Edna Earle McBryar, 103, died at Life Care of Collegedale on October 9, 2019.
Edna was a longtime East Brainerd resident and member of Brainerd Hills Church of God. She was a loving grandmother and great-grandmother who was a wonderful southern cook and kept a beautiful flower and vegetable garden.
