Eddyth had a passion for music! She sang in the church choir for many years and took great joy in doing so! She loved listening to praise music, playing her piano, and singing praises to her Jesus! Eddyth enjoyed doing puzzles on her iPad to keep her mind sharp. Going on car rides and looking at flocks of turkeys and other animals is something Eddyth enjoyed doing with her husband Bill as well as appreciating the fields of wheat right before harvest time. They also enjoyed going to the Derby High School football games and cheering on the panthers. Eddyth married Bill on November 18, 1989 in Wichita, Kansas at Central Community Church.
