Edith loved playing cards, bowling, and baking, especially anything Italian. Edith and her husband, Bill, spent much time with family and enjoying their camp in Pennsylvania. Edith was known for her happy spirit, always ready for a family gathering with wonderful foods, high energy, and laughter. The family is grateful to the kind caregivers at Rae Ann Nursing Home and Crossroads Hospice.
