Edna Emma Broadhead Russell, 104, peacefully returned to her Father in Heaven on Mother’s Day, May 8, 2011.
She was born June 14, 1906, to Ernest Willard Broadhead and Ellen Gorena Bruun. Her earliest memories were of growing up in the beautiful Mancos Valley in Colorado. Her family moved to Salt Lake City while she was in grade school. Music played a large role in her life and she and her sisters were in high demand as a singing trio throughout the valley.
