Edna Mae Fowler Baldyga, 89, of Louisville, Ky., died Jan. 11, 2013, at the Episcopal Church Home.
Born in Newberry, on Jan.19, 1923, she graduated from Newberry College before working for Seagram’s Distillery in the 1940s. For more than 20 years she was a special ed teacher at the Binet School in Louisville.
Red will be remembered for her style, creativity, wit and bourbon brownies. Her humor could light up a room. Her devotion and attention were always to family first.

Edna was predeceased by her husband, Walter V. Baldyga; and her son, Paul.
She is survived by her children, Stephanie Stagg (Robert), Philip, Amy and Julie Baldyga; two granddaughters, Jamie Patrick (Mark) and Stacie Nielsen; and two great-grandsons, Vincent and Jake.
