Her family and friends were her world, and we are so thankful for everyone that made her last days so special; especially the staff members and residents of Friends Home in Kennett, Sunrise in Exton and the angels from Penn Medicine Hospice. She always lived with a certain grit and boundless love and inspired others to do the same.

  8. Bobbi Ann, I’m so sorry for your loss! I have so many memories of your mom from my childhood. She was a wonderful mother and wife to your dad. She was also a good cook. Every time I’d walk into your house, she’d say: Eat, you must eat. Lol. Hugs to you my friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. At least she’s back with your dad once again. 🙏

  10. Sorry for your loss. Edie and my mother were partners in crime for many years as waitresses. Mom passed not to long ago so maybe they are at it again. I used to baby sit you a few times. Your dad and mine drove trucks for krame for along time. Hugs to your family. My maiden name was mclimans.

  12. Although I knew Edie for years she became one of my “Church Lady Friends”. At Christmas we traded samples of our traditonal Italian Cookies after mass. She was a lovely lady and a lot of fun. I missed her when she moved.
    My prayers go out to her family,
