A woman truly devoted to serving others, Edith worked in hospitality and retired from Grandview Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After retiring from Grandview, she was employed with the Woodbury Day Care Center nurturing and caring for children. Children loved her and would affectionately call her “Ms. Edie”. She was known to be a safe place and refuge for anyone in need. This was an attribute and labor of love she embraced as a legacy passed down from her mother. In early 2006, Edith accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. She became a member of Spoken Word Church in Woodbury, New Jersey. She immediately began ushering, working in the hospitality and youth ministries. The joy of the Lord became her strength and light. Her faithfulness to the Lord was evident by her heart’s posture to serve wherever there was a need. She enjoyed dancing, selling dinners, and fellowshipping with family and friends. She was tender hearted, outgoing, caring, and sensitive to the needs of others. Her selfless nature and acts of kindness were attributes admired by those who knew her.
