Edna Louise Storey

March 19, 1942 - June 18, 2020

Edna Storey

Edna Louise Storey, 78, of Nederland, residing at Colonial Pines Nursing Center, San Augustine, passed away June 18, 2020, at Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital, Nacogdoches, due to COVID-19. She was born on March 19, 1942, in Beaumont, to Marguerite Satcher Carter and Edward Alphonso Carter.

Edna’s pride in life was her family, only wanting the best for them. She did what she had to do and made many sacrifices to love and protect her children. Edna loved Sunday dinners and big holiday gatherings. When it came to decorating, no detail was left undone. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were very important to her, and she enjoyed sharing her time with them. Edna also loved nature, gardening, and animals.

Edna was always seen with a smile on her face and would have never been caught complaining. She loved her pink nail polish, lilies, and hyacinth flowers. She had a strong faith in God and His word. If she wasn’t listening to sermons on TV, she was listening to them in the car. Although Edna never wanted to leave her children, her faith was such that she was ready to go and not suffer. What a beautiful site to be in God’s embrace.

Survivors include her daughters, Debbie Richard and Donna J. DiBattista, both of Nederland; son, Brad W. Morgan, of Shelbyville; sister, Mary Ellen Stepherson, of Nederland; grandchildren, Amy Wofford; Ryan Chenault; Brian Morgan; Trey Duvall; and Hannah Richard; great-grandchildren, Kristin Rutty; Katie Rutty; Ashlee Chenault; and Skylar Morgan.

She is preceded in death by her parents; son, Christopher Steve Hampton; and nephew, Ed Stepherson.

    Edna and I graduated from Nederland High in 1960. We were good friends! Many times I would take her to the St. Charles rec. center for teen dances. She and Jane Richardson were best friends. There were times when then we rode down to dance at the "Bee Hive" in Port Arthur, another teen dance. She was so much fun and ever so pretty. I am so sorry to learn of her passing. May you RIP my dear Edna.

    I knew Edna during the years i was married to Ken Stephersom. She always had a big smile and was as sweet as they come. My condolences go out to the entire family.

    I can only hope to be as great of a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother as my mom was. She set the bar high for us all. But I take comfort that I will have my angel on my shoulder guiding me.❤️
