Edna Ruth Sager, age 93, passed away Wednesday, November 2, 2011, at her granddaughter’s home in Gillette, Wyoming. At her request cremation has taken place.
Edna Sager was born June 30, 1918, in Sundance, Wyoming, the daughter of Benjamin H. and Mae E. (Banks) Justice. She attended school and graduated from Sundance High School. Edna was employed as a typing clerk for The Fish Genetics Lab at Ranch A near Beulah, Wyoming, for fifteen years.
