Edna was born September 6, 1934 in Ephrata, Pennsylvania. She and her late husband, Leon M. Martin, raised a family of five children, and owned a local roofing business. She was a fulltime homemaker who loved to garden, quilt, can, cook and bake. Most of all, she loved her children and dedicated her life to caring for them. She also made many meals for friends and people in need.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Laraine Kulp; and son, Lee Isaac Martin; siblings, Reuben Hurst, Isaac Hurst, Aaron Hurst, Annie Nolt, Frances Hurst.
Edna supported many missionary and charity works. Her heart, however, always went out to hurting children. In lieu of flowers, please send memorial contributions in her memory to an orphanage she strongly supported: HOINA, PO Box 636, Brownstown, PA 17508-0636.
