2B Wednesday, Dec. 24, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter VITAL STATISTICS OBITUARIES Ednah D. Biel Ednah D. Biel, former resident of Quincy, passed away peacefully at the age of 92 in Lodi on Nov. 11, 2014. Ednah was born Aug. 6, 1922, in Galt, to William and Lucy Coupe. She was the eldest of four children, and is survived by one brother, Harold Coupe, and his wife, June, of Brookings, Oregon. Ednah was preceded in death by her loving husband Alfred Biel, her brother Albert Coupe (married to Colletta), of Yuba City, and sister Bertha Litz (Herbert), of Lodi. Ednah and her husband Al loved the rural life style of the Quincy area. They began by tent camping at Red Bridge on the Middle Fork Feather River in the late 1940s. Later, in the mid-1950s, they purchased 20 acres along Willow Creek with an unfinished cabin, which is currently the Partlow residence. After several years of refurbishing the cabin was ready to become their future retirement home. Only after the damaging winter of 1996 and age issues did they move closer to town. Ednah enjoyed anything that put her in the outdoors. She was an avid trout angler and deer hunter. Fly-fishing Nelson Creek and hunting the ridges above the Middle Fork were just two of her passions. Looking for arrowheads on the lava beds above their cabin and the river was also a favorite pastime. She surely had the pioneer spirit, and will be truly missed. Services were private.
