Edna Virginia Harper, 92

Edna Virginia Harper, 92, died at her residence on December 23, 2014. Edna was a Henderson County native and was born and lived in the Harper Family residence on Harper road her entire life. In addition to her mother, she was also preceded in death by her sister Ruth Harper.

Edna worked for the Spinning Wheel and the Kemp family and their former business, Diamond Brand Company until her retirement. She enjoyed gardening, and kept a special place in her heart for all her cats. As the years went by, and she mellowed with age, she grew quite fond of all of her caretakers, knowing they allowed her to stay in her "home place". Edna was very grateful to her Mountain Home Care "family" of care givers, Tracy, Kim, Libby, Christina and others who allowed Edna to live out her life in her home.

She is survived by Gerald Griffin and several other cousins, nieces and nephews.
