We're terribly sorry to hear the news. We hadn't seen Edith and Jerry for a number of years, and just learned of Edith's passing. We have fond memories of a graceful and informed woman, a pleasure to spend an evening with. You have our sympathies.

I have many fond memories of my parents and Edith and Jerry having fun together at many social events and functions in the 70's and 80's. Edith, my mom and some other spouses would always gather in our kitchen telling stories and laughing while their husbands were outside at the pool or on the patio. May her memory be for a blessing.
