Edna Krasselt, 85, lifelong resident of the Clearwater Valley community, left us to be with the angels in heaven on Oct. 3, 2018.
Edna grew up on various ranches throughout the valley. In her youth, she rode and broke horses.
The summer of her 16th year of age, she was the Princess of the Grangeville Border Days celebration. She was also invited by Lewiston Roundup officials to be their guest at the Roundup. Travel was long and difficult at that time, so arrangements were made to fly Edna to the event, her first ever plane ride. Her white mare Sandy, that she fondly called Babe, was brought by truck the next day. The adventurous story was often remembered and shared over the years.
Throughout Edna’s lifetime she enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, driving fast cars, boating, floating the river, riding horses, visiting family and friends, crocheting, playing cards, and embroidery. She worked as a CNA and a home health care provider.
Edna is survived by her children Ray Bothum, Martin Bothum, Sharon Bower, and JR Krasselt, her sister Helen Baldwin, and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Edna was preceded in death by her son Cecil Bothum, her parents, brothers Cecil Hunter and Wesley Hunter, and her husbands Earl Krasselt and Harold Duman.
A private service is being arranged by the family.
