Edna A. Morlok

Lansing, Michigan

Edna A. Morlok went to be with her Lord and beloved parents, Carl and Sadie Morlok, on April 10, 2015. Edna will long be remembered as a loving, pleasant person. She was dearly loved and will be missed very much by her only remaining sister, Sarah Morlok Cotton.

Edna was one member of the very famous Morlok Quadruplets born May 19, 1930 to Carl and Sadie Morlok at Edward W. Sparrow Hospital after which she was named, and made world-wide acclaim.

She did professional stage entertaining in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania in the early years of her life. She was a graduate of Lansing Eastern High School and was a beautiful self-taught organist.

Edna had worked as a secretary in the Ingham County Health Department and State of Michigan Motor Fuel Tax Division. She also devoted most of her free time to various volunteer organizations. She was a member of Emanuel First Evangelical Lutheran Church.

She is survived by her Quadruplet sister, Sarah Morlok Cotton of Lansing; one nephew and wife, David A. and Rosnah Cotton and their three sons of Canton, Michigan; several cousins, Doris Jean Baker, Evelyn Beck and Joyce Griffin; and special devoted loving friends, Jerry Cullen, Pauline Zima and family, Robert Carowitz, Dennis Swan and Eve Weipert.

A graveside service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 16, 2015, at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens in Lansing, with the Rev. Paul J. Lindloff officiating. The family will receive friends at the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday. Memorial contributions may be made to her surviving Quadruplet sister, Sarah Morlok Cotton, or to Emanuel First Evangelical Lutheran Church.

I worked with Edna in the Department of Treasury Motor Fuel Tax Division. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this sad time.
Fly high and free Edna. God has gained another angel.

Dear Sarah,
I am so sorry for your loss. My Grandmother, Velma (Kushmall *spelling) and father, Clinton Bailey, often spoke about the Morlock quads when I was growing up. I am a cousin. Oh how I wish I had had the privilege to meet all four of you! Thoughts and prayers to you.

I miss you dear sister, Edna. I am your dear sister, Sarah. I used to write you letters and little notes to keep in touch with you or cheer you up. I can’t do that any more. But I pray for you often. I hope that I will see you in Heaven again some day. I love you dearly. Your loving sister, Sarah.

Sarah, I wish I had known about Edna’s passing. I would have been there. I did not get the paper so I didn’t know. I am so sorry for all of your sisters’ passings. I also met Wilma a few times. God bless you Sarah!
