Edna F. Seilonen

Edna Florence (Mattson) Seilonen, 97, formerly of CT and FL, passed away on Monday, May 4, 2015 at Hartford Hospital. She was the loving wife of the late Charles Seilonen for 56 years.

Edna was born May 16, 1917 in Harrison, ME to the late John and Jennie (Kontio) Mattson. She was a former member of the First Lutheran Church in Southington for nearly 25 years.

Edna is survived by her sister, Viola Payson of Machias, ME; daughters and their husbands, Sandra and James Anderson of Southington, CT and Viola and George Taylor of Marion, MA. She is also survived by five grandchildren and their spouses; Deborah (Joseph) Hukill of Burlington, CT; Ingrid Briggs of Las Vegas, NV, Alison (Skip) Urmson of Santa Rosa, CA; Andrew (Colleen Taylor) of Chico, CA and Jeffrey Taylor of N.
