  1. Edith was a wonderful inspiration and beloved sister in the Lord Jesus Christ to us. We rejoice in the victory over death that she now knows and experiences because of God’s wonderful grace given to her by faith in Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. May our Lord comfort her family and friends in that knowledge!

  2. Edith had a great sense of humor and was dedicated to her faith in God. Her friends here at Trinity will miss her. Emily Bonette, Secretary Trinity Lutheran Church Indio CA

  3. My mother has no computer so I am writing on her behalf. My mom’s name is Lois A Smith. Edie was a very good friend and will be missed dearly by all her friends in the desert and at the church. She is with God now and at peace…no more pain just joy and happiness. Good bye Edie

  4. Although I do not know any of you, I was raised in Denver Colorado and knew Edith many years ago. Our families were personal friends and Edith and I went to the same church in Denver. I well remember our early years together. I was re-acquainted when she moved to the desert. Blessing to you and your family.

  5. I’ll never forget 4th of July 1972 at Aunt Edith’s house. Imagine the wonder of a 6 yr old boy when, to his surprise, his aunt pulls out bottle rockets and shoots them off!! Her reputation was cemented with me right then and there. Rest in peace, Aunt Edith. With Love, your nephew, Eric

  6. I have many good memories of times spent with Edie and our shared fondness for good food and cooking. Of our times, after dining out at an especially fine restaurant, trying to dissect the meal and recreate it, generally with disastrous results and much laughter. I have no doubt that Edie is now in Heaven talking up a storm with Julia Child and preparing wonderful meals for Magga, Gamps and Carl. God Bless you Edie. Sue

  7. Aunt Edith – I will always remember her as passionate in self expression. Her love for her family and for the Lord was evident. She will be missed!
