Edith’s Number 1 priority was always family. She enjoyed roller skating at an early age and throughout life she loved “taking life easy”, music, bowling, traveling, quilting, Christmas, and the color red. She took pride in her heritage and in her work ethic and instilled both in her family. She made sure everyone around her felt loved and when she looked at you, you knew she loved you “bunches”. She was a great listener and was an amazing confidant.
