I knew Edie for more than 60 years and she was always the same sweet lady, no matter where I would see her. Please accept my sympathy

To the family of Edith (Edie) as I knew her. She was a very special lady who loved her children . Her grandchildren meant the world to her. And you didn't have to be blood for her to care about you. I still remember that old station wagon she used to drive. I remember her unloading groceries and I especially remember her smile. She was kind of a neighborhood mom. She left a wonderful legacy of the importance of family. She definitely will be missed. My sincerest condolences to the entire Williams family. My prayers are with you.
