KEARNEY - Edna G. Age 93, passed away at Thurston Woods Village, January 5, 2018. From her birth in Rochester, NY, on January 16, 1924 to her death on Friday she nourished people around her with love, faith, and her baking. She was born in Rochester, NY to Henry an Edna Gessner and was the oldest of two children. After graduating high school Edna held various secretarial jobs. She retired from the State of New York Board of Education in the 1980's yet still continued to work for her local church's office until the late 90's. Left to honor Edna and remember her love is Edna's sister Ria; three children John, Vicky, and Liz; four grandchildren Jessica, Jimmy, Tyler and Christopher and two great-grandchildren Emma and Henry. Edna was preceded in death by her parents and her husband Jim. Per Edna's wishes cremation has taken place. Edna's funeral and mass will be held at a future date. The Kearney family would like to extend our gratitude to all the staff at Thurston Woods Nursing Center in Sturgis, MI for their attentiveness and loving care. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Edna's name to the Thurston Woods Auxiliary, 307 North Franks Ave., Sturgis, MI, 49091.
