Thoughts and prayers this day to Edith's family. May the love of family and friends give them strength of faith to carry on through this difficult time.

The Morrell Family had known Edith since the grand ol days of the Moose Lodge in the early 80's, when we were new to town. Her vibrant personality, sparkling eyes and flashing mood would always let you know what was on her mind! And 'sometimes' ya just had to smile!! Always active within her community, she had a way of making everyone feel good about themselves. She will be greatly missed. ♥

Terry & Patty

We are remembering Edith and her ways to make people smile. In the days of homemakers club, and also visiting the hunters camp with Fred Hyatt (ARK hunter) with Buck and Betty when Edith and Doc ran the camp in the south mountains. Good times and memories.

Edith was our President of the General Federation of Women's Clubs of Wyoming from 2006 to 2008. We worked and traveled together during the years we served on our state and national boards which were some very fun times! She was a generous, dedicated and hard working Wyoming clubwoman and we will surely miss her. She was a very special person. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to her family.
Phyllis and members of GFWC-Wyoming.

Edith and I were GFWC State Presidents for the same administration. Our group of presidents had a lot of fun together during the Board Meetings and Conventions and I enjoyed the time I spent with Edith - missed her at the last convention in North Carolina.

She was a wonderful woman - and she will be missed.

Our sympathy to you and yours in your loss of Edith. She had the cabin below my mom, Ruth Howard and often stopped to visit at the A Frame on her way down. Both she and Gerald were a big help to Ruth and she often quoted Edith's news. She was also a member of the North Laramie Range Alliance and supported the efforts to keep the mountains pristine. Sincerely, the Sarveys and Howards
