Edna Marie Hattaway Williams

Edna Marie Hattaway Williams

Mrs. Edna Marie Hattaway Williams was born on August 8, 1928 to Ezra and Reudell Hattaway.

She attended Calvin High School. She married the love of her life, Audrey Williams, whom she met at the Civilian Conservation Corp Camp. When they eloped on April 1, 1944, Audrey wrote a letter to Ezra and Reudell promising to love and care for Edna. She was a devoted wife and mother, never happier than when she had all her kids together at home and she could cook good things to eat.

Edna grew up in the Great Depression, raised four children, survived the bite of a copperhead and killed countless more with a hoe. Fearsome with a hoe, Edna had poor aim with a rifle. She famously raised the bedroom window one afternoon and aimed a .22 at deer in the east garden. Both survived the incident.
