After being widowed, she moved
to Delmont and then to North East

Edith attended the University of Pittsburgh, married

She then worked for five years before retiring.
She was a longtime Quaker, formerly a member of
the Pittsburgh Friends Meeting, and in more recent

Dear Donna and family, Edith was my painting friend, we had a lot of fun painting flowers in my garden. She was the kindest person I ever met. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
