Edith was of the Baptist faith and loved her Lord and Savior. Her treasures were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren which she adored with all her heart. She loved her friends, loved to talk, enjoyed spending all the time she had with her company and most of all being a true friend to each person that came into her life.
