On June 26, 1947, Edna Gehloff and Milo Roeglin were united in marriage in Waseca, Minn. The couple farmed near Waseca, Minn., before moving to Langworthy, Iowa, in 1960. Edna worked at Monty Produce during those years. The couple later moved to Martelle, Iowa, where they lived for 40 years and Edna worked as a custodian at Cornell College in Mount Vernon for 22 years. In retirement, Edna helped Milo in collecting sap from the maple trees in town to make maple syrup, and then he and Edna would sell the syrup at the flea markets. She and Milo loved to go dancing whenever they had a chance. Edna also loved to garden and can her produce. She was a great cook and baker, always having some pies and bars in the freezer ready to go. She loved playing scrabble, sewing, collecting cardinals and being a member of the Red Hat Society. She enjoyed winning prizes at Friday bingo at the care center. Edna took great pride and joy in her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Edna's family wishes to thank the staff of the Anamosa Care Center for their wonderful care, and also wishes to express their heartfelt appreciation for the loving compassionate care the staff of the Dennis and Donna Oldorf Hospice House provided.
