Edna Van Leuven passed away peacefully at home on the evening of August 23, 2022 with her devoted son, Douglas by her side. She was born June 20, 1924 to Edna Stokes Hoffman and Ambrose Bernside Hoffman in Philadelphia, PA.

Edna was a devoted mother and wife, a published author, a columnist for the Reno-Gazette and Lahontan Valley News, a Real Estate Agent, a waitress, and doing whatever was needed to help the family. In retirement, her favorite thing was doing her Crewel needle point and
sharing it with family and friends, donating much of it to local charities over the years.

Edna was preceded in death by her parents, sister, Jeanne Stokes Wilson; first husband, Donald Hill, her beloved second husband, Marine Corp Sergeant Ralph Daniel Van Lueven (Van); son, Dean Hill.

Edna was the mother of five sons, Donald (Erelene); Douglas; Dave (Wendy); Dean (Tara); Daniel (Dani); grandmother to eight children and a-great-grandmother of fourteen.

A member of the Eastern Star, her ashes will be buried next to her beloved husband, Van in the Masonic Cemetery in Casson City, NV. Per her wishes there will be no memorial. Instead, Eda requested that you send donations in her name to the local CAPS Churchill Animal
Protection society, or the charity of your choice.

Arrangements are under the direction of The Gardens Funeral Home 2949 Austin Highway Fallon, NV 89406 775-423-8928
