Edna was born in Knox on Sept. 1, 1929, the daughter of the late Clyde and Delphina (Stimpson) Elkins.

She left home at a young age, moving to Waterville and went to work at the Diamond Match Factory. She later met and married her husband, John. They lived in Union and built their own home from trees on their land. This is where she devoted her time raising

animals. She loved her dogs and horses. Edna was an avid deer hunter and liked to go fishing. She would often be found with her sister digging fiddleheads and dandelion greens.

She was predeceased by her husband, John L. Blake; and sisters, Mavis and Ruth.

She is survived by her brother, Jerald Elkins of Searsport; and many nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 2, at Knox Ridge Cemetery in Knox, with Pastor Bill Lawrence officiating.

The family would like to thank the folks at Woodlands of Rockland and especially Michelle, and Beacon Hospice as well.
