Ednalois Maxon Saunders ’27

Ednalois Maxon Saunders ’27, April 8, 2003, in Portland. Eddie Lo earned a BA in biology from Reed. Following graduation she took a course at Emmanuel Hospital in Portland, and worked as a clinical laboratory technician. In 1930 she attended the University of Oregon to complete her education credentials, and became a math and science teacher. In 1935 she married Caroll W. Saunders, and they moved to Fossil, Oregon, where they opened a pharmacy. After World War II, the couple sold the pharmacy, and built another in The Dalles, Oregon. While her son and daughter were young, Eddie Lo worked as a substitute teacher, and then taught full time, retiring in 1968 as head of the math department at The Dalles Junior High School. The couple sold their pharmacy at the same time, and embarked on a traveling retirement, with winters in Mexico. Caroll died in 1981.
