Edna Schiefelbein, 86, of Eau Claire, passed away on Sept 3rd. She was born on September 19, 1932 in Philadelphia, PA to Jacob and Edna Kleiner. Edna raised her sons as a single parent; she remarried in 1982 to Norman Schiefelbein. Edna worked for many years at JH Larsen Electric and alongside Norm at their business, Action Tax Service.
Edna enjoyed playing board games with her family and granddaughters, especially cards where her rarely seen competitive side came out. The only license that Edna ever held was that of an Elevator Operator in Philly; however, she earned “Platinum Elite” status on the Eau Claire Transit System and enjoyed visiting with the drivers and other riders as she commuted to work, the grocery store etc.
Edna was a humble and compassionate person who saw the good in everyone. She had special love for animals, always having a dog or cat in her home.
She is survived by her sons Jerry (Brenda) Hagen of Eau Claire, Mark (Julie) Hagen of Oregon, WI, granddaughters Katrina Hagen, Helen (John) Narlock, Sydney (Jake) Dichsen & Shelbey Hagen.
Edna was preceded in death by her parents; brother Jack, sisters Marge and Anne and husband Norm.
