The following obituary was composed by Edna’s family.

Edna Anne Baxindine of Horsham, Pa. died Sunday, December 4, 2022, after a long illness. She was 82 years old.

She was born in Philadelphia, the daughter of the late Frank S. Voce and Edna C. O’Donnell.

She is survived by her son, John W. Baxindine of Horsham; her brother, Frank E. Voce (Anna) of Quakertown; half-sister Kathleen Sabaski of Watertown, Tenn., and her mother, Kathleen Voce of Quakertown; stepdaughter Sherry L. Gill of Oreland; a step-grandson; and many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Her husband, William F. Baxindine, Jr., of Horsham, and stepson, Robert W. Baxindine (Judy) of Rixeyville, Va., preceded her in death.

Educated at Temple (B.A. ’65) and Rider (M.A. ’81), Edna began her career as a music teacher in the Centennial School District before becoming a counselor at the Bureau of Employment Security in Hatboro, where she met her husband. In 1973 she transferred to the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, where she counseled clients with psychiatric issues. Subsequently, she assisted adults with substance-use disorders (at the Bucks County Council on Alcoholism) as well as troubled children (at Wordsworth Academy, Penn Foundation, and Baptist Children's Services) before returning to O.V.R., from which she retired in 2004.

A talented and devoted musician, Edna sang in the Temple University Choir under Robert Page, performing at Carnegie Hall, the Academy of Music, and the United Nations. Her many friends will remember Edna for her warm companionship and sharp wit.

Relatives and friends were invited to her funeral service Thurs. 8 P.M. at Wetzel and Son Funeral Home, 501 N. Easton Rd., Willow Grove, where friends were invited to call from 6 to 8 P.M. Friends were also invited to her graveside service Fri. 11 A.M. at Whitemarsh Memorial Park, Limekiln Pike, Prospectville.

Flowers are welcome, as are donations in Edna’s memory to the American Nurses Foundation.
