At the time, I worked at Social Security and we were inviting successful, inspirational women to speak to us of women's issues. Edna graciously accepted my invitation and gave a wonderful presentation; we were probably the only district office to have the "Boss's" mother speak and my co-workers were impressed that I had a connection to the HHS Secretary! Donna-I remember Edna saying she was glad she had gotten your teeth straightened whenever she saw you on TV!
Her funeral this morning was beautiful and seemed to capture her spirit. May she rest in peace.
SOPHISTICATION WILLOW BASKET SPRAY was sent by Jennifer Shalala Douglass, Matthew Shalala .
Edna will always remain an inspiration to us all for a life lived to the fullest. With deepest sympathy from Jennifer Shalala Douglass, Matthew Shalala, and Nancy Shalala & their families
