Edna Fannie Scholl 1895 - 1919

Edna Fannie Scholl was born July 9, 1895 to Frederick and Fannie Scholl in Arago, NB. She was the 10th of 11 children. Her twin, Edgar Fred, died three weeks after his birth. Growing up on a farm with plenty of older brothers and sisters must have been great fun but lots of work as well. Edna helped with the chickens; feeding them fruit, vegetables, grains and table scraps. She most likely collected the eggs daily. As she got older she must have taken on more difficult jobs like caring for the horses or helping her grandfather as he was constructing barns. When she was about 15, she said goodby to farm life because her parents took her to Portland where her father "retired" and built houses with Edna's older brothers. At some point during her teenage years she took a horrible fall which resulted in serious injuries. For a time she was confined to a wheel chair. Edna died at 23 years 9 months 9 days from the effects of the injury she sustained in the fall years earlier according to family members. The Oregon Daily Journal says she died of "valvular heart disease." Did the fall somehow effect her heart? If so how can a fall effect her heart valves? We don't know but Edna died 8 April 1919 and was buried in the Rose City Cemetery, Portland. Three years later Edna's mother, Fannie, was buried next to her and 10 years after that, her father, Frederick is laid to rest at the same spot.
