Edna P. Sapp was born on May 19, 1931 in Palmyra, Missouri to Joseph L. and Laverta B. (Gramley) Rubemeyer and passed away on Thursday, November 3, 2011 in Billings. Edna married William H. (Bill) Sapp on August 6, 1948 in Billings. They had three wonderful children—Linda, Kathy, and Jonathan and was “my other mother” to grandson Shane Wismeyer and her “favorite Turk” Nevzat Nergiz.

Edna enjoyed her work. For 13 years she was a cashier at Anthony’s Department Store in Billings then spent 5 years as a counselor at the Diet Center before retiring.

Edna loved working crossword puzzles and “shopping until she dropped”. She loved reading and would burn the midnight oil just to finish that book that she “just couldn’t put down”. While their son Jonathan was in the Navy, Edna and Bill would travel to all of the places he was stationed. Most of all she loved being a mother and grandmother. She was an excellent cook and loved cooking and baking southern style.

Edna is survived by her children Linda (Bruce) MacIntyre, Kathy (Tim) Hendricks and Jonathan (Annie Schwehr ) Sapp; her “other son” Nevzat (Hava) Nergiz; grandchildren Shane (Jennifer) Wismeyer, Jay (Morgan) Hendricks, Jeremy (Janine) Hendricks, and Tyler Sapp; great grandchildren Jordan and Logan Wismeyer, Ariel and Darien Hendricks, Josh and Cory Godsey; and great-great grandson Tony Godsey. Edna is also survived by her cousins Faye Roller and Warren Gramley who she considered her sister and brother. She was preceded in death by Bill, her husband of 60 years, and her mother and father.

At her request, a private burial is planned at Sunset Memorial Gardens on Monday, November 7, 2011. A memorial service for family and friends will be held at 2:00 p.m., Monday, November 7, at Michelotti-Sawyers Mortuary, 1001 Alderson Avenue, Billings.

Should friends desire to send memorials, please consider RiverStone Hospice (Horizon Hospice Home), P.O. Box 1562, Billings, MT 59103, the American Diabetes Association, or the charity of one’s choice.
