STEVENSVILLE - Edna Dora Kostenick, 90, passed away Monday, March 12, 2012, at the Edgewood Vista in Missoula.

She was born April 17, 1921, in Whitetail, the daughter of Jesse Wiley and Hazel (Dunn) Wiley. She was the ninth of 12 children.

Edna graduated from Whitetail High School and attended North Central Bible Institute in Minneapolis for a short time. Edna also worked as a nursing trainee for the old hospital in Scobey.

Edna married Jackson Wayne Storms and to this union two daughters were born, Carolyn and Joan.

Jackson died in January 1951, leaving Edna and the girls alone. To provide for them, Edna took on work sewing and also worked at the Tande grocery store in Scobey as a clerk and also a butcher.

In 1956, Edna married "her handsome bachelor," Paul G. Kostenick, who proposed to her in a beautiful field of wheat on his farm north of Scobey. Paul was Edna's "perfect gentleman" who took over and raised Carolyn and Joan as his own daughters. At this time, Edna became a full-time homemaker. In 1958, Edna gave birth to a son, Paul Jr. Paul Sr. and Edna were married for a very happy 47 years. Paul Sr. passed on in January 2004.

Edna was a very creative person. She was not only an expert seamstress, but an expert quilter who knitted and crocheted many works of art. Edna also painted and sketched as well as inventing a process for making parchment paper that she combined with dried flowers to create beautiful cards, which she gave to all of her friends and relatives.

Edna was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Hazel Wiley; and sisters, Fern, Hazel and Jean; brothers, Harold, Herbert, Jesse, Darrell, Raymond and Merle; her husbands, Jackson Storms and Paul Kostenick Sr.; and great-grandson, Grant Pederson.

Edna is survived by her children, Carolyn (Conrad Sr.) Eckert, Joan (Richard) Thompson and Paul (Cindy) Kostenick Jr.; grandchildren, Joanie (Steve) Pederson, Barbara (Tom Hoffman) Eckert, Jacquie (Russell) Skadberg, Conrad "Chris" (Tonya) Eckert, Sheri (Shawn) Catterlin, Ricki Thompson, Jacob Kostenick and Kristen Kostenick; great-grandchildren, Racheal Pederson (Kevin) McCoy, Jothanael, Tanessa and Taeliahnna Skadberg, Jamie and Kylie Eckert, Shawna and Steven Catterlin, and Scott and Marissa Thompson. Ednas's first great-great grandchild, Kimberly LaRae Ripple (daughter of Shawna) was born Feb. 29, 2012.

Our mother has gone to be with Jesus. We will miss her terribly, but we are so happy for her. Her reward must be phenomenal! She spent her whole life sharing Jesus with everyone she met. We love you mom! Enjoy your rewards!

A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 15, at the Light of the Valley Assembly of God Church in Stevensville. Interment will follow in the Carlton Cemetery
