  • Notes 
    • Edna and Arthur “moved to Cameron, in 1940, where Edna became a saleslady, first at Leader Department Store, then McIntosh's, and later at J. C. Penney Company. She has been an active worker in Abiding Savior Lutheran Church in Cameron. After Arthur's death in 1987, Edna organized a non-denominational widows group called ‘Widow's Mite’ which has continued to meet monthly.” [1]
