In Memoriam of:

Edna Melkamo

Age: 45

In Loving Memory of the Innocent Souls Taken Too Soon. United in peace, their light shines on in the hearts left behind. October 7, 2023, a day of sorrow, but their memories guide us toward a hopeful tomorrow.

Edna z"l was a mother of three children aged 15, 14 and 11, by profession a nurse in the rehabilitation village "Adi Negev Nachalat Eran" in the south of Israel. Edna finished a night shift and on Saturday morning left for her home in Ofakim, on the way she ran into a battlefield and encountered Hamas terrorists who shot at her vehicle. She was missing for several days until her body was found by the police. "Edna is a caregiver from the heart and soul," said her niece, "this is what she did her whole life. She is always for others and helping others. Her love for people is indescribable."
