Edna Rattray Obituary

Edna Mae Rattray (née Diehl)  90, of Schererville, IN went home to be with Jesus on Monday March 4, 2024, surrounded by family.

Edna is survived by 6 children, John Jr. (Jessie) Rattray, Cindy (Jerry) Splitgerber, Judy (Bill) Taylor, Tom Rattray, Sue (Vic) Arcuri, and Cheryl (Rick) Yack; 12 grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren, and 13 great-great-grandchildren, 3 siblings, Betty Jane Fite, Frank (Judy) Diehl, and Dan (Andrea) Diehl, and numerous nieces and nephews. 

Preceded in death by her husband John Sr., children David and Linda, her parents Charles and Marjorie, grandson David Rattray, sisters Margaret, Virginia, Charlene, Lois Christine, Martha, and brothers Bill, George, James, and Paul.

Edna was married to the love of her life for 66 years. She enjoyed crafting, whether it was making something for the next holiday or painting crafts. She also enjoyed shopping with her girls. Edna had the best green thumb and could bring a sick plant back to health looking as beautiful as ever.  

Edna was loving, sweet, and had a heart of gold. She was a life time member of Ross Community Reformed Church and the Women’s Guild. She will be truly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
