    Edna M. Matyak
    Rossville - Edna M. Matyak, 89, passed away Sunday, November 20, 2016 at the House of Midland Hospice.

    She was born June 28, 1927 at Schuyler, NE., the daughter of Frank and Emma Petr Vavricek. Edna was raised and attended school in the Blue Rapids and Waterville communities.

    She and her husband Joe farmed in the Rossville area where you could find her operating tractors, combines and driving the grain trucks. She always raised a big garden - with no weeds - and shared many jars of homemade canned vegetables and pickles with her family. Edna enjoyed flower gardening and was happy to share some of her plants to make other yards pretty. Everyone looked forward to her homemade kolaces and pies. Edna loved needlecrafts, sewing, crocheting and she was an avid quilter.

    On September 26, 1950 she was united in marriage to Joe W. Matyak in Topeka. He preceded her in death; she was also preceded in death by her son, Jim, brother, Bud Vavricek and sisters, Lydia Korte and Betty Baker McKenna.

    Mrs. Matyak is survived by two daughters, Donna (Vlad) Johnson, Wamego and Judy (Neil) Carlson, Topeka; her sister, Alice Delavergne, in Virginia; six grandchildren, Julie Loats, Casey Johnson, Trevor Johnson, Kristen Weeks, Melanie Brock and
    Jeramy Matyak and seven great-grandchildren, Louise, Joe, Daniel, and Betsy Loats, Leah and Hana Johnson and Lucinda Weeks.

    Graveside services were held at 11:00 A.M. Wednesday, November 23, 2016 at the Czech-Moravan Cemetery north of Rossville. Mrs. Matyak lied in state from 2:00 until 5:00 P.M.
