Erana was born in Cook County, Illinois on December 23, 1902 to Herman Kaske and Helen Klotz.[1] However, from two documents we recently discovered, it appears she had been born as "Irene Louise M. Kaske"[2]


On April 18, 1910, the US Census has "Erana; 7" (born in IL) living with her parents ("Herman; 37"; surname incorrectly spelled as "Kaski", and "Helen; 34") along with her siblings ("Caroline; 15" and "Herbert; 14") at "1625 So. Avers Ave." in Ward "34" of "Chicago", "Cook" County, IL; E.D. "1479".[3]


She married Clarence Edgren on November 11, 1922 at 1420 S. 56th Court, Cicero, IL.[4] [5]


Erana passed away on May 20, 1990 at San Gorgonio Pass Memorial Hospital from respiratory arrest due to increasing congestive heart failure.[6] [7] [8] She had been living with her daughter Eleanor and son-in-law John since August 6th, 1986 (first in Santa Ana, CA, then later in Banning, CA).[9]


Erana was buried in the Mountain View Cemetery in Beaumont, California; Tract 8, Section 204, Grave 4 on May 23, 1990.[10] [11]

"Illinois, Cook County, Birth Certificates, 1871-1940," database, FamilySearch ( : 18 May 2016), Erana Emma Kaske, 23 Dec 1902; Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States, reference/certificate 200471, Cook County Clerk, Cook County Courthouse, Chicago; FHL microfilm. [Note that the data in this record wasn't registered until 30 Jun 1954; likely due to the "Delayed Record of Birth" document we found from 3 Mar 1954 (see Ref. 2).]
  2. These documents are titled "Delayed Record of Birth" (one dated 2 Jun 1951 and another 3 Mar 1954) both of which state that Erana's full name at birth was: "Irene Louise M. Kaske" and that at some time in the past, her name had been changed to: "Erana Emma Kaske". Both of these documents have the seal of a Cook County, IL notary on them; and both also confirm her birth date as 23 Dec 1902.
