Edythe A. (Grigg) Landry, a lifelong resident of Woburn, passed away at the Sawtelle Family Hospice Home in Reading, Friday evening, August 18th, after a lingering illness. The beloved wife of the late Edward A. Landry, she was one month shy of ninety.
Born in Woburn, Edythe was one of six children born to the late Norman and Angie (Angelo) Grigg. Graduating from Woburn High School with the Class of 1944, Edythe secured herself a position with the Woburn Public Library shortly thereafter. A couple of years later, Edythe joined with the Telephone Company, which was next door, where she worked nights for over thirty two years.
In 1956, Edythe married her beloved Edward and brought a daughter and son into the world. Throughout her life time Edythe was always the go to person. For her parents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and grandchildren, she at any point in time had been their caretaker. She was a truly giving person full of love, compassion and sensitivity to all the needs of her family. Whether it was doctors appointments, babysitting, rides to sporting evemts, the store or church Auntie Edythe was there for them all.
For over twenty five years the family headed north to Nova Scotia to vacation with their extended family. This was always a cherished time of making some truly wonderful memories. In later years Edythe and her sisters all travelled together. Several times during each year all the sisters would venture off to any one of their many time shares, to see the world and have a ball together!
Always a very busy woman, she was most attentive to her husband, children and her home. Anytime she did find for herself, she would knit. Beautiful Irish knit sweaters adorned her family, sisters, nieces and nephews!
Edythe was a very hard worker, never taking much time for herself. The love she shared for her family was there in everything she did and her genuine faith in each day she lived.
Sadly, in addition to her parents, Edythe was predeceased by her dear husband Edward and siblings Kenneth and Eleanor.
Edythe is lovingly survived by her son John Landry of Woburn and Patricia Dekow of Burlington, her siblings Frances Marria of MD, Barbara McLaughlin of Groton and Robert Grigg of NH, her grandchildren, Justin and Jason Dekow. She is also survived by one great grandchild. At the family’s request all services are private and under the direction of Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn.
