When one entered the W. Topsham Church, You would hear the church bell ringing (by Edith 25 times) and then she would go to the organ and play for church services with such inspiration. When the offering was being taken she would play and sing with such joy. She took such pride to clean the grounds around the church, "SuCh a welcome, so happy to see everyone." God loved her, such a faithful worker at church suppers. Both W. Topeham and Waits River -- any way she could help in time of need. She took such pride to have the kitchen spotless at both churches. She was also good to her sister who she cared for many years, until she was taken ill. So many inspiratimml talks I have had with her and always a good word for everyone. If wrong was done she would only say "Let's pray for them." May I live up to the Word of God also I will aways try to remember "Thy will be done." I sign this with honor and God Bless her children.

God loved her, such a faithful worker at church suppers. Both W. Topeham and Waits River -- any way she could help in time of need. She took such pride to have the kitchen spotless at both churches. She was also good to her sister who she cared for many years, until she was taken ill. So many inspiratimml talks I have had with her and always a good word for everyone.
