Edna Soma Giddings

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4

God saw her getting tired, a cure was not to be.
He wrapped her in his loving arms
And whispered ‘Come with me.’
She suffered much in silence, her spirit did not bend.
She faced her pain with courage, until the very end.
She tried so hard to stay with us
But her fight was not in vain,
God took her to His loving home
And freed her from the pain.

It is with deep sorrow that we, the Giddings and Soma families, announce the home going of our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Edna Soma Giddings. Hers, was truly a home going. Surrounded by her loving children and grandchildren, she breathed her last breath from this world to inhale the sweet air of eternity; where her Lord and Savior Jesus, stroked the furrows of her brow, and enfolded her in his out stretched arms of Grace and Love. There to meet her, were her husband Paramount Chief Moses N. Giddings of Sanoyea Chiefdom, and her children who predecease her. This sad event occurred on the evening of Wednesday, January 13th, 2019 around 6:20 at North Memorial Hospital; Minneapolis, Minnesota.
