Sister in Christ,
We are saddened to learn of Ms Marable's passing. I was a coworker of Edna's at the Ulster County Health Dept. She was always so professional and treated others with kindness. My husband, Ron Augustine shared a special memory of Edna... She was his very first customer when he opened his nursery. How excited he was to make that first sale! Thank you Edna for the beautiful memories. Our sincere condolences to her family.
Eileen Katatsky and Ronald Augustine
I always looked up and respected this woman. May she rest in peace
I was very saddened to hear of Edna’s passing. I worked with her for many years at the county health department. She was the best. She always had a smile and a calming demeanor. In the years since I left the health department I’ve often thought of her. Even though she’s now gone, I know that her love and spirit lives on and will always be with you all. May she rest in peace, and peace be with you all at this extremely difficult time. ❤️
