Edie is a kind and generous soul. She made me, a stranger, feel welcome in her church. God bless her and keep her.

I went to school with Edith, classmates all the way from Lakewood Elementary through Woodrow Wilson High School. I truly can't think of a nicer person through all those years than Edith. So pretty too. These pictures contained within this memory to her reflect on what a wonderful family life she got to lead and enjoy. I am happy that she did. She deserved it. Thank you Edith for your kindness. You were a joy to know. You will be missed.

Edie and I went to JL Long and Woodrow together. We graduated in 1968. She was always so sweet and so beautiful. I had not seen her since then until we reconnected several years ago when our grandchildren started at Lakewood Presbyterian School. We enjoyed visiting. I will remember her fondly. Prayers, condolences, and love to the family.

I didn’t have the joy of knowing Edie Robertstad for a long time but I am so grateful for the interactions we did have. My brother, Christopher married her daughter Lauren. She treated me with such kindness every time we met as if I was her family too. I’ll miss seeing her warm smile and friendly embrace. Her legacy lives on in her beautiful children and grandchildren. May God wrap you all in His tender care during these difficult hours, days and months ahead. You all are in my prayers. Love, Michelle

Mrs. Robertstad made Rachel and I feel so welcomed when we began attending Lakewood Presbyterian almost 20 years ago. I will not forget her sweet smile and gentle spirit. She was always so kind and caring, and she was a blessing to her community.
