Edie loved her job at Dixie College (Dixie State University) where it put her in contact with so many kids and people that became member of her family.

She found a new calling which she excelled at beyond measure which was Grandma. Her grandkids and great grandkids brought so much joy into her life. No matter what activity they were participating in she was there, cheering on louder than anyone.
