A helpful someone in a hat shot this photograph of a young lady who is identified on the back as “Aunt Edna Storll”. I bought this photograph at an antique store in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore in September 2016.

Edna Mae Storll (1900-1950) was the daughter of German-born William Storll (1847-1924) and Josephine (Sophia) Einsig (1857-1942) whose parents were born in Germany. Josephine’s family was affiliated with the Moravian Church, a fact which which may be reflected in Edna’s attire.

She spent her whole life living with her parents on Pattison Street in York, PA and never married. She was inducted into the York chapter of the General Electric Quarter Century Club in 1945 and was an insulation machine operator at the time of her death. The cause of her early death was a cerebral hemorrhage. She is buried in Mount Rose Cemetery in York and shares a gravestone with her parents (findagrave.com memorial #150111323).
