Edna Mae Pennington Winn, age 82, of Ballard, passed away September 7, 2023, at the Uintah Basin Medical Center. She had a long struggle with congestive heart failure and a short one with cancer, which she fought valiantly to the end.
She was born March 13, 1941, in Oxford, Colorado, to Edwin Henry and Barbara Mae Pennington. She married Franklin Charles Winn on September 12, 1961, in Vernal, Utah, and was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on April 28, 1964, after becoming a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Edna had worked for many years as a teacher’s aide for the resource program in elementary schools of the Uintah School District and the San Juan New Mexico School District. She enjoyed cooking, making crafts, sewing, and gardening vegetables and flowers. She was very active in various church callings including serving for 8 years in the Vernal Temple and was passionate about family history and sharing her testimony of the Savior.
The most important thing to her was her family. She loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and often got down on the floor with them to be at their level. Even in her bed at the hospital her great-grandchildren were snuggled up to her. She was greatly loved and will be deeply missed.
Edna is survived by her eternal sweetheart, Frank, of just a few days short of 62 years of marriage, of Ballard; her children, C. Frank (Marilyn) Winn, Boneta; Edwin (Sherry) Winn, Roosevelt; Ryan (Sandra) Winn, Brush, Colorado; Barbara (Ryan) VanDyke, Clearfield; LeAnn (Dillon) Moffat, Afton, Wyoming; 33 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren; her brother Bob (Doria) Pennington, Brush, Colorado; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Edwin & Barbara; a brother, Claude Pennington; and two sisters-in-law, Gale & Helen Pennington.
