Deaths-Edna-IsaacAfter a Sunday evening service, at 14, Edna sought her parents’ help and surrendered her life to Jesus. “Then the battle really began,” she wrote. She claimed 1 John 1:7, 9. Edna attended Mennonite Collegiate Institute, Gretna, Man., and Yarrow (B.C.) Bible School. She took employment training at Essondale (B.C.) Mental Hospital (now Riverview). After years of spiritual conflict and doubt, at a Brunk Tent Revival in Abbotsford, B.C., Edna followed the Spirit’s prompting to commit herself more fully to following Christ. Over 4 decades, Edna was Art’s faithful partner in ministry. She took their frequent moves in stride. She accompanied him in visitation, bringing her wonderful baking. Edna clung to Hebrews 13:5. She memorized many verses and could often be found reading Scripture and devotionals in her craft room. Edna will be remembered for her crafts, baking, warm smiles and hugs. As cancer spread, she longed to see her Saviour.
