Elizabeth Eddy

CANAAN, Conn. -- Elizabeth Eddy, 92, formerly of Shushan, N.Y., died Tuesday. Jan. 23, 2007, at Geer Nursing and Rehabilitation in Canaan.

Elizabeth was born in Astoria, Queens County, N.Y., on Nov. 10, 1914, the first daughter and fourth child of Seymour Jesse and Anne Margaret (Lynch) Baum. She was married in Queens County, N.Y., on Feb. 12, 1938, to Edwyn Alen Eddy, an aeronautical engineer, who died on Sept. 11, 1983. Although blessed with beauty, it was her strength, determination and creativity that impressed those who knew her. An accomplished cook, builder, woodworker, craftswoman and arm wrestler, she erected stone walls, sometimes greater than her height, well into her 80s. A woman of strong opinions, she had the confidence to express them. Her presence will be sorely missed.

Elizabeth is survived by her sister, Claire Coleman; brother, Alan Baum; her children, Sandra Eddy Schnyder of Shushan, N.Y., Deborah Eddy of Santa Cruz, Calif., Margaret Eddy Cusick of Norfolk, Conn., Christine Eddy of Thomaston, Conn., Kathryn Eddy, VMD, of Millerton, N.Y., and Andrew Eddy of Redwood City, Calif.; her sons-in-law, Eugene A. Schnyder, David Cusick and Martin Brennan; her daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Ducharme Eddy; her grandchildren, John E. Schnyder, Michael E. Schnyder, Sean Cusick, Brady Cusick, Amanda Cusick, Cynthia Brennan, Matthew Brennan, Brian Eddy and Meghan Eddy; and her great-grandchildren, Liam Cusick, Conor Cusick, Jamie Jones and Isla Cusick.
