Edith loved the Lord, her family, and her church. She enjoyed spending time with family and attending family get togethers. She attended Garden Heights Freewill Baptist Church in Sand Springs for 50 years. She enjoyed teaching Sunday School and always mailed the weekly newsletter to anyone unable to attend services.
