Mrs. Edberg was born in Brooklyn, New York, on April 1, 1937 to Shirley and Irv Ostroy. She moved with her family to Tucson at the age of 9. She lived in Tucson for 45 years, then moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and was a resident there for 18 years. She graduated from Tucson High School (Class of 1955) and began her undergraduate studies at the University of Arizona until a suitor, Mort Edberg, lured her away to marry and start a family. After raising her three children, Mrs. Edberg worked in several upscale department stores as a sales associate over many years. Her interests included chronicling social gatherings with her camera and traveling to Israel every year to visit her brother and sister-in-law and their five children. Although her quality of life was affected due to a stroke she suffered in Florida nine years ago, she moved to Henderson and lived a full life there.
Survivors include her children, Beth (Fiona) Edberg), Janet (Kent) Wellish, and Steven (Amy) Edberg; brother, Pesach, and sister-in-law, Esther, of Jerusalem; and five grandchildren.
Interment took place at Evergreen Cemetery.
