I first met Edith when Fresh Foods opened. She was always the highlight of the trip to the grocery store. Every time she saw me, she always asked how things were going and how my young son was at the time. I think everyone who knew her had to always gets into her check-out line! We all will miss her!

I worked with Edith when she was a housekeeper at WEL-Life at Scottsbluff. She was a very loving, caring person, I know the resident's loved visiting with her when she would clean their rooms. I also enjoyed visiting with her at work and then when she started working for fresh foods in gering. You have a special angel watching over you now. Thoughts and prayers for your family.

Edith was the sweetest lady. I Loved working with her at Fresh Foods. I looked forward to seeing her on the Sundays I worked. We would talk about our kids, quickly they grow and what they were doing.

Edith you will be missed. You have a place in my heart forever.

I met Edith when she was employed at Fresh Foods in Gering. If she was working, I always went to her station to check out. She was always so friendly and helpful. If she wasn't busy, we got to visit a little. I missed her when she retired.

We have missed seeing her and now am saddened to not be able to see her again. She gave us good memories and always a kind word. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family.
