She was married to Charles Briley. They had one son, Brent Briley who resided in Colorado and Washington State until moving to Tularosa last year to care for his mother and father.
Edie, as she was called by those who loved her, is survived by her husband of over 60 years, Charles; one sister, Kathleen Fay DaPron; three grandchildren, Tanya Beck, Michelle Evans and husband Brandon and Chad Briley; seven great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her three brothers, Orville, Chuck and Ivan; her mother and father and a great-grandson, Brady Evans. Edith lived in Colorado most of her life until moving to Texas in the late 1990's and finally retiring to Tularosa in 2000. Edie had a precious heart and a witty disposition. She loved doing arts and crafts and enjoying time with her grandbabies. She will truly be missed. Until the day she died, she was pure sunshine to all. There will be a private memorial service for the family at a future date.
