The light that we enjoyed and treasured that Edith provided has left us dark and lonely. What we'll treasure most about our memories of her is her genuine humanity that she shared freely with any and all persons. We're forever enriched by her example.

My deepest condolences to the family. There has never been a time I would see Edith without a smile on her face. She was a beautiful, classy woman who enjoyed life and who adored her daughter, Sharon. I live on the same street as Edith, so I would see her enjoying her strolls through the neighborhood by her daughter or caretakers. Again, wearing that smile. You will be missed by so many people. May you Rest In Peace now and have perpetual light shine upon you, Edith!
