History of Kentucky The Blue Grass State, Volume III Illustrated, The S. J. Clarke Publishing Company, Chicago-Louisville, 1928.

Edna L. Wernke, one of the brightest business women of Louisville, is secretary and treasurer of both the Central Consumers Company and the Metropolitan Realty Company. Her father, Frank J. Wernke, was a lifelong resident of Cincinnati, Ohio, in which city he passed away when Miss Edna was a little maiden of eight summers. He married Elizabeth Gerst, daughter of Frank A. and Lizette Gerst, who were natives of Germany, whence they emigrated to the United States in early life, settling in Louisville, Kentucky. Frank A. Gerst here established the F. A. Gerst Dry Goods Company, of which he served as president, and was also a director of the Louisville National Bank. He passed away in 1888 but is still survived by his widow, who resides in Louisville at the advanced age of ninety years. Frank J. and Elizabeth (Gerst) Wernke became the parents of three children, two of whom are yet living: F. Erwin Wernke, auditor of the Louisville Provision Company; and Edna L.

Edna L. Wernke pursued her education in the public schools of Louisville and is also a graduate of the Commercial high school of this city. The creditable position which she has attained in business circles is shown in the fact that she is now officially connected with the Central Consumers Company and the Metropolitan Realty Company in the dual capacity of secretary and treasurer. Miss Wernke is widely recognized as a woman of marked business ability and sound judgment and her advice is frequently sought by men of affairs. She is a communicant of the Catholic church. Merit has won her deserved recognition in the field of business, while an attractive and winning personality has gained her many friends in Louisville’s social circles.
