Edna Moeller (nee Ready) of La Farge passed away on July 28, 2018 at her daughter's home in Waukesha.


 Sample ImageShe was born on July 14, 1926 in Eastman to Alvin and Elnora (Kramer) Ready.  She attended Eastman State Graded School and graduated from Wauzeka High School.  She married Willard Moeller on December 12, 1945 and they moved to his family's farm on Swatek Ridge where they lived until 1980.  They moved to their retirement hobby farm near La Farge after that.  Edna worked for a short time at Gudgeon's and also volunteered at the Kickapoo Haven Nutrition Center.  She eventually became head cook and manager, enjoying her work until her retirement at age 80. 

         Edna enjoyed quilting, knitting and crocheting that included making circular rugs from recycled plastic bags.  She loved to try new recipes, baked delicious desserts and enjoyed watching the Food Channel.  She enjoyed watching the birds at her backyard feeders; enjoyed the blooms of her irises, gladiolas, violas, peonies, geraniums, marigolds and zinnias in her flower beds.  She liked fishing for pan fish, doing crossword puzzles, watching the antics of her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and playing Rack-O, Phase Ten, Scrabble and Boggle with anyone who would join her.  She played her last Boggle game on July 25.  She lived long enough to see her beloved Chicago Cubs win the World Series.
