Edwina H. Trichler, 93, of Yates Center, Kan., passed away March 1, 2013, at the Coffey County Hospital after a brief illness. Edwina was born Edwina H. Bomhoff on Feb. 24, 1920, in Kansas City, Mo., the daughter of Mabel Florence Bertch Bomhoff and Harrison Russell Bomhoff. She was supposed to be a boy so she was named after grandfather, George Edwin Bertch. Edwina was the hird of Harry and Mabel's eight children. The family moved to Wichita, Kan., when Edwina was two months old. She graduated from East High School in Wichita. She was baptized as a baby and was always interested in the missionary society, beginning with the Otterbein Guild at age 13. She was devoted to the church until her death, and still attended services when she could. She was an avid reader, and during her younger years did artwork with watercolor as her primary medium. She also was famous for her artistically decorated birthday cakes. Later in life she was active with the local Senior Center and participated with the Belles and Beaus performance group.
Edwina graduated from York College at York, Neb., in 1942. At York, she met Harvey Winter Klick, and they were married June 12, 1943. They lived in Wichita for a year; then Harvey entered military service with the Army Air Force. After he was discharged they moved to the Klick family farm north of Toronto, Kan., where Edwina's daughter Beth Hamman and Beth's husband Michael have operated a hunting preserve since 1978. Edwina and Harvey lived on the farm until 1972, when they moved to Yates Center. Harvey managed the Woodson County Co-op until his death in 1976.
