Edna Rose Amstad was born in Gresham on May 28, 1928 to Adolph and Edna Amstad, joining a brother, Adolph John. A month before her 16th birthday, her mother gave birth to her younger brother, Carl. She attended Kelso Grade School and Sandy High School, graduating in 1946. On June 14, 1947 she married Wilbert Lee (Mike) Hite. They raised six children in Sandy who all attended Sandy Schools. Edna was a homemaker when her children were younger and afterward worked for Clackamas County Head Start for many years as a cook, nutrition coordinator and preschool teaching assistant. Her husband died in 1990, and she moved to Carpinteria, CA to help with her grandchildren, always returning to Oregon for yearly family reunions and other occasions. After thirty years, she returned to Oregon and chose to live at Vineyard Place, an independent living facility where her good friend Davie also resided. She lived there for 2 years until health issues caused her to move to Meadowlark Adult Care Home, where she passed away. Edna loved her family and friends and enjoyed traveling with them. She visited Europe and many places in the U.S. She is survived by her 6 children: Nancy (Hartmut), Bill (Debbie), Mike, Terry, Debbie (Ric) and Rex, 10 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandchild. She was predeceased by her husband, Mike, grandson Seth and brothers Adolph and Carl, and daughter-n-law, Libby. She was a loving and supportive mom and friend, and will be missed by all who knew her. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Sandy Historical Society
