Edith loved with all of her heart and her radiant smile brightened the life of everyone she knew. She was a dedicated and hard worker her whole life and was willing to do anything for anyone at any time. Faith, family, food, babies, and flowers are the words that come to mind when thinking of Edith. She could spend hours, even long into the night, praying, cooking, and crocheting. To her, age was just a number and nothing could stand in her way. She was blessed to live in her own home making biscuits until her last brief illness. Edith led a blessed Christian life and was ready to go to her heavenly home.
