Edna Egan April 12, 1940 - March 9, 2023 Edna lived on a farm west of Brighton where she enjoyed growing up with her four sisters and one brother. In addition, Edna reveled in the friends and extended family that lived in the area. Edna learned the value of hard work on the farm, the importance of farmers and gained a deep appreciation for the love of family and friends. Edna attended Zion Lutheran School through eighth grade and then, after 4 years of public school, graduating from Brighton High School.
After marrying a farm boy from east of Brighton on November 4, 1960, she and her husband Art, moved to Brighton. In Brighton she made life-long friends of her neighbors.

She lived at this location for 52 years, tending her flower garden, occasionally playing the piano and enjoying the open space. Edna and Art loved bicycling on area trails, often stopping to talk with people along the way.
