A wonderful person passes on

I too became a friend of Edna's through the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children. Always enjoyed her sense of fun mixed into a load of common sense. My memories of hosting her here in South Africa when she decided very spontaneously to explore this part of the world will always be with me - she so enjoyed herself! My condolences to her family - I'm sure you will miss her.
Good memories and thoughts

Edna and I worked together on the WCGTC Council for many years, I got to know her-a lively, mischeveous, bright personality loveding her extended family well. She loved her colours,art & pets but mostly Edna always was 'real', and had great ability to see through things to what was really important, or what people where really trying to do... As a friend, I was many times thankful to her for that.

As a professional, she gave her life to Gifted Children and will be soarly missed in the field.
