She ran stalls and made items for fund raisers for Barbara McArthur. She loved cats. He nickname at school was "Magpie" (because she was always talking) Her nicknames when she was training were "Tuck" and "Matches" because of her skinny legs. Her Victorian friends called her "Ted"
      She was a double certificated registered nurse and trained midwife. She did not start nursing until she was 27 years old because she had to help on the farm, working hard like a man. Edna started training a Balaklava in 1935 and after two years transferred to The Royal Adelaide Hospital in 1939. From there she did midwifery training at the Queen's Home (later named the Queen Victoria Hospital) 1939-41.
