Edna May Wagner McBride left this life on February 22, 2015 at age 88 to begin her journey home to her husband and sweetheart Truman.\n\nEdna May was born in her family home in Provo, Utah on June 10, 1926. She was the youngest of four children born to John William Henry and Leah Myrtle Forbush Wagner. She attended the first through third grades at Page Elementary School, grades four through six at the BY Training School, junior high and high school at Lincoln High in Orem, Utah, and later graduated from Wasatch Academy in Mt Pleasant, Utah. She walked to school every day until the sixth grade when she got her first bicycle.\n\nAs a girl she was a Girl Scout, a member of the 4-H, and an active member of Job's Daughters, fulfilling the office of Honored Queen. She spent her summers picking strawberries, raspberries and cherries, but she did not enjoy babysitting.\n\nEdna May loved the outdoors- hiking up Rock Canyon, sleigh riding, ice skating, roller skating, and skiing. At age 16 she got her first job working in the stockroom at Woolworth's. After graduation from Wasatch she started work as a bookkeeper for State Bank in Provo (known today as Central Bank), where she made lifelong friendships with several lady co-workers with whom she was still friends some 60 years later.\n\nIn 1946 at a ladies' aid meeting, her mother, Leah, and Leah's friend Ruth Mason, arranged for Edna May to meet Truman, Ruth's son, while he was home on leave from the Navy. Truman soon became her best friend and sweetheart and in May 1947 they were engaged. Truman proposed to her in a taxi cab at the Rio Grand train station. They were married September 15, 1947 in the Masonic Temple in Provo, Utah. Together they had three children: Trudy Lea, Daniel Edward and Karen Ruth.. Edna May enjoyed raising their children. She made and sewed their clothing, was an avid gardener growing beautiful flowers, and she spent many summers canning fruit. She loved to cook and try out new recipes, and she had a talent for crocheting.\n\nAfter raising their children, Truman and Edna May began the next journey of their lives. They traveled around the United States in their fifth-wheel trailer for the next 13 years. They met and made many friends in their travels and were members of the International Good Sams, the Trail Dusters and, finally, the Happy Hobos. The people that they met in their travels were like family, and until her death, Edna May still joined her friends weekly for lunch and games. Edna May loved to be with her family and friends. Her favorite things were traveling, camping, being with family, going out to lunch and playing cards. At the time of her death she was a member of the Community Presbyterian Church of American Fork, Utah.\n\nShe is survived by her daughters, Trudy, Karen (Keven) Wilson and son Daniel (Deb) McBride, six grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren. Her parents preceded her in death, as did her sweetheart Truman, sister Helen A. Bowman, and brothers Earl W. and H. George Wagner. Edna May's family would like to thank her doctors, Arron Weaver and Mark Boyack, along with the staff of Lake Ridge Senior Living and Symbi Hospice Care for the loving care they all gave to Mom.\n\nA celebration memorial of her life will be held on March 7, 2015 at 10 a.m. at Olpin Family Mortuary, 494 South 300 East, Pleasant Grove, Utah. Interment will be in the Pleasant Grove City Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.olpinmortuary.com.
