved equally.

At one time, Edna considered opening a small bakery. The world would have been a tastier place if she had. Her cookies and fudge are amazing. Many have tried to emulate her recipes, but it never turned out quite like hers

Rooting for the Red Wings was a favorite past time, usually with a cold beer next to her. Frank Sinatra was her favorite singer. All her children, and many of the grandchildren, grew up hearing his music on the record player. It wouldn’t be surprising if she is requesting songs from him even now.

As stated before, Edna had six children, but she would have told you seven. Lisa Hamilton was not blood, but she was Edna’s third daughter. They have had a special bond for many years.

Edna will be remembered always. We will cherish our memories of time spent with her and know that she is at peace.

A graveside memorial service will be held at Kinney Cemetery, 3399 Vincent Rd. North Street, MI 48049 on June 25,2021 at 11:00am.
