EDNA M. EINCK
Edna Mae Einck, the daughter of Paul and Mabel (Tobiason) Oldre, was born July 5, 1932 in Kenneth, Minnesota. She attended country school and completed her education in Magnolia High School graduating in 1950. On September 25, 1950, she was united in marriage to Leon H. Einck in Wilmont, Minnesota where the couple farmed, and Leon drove trucks. The couple moved to Primghar, Iowa in 1958 partnering to create Viessman and Einck Trucking. Leon and Edna went on to establish Einck Trucking which they operated until Leon’s retirement in 1995. While Leon trucked, Edna raised their seven children, and then joined Leon in team-driving. Edna sent many postcards describing her adventures seeing the United States in her “International Hotel”. The couple’s retirement years were spent in Primghar. Leon preceded Edna in death on April 17, 2010. On Thursday, January 16, 2020 Edna passed away unexpectedly at Floyd Valley Healthcare in LeMars, Iowa; reaching the age of 87 years, 6 months and 11 days.
