We are so sorry to hear about Edith .We attended the Nazarene church
with her years ago. She was a dear friend that we saw on many
occasions after that. She will truly be missed. Edith was a very loving
and kind person and thoroughly enjoyed her nursing career. Our
prayers are with the family.

Just this year as a new attendee at Shekinah Church I was forming a
wonderful friendship with sister Edie. She was always so helpful to me
and faithful to the Lord. I will miss her. As I have two daughters in
Goshen (Abigail (Carl) Bontrager) and Anna Holbrook we had much in
common. I was looking forward to helping her as she became older.
She was a strong woman whom I admired. Blessings on your family.

I am sorry to hear about the sudden death of Edie. We had been friends
since the 70s when I lived in Ann Arbor. She will be missed but she is at
peace with the Lord.

I have known Edith for about forty years.  She was active in The Word
of God, a Charismatic Christian community to which I still belong.  She
was a loving, generous woman with a servant's heart.  I was privileged
to know and serve God's people with her on many occasions and to
worship the Lord Jesus with her.  May the Lord comfort and strengthen
you.  You will be in my prayers.

May our Lord bring you His Comfort at this time.  Edie was a very good
friend and prayer partner.  I will really miss her.

I first met Edie because each Sunday back in the mid 1990's she would
come and pick up the South African Pastor Johannes Mahlangu and
his family and take them to Shekinah to church.  She was a loving
servant of the Lord in many ways and to many people.

She frequently had a holistic medicinal recommendation for any
malady or simply to promote health.

Dear Edie was part of a home group that my father ran while I was in
high school.  She has always been a role model of faithfulness in
things large and small. What a godly woman!
