Born August 10, 1925 in Kokomo, Indiana to Abigail Marcella Smith and John Tarvin Barlow, Edith was one of five sisters.

Edith graduated from Kokomo High School in 1943. After graduation she was hired at Bell Telephone as a telephone operator. She transferred from Kokomo, Indiana to Marysville, California in 1955 where she continued to work for Bell Telephone until 1966. Edith worked for the City of Yuba City for many years as a dispatcher for the Yuba City Police Department and also worked for Sutter County in the Superior Court and Welfare Department until her retirement in 1990. After her retirement she volunteered as a member of the Auxiliary at Rideout Hospital and spent several years attending Bible Study Fellowship.

Edith loved spending time with her beloved friends and family. For many years after her retirement Edith met with friends and former co-workers for breakfast or lunch every Friday. Edith loved the Oregon Coast and lived for a time in Newport, Oregon where she loved to visit as often as she was able.

Edith is survived by one sister, Helen Adair of Kokomo, Indiana, two daughters, Cassandra Ann DelMasto of Centereach, NY and Vivian Chlarson-Hoffart of Robbins, a son, Steven W. Johnson of Tigard, Oregon, a stepson, Edward P. Chlarson of Lebanon, Oregon, seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
