In Remembrance: Edith enjoyed being a great-great-grandma

A story parents and grandparents often tell, "I used to walk to school uphill both ways, in the snow, with no shoes..." meant a little more to Edith Korn, as she wasn't completely joking when she told her children and grandchildren the tale. Korn and her two sisters braved a three mile walk to school in the deep Montana snow, according to her daughter Dorothy Perkins. "When the snow was too deep, their dad would pick them up in the wagon. Sometimes the snow was deeper than they were tall," Perkins said. Korn, a Nampa resident, died Feb. 9 at age 94.
