Edna Van Sise Obituary

Edna Van Sise, 90, of Copake NY and formerly of Wingdale NY, passed away peacefully on Monday October 31, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. Born on April 9, 1932 in Mount Kisco, New York, she was the daughter of the late William Lane and Edna Terwilliger (Sisson). 

Edna grew up and attended school in Pleasantville NY, where at the age of 12, she met the love of her life and eternal soulmate, George Van Sise. George and Edna were inseparable and their love for one another flourished as time passed. On February 25, 1950, in Mount Pleasant, NY, Edna and George exchanged their vows and one passionate kiss, which lead to 72 years of marriage; 7 decades and 2 years of laughter, 864 months of happiness, 26,295 days of wisdom, and most importantly 631,128 hours of memories. Mr. Van Sise survives at home.  

Edna loved wearing matching shirts with her love, George, collecting dolls, rescuing chihuahuas, gardening, trips to Lake George, spending time and holidays with family, raising and fostering children and being the best Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother and kind hearted, caring and compassionate woman that she could ever be. Edna, although gone, will never be forgotten and will be truly missed by many!
