Peoria- Edna Rickard, age 88, of Peoria, passed away peacefully at 12:05 AM on Friday, September 13, 2019 at Generations at Peoria surrounded by her family.

Born June 08, 1931 in Florence, Alabama, she was the daughter of Macklin and Nora (Wallace) Skipworth. She married Donald J. Rickard in 1959. He preceded her in death on October 09, 1975. Edna loved being outdoors and tending to her flowers. She enjoyed spending time with her four-legged companion, Levi, listening to country music, drinking coffee and occasionally breaking out in dance.
