A very feisty and determined woman she loved to cook and was phenomenal in the kitchen. Edie’s lasagna and Italian cookies were always the best. Crossword puzzles and word search, were nearby as she enjoyed keeping busy. Edie had worked for a bit but when her granddaughter arrived, she retired from work and spent her time with Laura. They have shared a very close and loving relationship over the years.

Edie’s greatest love was her family. Her husband, children, son-in-law and grand daughter were her world.
