On Sunday, March 18, 2018, Edna M. (Cutter) Paskun, 98, of Cumberland, formerly of Lonaconing, passed away peacefully at home with her son close by her side. Edna was preceded in death by her loving husband, Charles F., of Westernport, her parents John M. and Nellie (Duckworth) Cutter of Lonaconing, her sister Lillian (Harrison) Fuller of Keyser, her sister Helen (Raymond) Westfall of Cleveland, and her sister and brother-in-law, Anna (Paskun) and Monroe Pierce of Westernport, and her brother and sister-in-law, William and Irene Paskun, also of Westernport. Edna was also preceded in death by a niece and several nephews. Edna lost her dearest and closest friends Marie Burns and Dorthea Keating, both of Lonaconing, June Shrook of Cumberland and her special friend Elmira Tripton also of Cumberland. Edna is survived by her son Charles of Cumberland, with whom she resided. She is also survived by her “baby” sister Carole (John) Wilson of Lonaconing and her husband’s first cousin Tekla Alex of Moran Manor in Westernport. As a young woman, Edna was employed by the West Virginia Pulp and Paper Corp and later at the Celanese Corp. After WWII, Edna met and eventually married her husband Charles. After six months of marriage, Charles suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and died leaving Edna pregnant with their son. After she raised her son, they moved to Cumberland where she became employed at the Manse Corp. For the last 15 years of her working career. She worked for the Allegany County Board of Education as a teacher’s aide. After retiring, Edna enjoyed trips to New York City and Ocean City where her sister Carole and brother-in-law managed a hotel. She enjoyed several bus trips to Myrtle Beach, SC. She also enjoyed a trip with her family to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Edna traveled cross-country with her son and his friend, Nancy Shingleton of Keyser. After visiting many national parks, Edna got to pay a surprise visit to her twin nieces, Jan and Fran, in Portland, Oregon. She then traveled to the Oregon Coast before heading home and seeing more sights. Edna was Presbyterian by faith having been a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Lonaconing and later, the First Presbyterian Church in Cumberland. She was a Christian, but didn’t wear her religion or her politics on her sleeve. Edna will be greatly missed by her family and friends, especially her friend, Merry Dean and her son’s good friend, Dennis Tifton, both of Cumberland. Many thanks go out to Dr. Gupta and his office staff for their kindness and excellent care of Edna over the years.
