She was a member of the Church of Christ in Evadale, and a long-time employee for Walmart Garden center until she retired.

Edith was a sweet, simple and kind-hearted person that would help anyone she could. She also loved animals and had a green thumb for flowers.

The family would like to thank Laken and all the others that had a hand in moms care at Mill Creek Nursing Home and Woodville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
