Remembering Edith and my grandmother Ginny playing cards and drinking a little wine. Giggled their little hearts out. Bob and Bill just sat around being grumpy old men watching tv. Rest in peace Aunt Edith.

My Aunt Edith was as kind a woman as you could ever know. She always looked out for her girls, and had nice words to greet you. God has one of his good ones.

Dear Armington/Pfeiffer Family,
We were very saddened to learn of Aunt Edith's passing. It seemed so unexpected and sudden. We will miss her; our visits to Indiana will not be the same without the late night card games and her pies, she always seemed to have one in the house for us to feast on during our visits. We have lots of fond memories with her and Uncle Bill. They both lived life to the fullest- and they did a marvelous job raising all of you. And you were all so good to them-have no regrets.

You are in our thoughts at this time.
Sincerely,
Audrey, Donald and Family
