Character: Edna Ramsay Actor: Jessica Noad
The patience of a saint
Iím sure Edna must have been a very patient and generous woman waiting all those years for Dan to propose
. Even Madge didn't realise they weren't married! Edna had what you might call a quiet strength. Dan may have carried on as though he was king of his own castle, but maybe thatís just because Edna let him.
Madge told me once that when it came down to the big decisions between her parents it was usually Edna that prevailed. I donít think that ever changed really. Dan would like to claim that it was his idea to give the house in Brisbane to Charlene
. But Iím told it might have come from Edna first. Charlene and Scott live there to this day.
The blushing bride
On the day she was married to Dan, some fifty years after meeting him, you could see a bit of a smile of victory on her face. I donít think she was ever going to miss out on that experience. She just had to bide her time and wait until Dan was ready. And they say I dither about!!
