    A sweet lady. Her and her husband have been the kindest people I’ve ever had a chance to know. R.I.P

    It’s sad to see Edythe leave this world, but happy she is with her Lord and family that have gone before her. I admire her for going to college to become a nurse and then working in her field while raising 4 children. Edythe was a warm loving generous woman and I am glad to have known her. May she rest in peace.

    It was a lovely service, for a lovely woman who was like a role model as a nurse for me….
