My children and I are among the people who’s lives we touched by Edda. She introduced herself to us as Mema. I really didn’t like leaving my children to go to work, until I met Mema. It was comforting to know my boys were with someone who’s only purpose was to give them her undivided attention while she was with them and treat them as loving as I would , something I never doubted.
Another Angel has been called home! Mema will live on in the hearts and thoughts of those who will never forget her smile or her kindness .
Sincere condolences to the family for their loss.
With love from Linda, Vinny and Matty Ignatowicz

Edda babysat for both my children when they very young and always made their days filled with fun and learning. She was like family to me and I always felt comfortable around her. Edda had a big heart and bigger sense of humor. Her life was a life well lived. She will be missed.

I worked with Edda at Macy’s and she was always so much fun and quick witted! She was very special. At one point I was even going to the house to cut her hair!!! She will be missed very much❤️

Whenever my two sisters and I went down to our mom's house, Edda was ALWAYS our beloved fifth Musketeer. She was always a joy to be around and wrote the most heartfelt messages in the cards she sent you. I have saved all of her cards. We'll all miss Edda very, very much. She profoundly touched us and added richness to
our lives. I love you!

Edda was a special friend of my mother's, Lorraine Egan. We always looked forward to seeing her. She had a wink and a nod sense of humor, that made you feel right at home in her company.
She always made me laugh when she would tell her clients that their jewelry and cash was safe, but don't trust her around a chocolate chip cookie! Prayers to family.

A perfect example of a fine lady, always willing to help others, never shied away from the job at hand. A true Bamberger/Macy dedicated coworker. Edda was one of my Cosmatrons, loved by her customers, and all.

I have and always will remember her as “MY MINNY MONZO”

Rest In Peace, dear LADY.
