1923-2015 Edith "Edie" Templeton, 92, passed away quietly at her home in Holly Springs, North Carolina, on November 20, 2015 after a brief illness. Born January 22, 1923 in Montgomery County, PA, Edie was the daughter of the late Harry and Elsie McIntyre. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband of 69 years, Thomas F. Templeton, Jr. who passed in 2011; siblings, Betty, Brooke, Floss, Bob and Norma. Edie is survived by a daughter, Judith and her husband Paul Kindig of Holly Springs, NC; a son, Thomas F. Templeton, III and his wife Sharon of Westminster, MD; grandchildren, Jeffrey (Julie), Scott (Becky) and Eric (Ibeth) Kindig, Robin (Don) Hashey, Sarah (Andy) Long, Jennifer (Greg) Blake and 11 great grandchildren. Edith spent her entire life within 5 miles of her birthplace in Gulph Mills (Montgomery County), Pennsylvania until she moved to North Carolina in February of 2015. A graduate of Upper Merion High School Class of 1940, where she was a noted athlete, Edie continued to be active throughout her life. She was primarily a homemaker but also worked as a custom flag designer, a photographic colourist, a saleswoman, and an antique dealer. She played field hockey and basketball during her school years-including playing semi-professional basketball under an assumed name - quite a feat for someone who never topped 5 feet in stature, and was an avid golfer and bowler as well! During WW2 she earned the Navy "E" award as "magna-fluxxer" building gun turrets for Navy warships. The family will be holding a private Celebration of Edie's Life at a later date.
