Edna O. Rowland

April 13, 1925 ~ November 7, 2013

Edna O. Rowland was born April 13, 1925 in Youngstown, Alberta, Canada and died November 7, 2013 in Wenatchee. She moved to Dryden, WA after she married in 1946. While she was always proud of her Canadian heritage, she grew to appreciate the beauty of the Wenatchee Valley and consider it home. She was a long-time member of the Eastmont Baptist Church and had a wonderful church family, with many caring friends. She always loved children and enjoyed serving in her church nursery and at Head Start. While her husband was alive, they were members of the Washington Old Time Fiddlers.

She was preceded in death by her husband, William Rowland; her granddaughter, Rachel Rowland; brothers, Norman and Roy Bignell; sisters, Iris Larson, Myrtle Worthing, Florence Bignell and Grace Mcfarland. She is survived by her children, Blayne Rowland of Seattle and Chery Pinton of Bremerton; her grandsons, Vince Rowland of Seattle and Max Pinton of Port Townsend; her siblings, Annette Williams of Hanna, Alberta, Ellie Moss of Mercer Island, WA, and Edward Bignell of Youngstown, Alberta; and nephews and nieces too numerous to list, but all very important to her.

Edna was a helpful, considerate person who lived up to her Christian values. Her bright smile and kindness touched many lives. She will be sorely missed by her family, friends and all who knew her.

A Funeral Service for Edna will begin at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 20, 2013 and will conclude at Telford’s Chapel of the Valley in East Wenatchee.
