Edna Rose (Carver) Nix, longtime resident of Wilton, died July 15, 2017 at the age of 87.
Born on August 16, 1929 in El Dorado County where she lived until she married the love of her life Robert Lee Nix on November 15, 1948.
Once they settled in Wilton, Edna was a homemaker raising their six boys. As an avid gardener, she hosted many a garden party showing off her beautiful flowers - that are still maintained today. As an active member of the Wilton Bible Church, Edna sang in the choir from the 1950s, through 1970s and was extremely active working in the nursery (when her boys were young) and teaching Sunday school.
In later years, after all the boys were grown, Edna and Robert enjoyed traveling in their motor home visiting many of the states across the United States.
