Very sorry to have heard of the death of “Edna DeVeaux” who moved along with her husband to Jacksonville many years ago. Edna was a member of Saint Agnes Episcopal Church, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and worked as a secretary at Dunbar Elementary. She was a kindergarten Sunday school teacher at St. Agnes. She is the sister of Richard “Rocky” DeVeaux. Mrs. Harriet Outen is her aunt whom she lived with for many years. Rest in peace, Edna.
