Edna Lorenz Persling, 88

Edna Lorenz Persling, 88, passed away on Sunday, May 12, 2019, at Luther Park in Sandpoint, Idaho, surrounded by family. Private family services have been held.

Edna was born on March 12, 1931, in Dodge, N.D., to Fred and Magdalena Lorenz. She grew up and attended schools in Dodge. She earned her teaching certificate and taught school for a couple of years.

After the children left home she became a professional drapery seamstress. In 2016, Edna moved to Sandpoint to be closer to family.

She was a member of St. Paulís Lutheran Church in Cut Bank and enjoyed competing in the Cut Bank Toastmistress competitions.
