Pat Edwards is the Managing Editor of Groundwaters magazine and does all of the
layout work and correspondence for the group. She came on board with the
magazine in early 2007, shortly after Judy interviewed and wrote a profile on her

Pat and her husband, Jim Edwards, have lived in the Lorane/Crow area since
1966, and have owned the Lorane Family Store since 1977. They raised their four
kids, Gloria, Rob, Michele and Kelly, on a farm a mile north of Gillespie Corners.
Pat, Nancy O'Hearn and Marna Hing researched and Pat wrote
Sawdust and
Cider; A History of Lorane, Oregon and the Siuslaw Valley
in 1987 in conjunction
with the Lorane Centennial Celebration. Pat later compiled a major revision of the
book, calling it
From Sawdust and Cider to Wine in 2006. She has also been the
publisher and editor of two local newsletters,
Pat's People (4-H) and The Lorane
Pat ran the Lorane Family Store for the first eight years and then went to work for
the Institute of Neuroscience as an administrative coordinator for the international
Zebrafish Research Group. She retired, after 15 years, in April 2004. She now
dedicates her time and energies to the publication of
Groundwaters magazine.
