Edith was a 1948 graduate of Mt. Victory High School.
She loved to ride motorcycles with her husband, so much so that they became life members of the American Motorcycle Association (A.M.A.). One of her fondest memories was when they traveled to Europe and rented a motorcycle for a month and just drove around the country.
Edith was a true homemaker. She loved her children and her grandchildren dearly, and it was her true joy taking care of her family. She enjoyed watching them at various sporting events or anything else they were involved with. Edith never knew a stranger and had an outgoing personality that will be dearly missed.
In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Hardin Co. Humane Society.
