Sheila and family, Joan, Beth, Terry and family, and my friend Anne(Kim). We are so very sorry for your loss of your mom Edith. She was such a lovely, warm and joyful lady. She was such an important part of our town. She volunteered and gave of her time for many years. I'm sure she played a big part in many of her students lives as well. A great teacher, a great resident and volunteer and most of all, a wonderful mom! Working at the post office all these years I know she was a very dedicated letter writer even when it barely existed anymore. She was so positive all the time! I am thinking of you all at this very difficult time. She loved her children and grandchildren very much, that was evident. How lucky you all are to have had her!

My thoughts and prayers are with Edith's family, on hearing of her death. She and I were teachers in the same era. Her happiness and engaging smile were always a pleasure to share. I am sure her classrooms were a joy for students as well.

I am so sorry to learn of your loved ones passing. I taught at Fred Keenan and she was such a good teacher. I taught music and Edith was so supportive. We worked together in the church too. Edith you were one faithful servant and heaven has gained a beautiful soul. Rest in peace.
