So sorry she is going to be missed glad I put music in for her
I enjoyed working with the Thomas Trio in the early 1970's along is Ike Thomas Edna's brother in law and brother to her late husband "Owen". We remember brothers Floyd and Paul and others in the Thomas family including Edna's father in law. The Thomas family were instrumental in my dad, George W. Pyle's early ministry in the Fairmont and Morgantown/Mount Morris Pa. We visited once at East Finley PA. Our family were very good friends with the Thomas families. We send our condolences to all!
