She was known for her home-made crafts, especially during the holidays when she shared her gifts with all her family and friends. She enjoyed playing bridge with her many friends at the Newark Senior Center. She was an avid reader and enjoyed playing sports and rooting on her favorite teams. One of her family's fondest memories was singing Christmas carols together while she played the organ. Edith was a fun loving person known for her quick smile and sunny disposition. She will be missed by everyone who was part of her life.
