Thank you for being such a kind and loving Mother, Grandmother, and Mother-In-Law. I am truly thankful that you welcomed me to your family, and blessed that I spent so much of my life in your company and the company of your daughter, Lorraine. I know my daughters will carry with them your spirit of grit, acceptance, humor, and kindness. Forever grateful...
In Loving Memory,

Aunt Edith was a remarkably strong and wonderful lady. We have so many fond memories of Aunt Edith, Uncle Roland, and all of the cousins coming for visits to the house on Jewett St., as well as family reunions in Auburn. We also visited in Orlando several times, on our honeymoon almost 43 years ago, and other times throughout the years. We always felt so welcomed! Phil even made a trip a few years back, all by himself, and in his wheelchair, and Aunt Edith and family took such good care of him. He so enjoyed that visit, and talked about it for such a long time. Such a wonderful great big family, and such a great matriarch that kept it all together.
She will be greatly remembered and sorely missed.
Love to all,
Mike & Lisa

A couple of times over the years when our family would travel to Florida, we would stop in at Aunt Edith's. She would always make us feel welcome with her hospitality. She would invite us for lunch and call all nearby relatives, ending up with a house full of people and food!
I miss those memories.
Love to all my cousins.
