Edith Eileen (Brummund) Stanke was born at her family's home on May 1, 1948 to R.C. and Linda (Moll) Brummund. She grew up near Trout Brook, near Miesville, Minnesota the 5th child in a family of 9 and was a 1966 graduate of Cannon Falls High School. Edith was employed with the State of Minnesota for several years in assisting children that were being placed in foster care. In the mid 1970's she started working for the Cannon Falls High School where she served in a variety of different positions and enjoyed those she worked with. In 1997 she returned to work with the state in child services as a court liaison where she was employed until October of 2013. She loved spending time with her family especially her precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Edith enjoyed travelling to a variety of places but avoided bridges and tunnels when possible. She was an excellent cookie baker and collected cookie jars through the years. Christmas was her favorite time of the year which compelled her to decorate several rooms in her house with a different theme.
