Edith was a WWII “ Rosie the Riveter” with no limits to what she could do when she set her mind to something. She worked in factories, on the farm, was a short order cook (and made the best burgers), a phenomenal mother to 8 children, loved entertaining company, a homemaker, and a believer in Christ. Always friendly and outgoing. Edith sang in her church choir at Shady chapel church and played the Ukulele.
