Verna Edman

Edmonds, WA

Verna Edman passed away peacefully on February 4, 2024 at age 98 ¾ (“Halves and quarters count before age 5 and after age 95” she always said). Born on July 6, 1925 in Fresno, California, Verna attended John Muir Elementary, Hamilton Jr Hi and Fresno High, graduating in 1943. Her education continued at Fresno State College (now CSU Fresno) graduating with degrees in Biology and Chemistry. This landed her very impressive and challenging jobs as a Medical Technologist, Laboratory Scientist and Phlebotomist. A lifelong passion for learning continued as she returned to school to keep up with new medical knowledge and return to work after her children were born. At a blind date on a hayride she met Leland “lee” Edman. Married in 1948, they lived together happily for 64 years. After the wedding they briefly lived in San Francisco while Lee attended Hastings Law School. Soon, they returned to Fresno and three beautiful artistic daughters were born: Janet, Lynn, and Karen. Verna was always so kind, so interested in people and loved being busy, involved, and helpful. She was an active member of Kappa Kappa Gamma (active and alumni), Junior League, Law League, Fresno Arts Center, Girl Scouts, PTA, Bible Study, and Sewing Club. She also loved her pets and all animals, which made her an excellent docent at the Chaffee Zoo. Verna so enjoyed the many years spent at the family cabin at Huntington Lake. This high energy woman was almost always knitting or sewing, usually a beautiful gift for someone else. One of her dear friends once said “if Verna had enough yarn she would knit a cover for the Empire State Building”. Organic gardening was another healthy passion that put her way ahead of her time. Most of all she loved and adored her husband, family, and friends. “They all make my life really wonderful” she repeated often. After the passing of her husband, Lee, in 2013, Verna spent the last 10 years of her life in Edmonds, Washington. She joined her daughter Janet and husband Chip in their home. As always she was quick to make friends, join a knitting group, church, and Bible study group, got to know neighbors and make friends wherever she went. She also continued her lifelong pattern of adopting stray animals. She found and tamed Hobo, a Norwegian Forest Cat that was homeless and roaming her new neighborhood. Hobo became her constant companion and entertainment. One of Verna’s very last comments was “There’s so many people in the world to love and not enough time.” That was Verna. Please join her family remembering her lovely smile and her warm, welcoming and helpful character. Pancreatic cancer hurried her toward heaven only nine days after diagnosis. There was mercy in this speed, only a few days of struggle and very little pain thanks to the great medical care at Swedish Hospital Edmonds Campus. Our sweet Verna was predeceased by her parents Thomas and Jessie Palmer Catich, her husband Leland “Lee” Edman, and her three day old son Eric Mitchell Edman. She is survived by her daughters Janet (Charles “Chip”) Lind of Edmonds WA, Lynn (Nolan) Gasser of Petaluma CA, and Karen Hartung of Clovis CA. Also surviving are grandchildren: Axel (Miranda) Crossan, Camille Gasser, and Preston Gasser, her sister Aileen Martin, nephews Tom Martin and daughter Alison (Daichi) Hirata, and Dennis (Lindsey) Martin. And some great grands too: Ayla and Phoenix Crossan and Yutaka Hirata. Services are planned for both Edmonds WA and Fresno CA. Saturday March 9th at 11:00 AM at Faith Community Church 10220 238th St SW Edmonds WA 98020 and in May at Belmont Memorial Gardens in Fresno, date TBD
