Edna E. (Berry) Hannum, 90, wife of the late Richard E. Hannum, of Audubon, PA, died on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at Jennersville Hospital in West Grove, PA.

Both were trained, talented singers, and they performed as soloists, and in duets together, in numerous venues. Additionally, they both enjoyed travel, and cruised to numerous countries. They were also accomplished ballroom dancers, and continued to enjoy that activity together until they were both octogenarians.

Edna was a member of St. Peter's Pikeland United Church of Christ, Chester Springs, PA, where she sang soprano in the choir.

Edna is survived by three children, son Charles Hannum and wife Jeanne (Fisher), daughter Rebecca (Hannum) Buckley and husband Ed, and daughter Judith (Hannum) Rice; eight grandchildren, Kristin (Hannum) Brenner and husband Michael, Joseph Hannum, Mary Hannum, Michael Hannum, Alison Quinn Hannum, Elizabeth Hammond,  Tyler Hammond and Kyle Hammond; and three great-grandchildren, Kassidy Hannum, Josh Brenner and Ben Brenner.
