NOV. 28, 1931 — DEC. 2, 2013

KIRKVILLE —

Patricia June Waggoner, 82, of Kirkville, passed away peacefully Dec. 2, 2013, at home.

She was born Nov. 28, 1931, in Oskaloosa to John Franklin and Mildred Mae Furnald Edwards. She married Harold D. Waggoner on July 2, 1950, in Oskaloosa. He passed away on Oct. 22, 1981.
