Carolyn Edwards Aunt Edie has always been a dear aunt to Vanessa and I. I spent the first years of my life growing up in the house she sold to my parents. I even have her to thank for contributing her recessive gene by allowing Joshua to have red hair! With a family as small as ours, it’s extra sad to lose a family member; however, I know that she is in a better place. Learn some new games up there, Aunt Edie so you can teach them to me when I see you again! Love you! ❤️

Lori SmithNancy, Brad & families.... Thinking of you all at this very difficult time. My mom has lost her bestie.. the one she could spend hours talking to on the phone. In the good old days - when we tried to call and got a busy signal for hours - we knew it was Edie she was talking to. I always enjoyed chatting with your mom when she visited with my folks. Lifelong friends create lifelong memories. I know eventually - the tears will turn to smiles for my mom and all of you. My deepest sympathies... Lori
Grant WrenNancy & Brad. Sincere condolences on your mom’s passing. Lots of fun memories of childhood times playing in the field behind your house on Ellsworth. May your memories of her be a comfort to you in the days ahead. Grant
Sue DixonBrad, Nancy, Mike & family - sincerest condolences on your mom's passing. I can't count the times I enjoyed long telephone calls with your mom! I was reminded by Lori on this page of the many times in years gone by when MY mom's phone was busy for hours ... and we also knew it could only be Edith with whom she was talking that long! Their friendship of close to 80 years meant that your mom was always a familiar face in my life; she was so kind to invite me to lunch almost every day when I got my first job downtown and she was a member of the family when both my grandmother and mom passed away. She was a special lady and I will miss her -- most especially her laugh. Sue
