Edna Porter, a member of the Florida Association for Home and Community Education’s Narcoossee Club since 1978, celebrated her 100th birthday on September 3rd.
During her 48 years with the Narcoossee organization, Edna has served in many ways, including making Ouch Dolls for kids who need vaccinations at the Florida Health Department in Osceola County and participating in the FAHCE Annual Achievement Day. Whether it’s weaving a rug, flower arranging, or showing off her horticultural skills, Edna has always been involved, and numerous times has taken home Best of Class and Best of Show awards.
Edna was born in Sharon, Ohio, married to Ralph Porter for 67 years, and had three children. During the war while her husband served overseas, she learned to drive while nine-months pregnant so she could drive an Army truck. Edna still has a valid driver’s license and has never had an accident or even a ticket.
At 100, Edna still practices her hobby of gardening, loving her pets, and is well known in her neighborhood for walking her dog while riding her tricycle.
Edna loves to give back to the Osceola County community and and is an awesome example of how to stay young, serve others, and make a positive difference even at the age of 100!
