Edna Davis Poore passed away in her home in Middletown, Indiana on Tuesday, March 19, 2019. She was 92 years, 7 months, and four days old.

Edna was born in August 15, 1926, Keno, Kentucky. She was the 9th of 10 living children born to William Henry Davis and Lydia Emerine Morrow both of Pulaski County, Kentucky. Her siblings included Othel, Arnold, Elbert, Georgia, Margaret, Ruby, Elsie, Junior, and Esther.
