Edie embraced life every day - you were never a stranger to her. She loved life and had a twinkle in her eye that made you wonder what she was up to! I remember her from when Tony owned the gas station and my older brothers worked for him. We had a great time at Lady Elks and she always was dressed "to the nines". Walking by her house in the summer was a pleasure as many times we would chat about family, flowers and of course cooking! I enjoyed my visits with Edie at Manor Care and am grateful for her influence on my life. Martee Mendini-Trepanier

Edith, familiarly known as Edie, was a very special person and will be sorely missed. I was one of the many children that she babysat. She was like a mother to me; I often refer to her as my second mother. I have so many memories of her (and Tony); I can’t even begin to express them all.
Edie was funny and witty and refreshingly straightforward. She wasn’t afraid to say what was on her mind. She was an incredible cook; I ate very well when I was at her house. She told me how she remembered her mom rolling pasta by hand and was so glad that she didn’t have to do that. She fit the traditional Italian who would say, ‘I didn’t make much’ but there’d be so much food and she would encourage you to eat more.
Edie had several hobbies and favorite pastimes. She enjoyed playing cards; we spent hours playing 101 and a couple years ago she confessed that she often let me win. She was creative and talented with crafts and knitting; she even knit clothes for my Barbie dolls. We would also go to her sister, Millie’s house to do ceramics. We spent a lot of time with Millie. I also remember meeting her sister, Vi when she came to visit from California and spending some time with her sister, Louise. She loved her family and if you weren’t family but were close to her, she treated you like family.
I continued to visit Edie regularly until I moved too far away to visit easily but we always kept in touch and I don’t think a day has ever gone by that I haven’t thought of her. I wish I could’ve spent more time with her. I cherish the memories of her and Tony and her stories and memories of her life that she shared with me.
I loved Edie with all my heart and always will. I am a better person for having had her in my life.
