Edith, a devoted homemaker, looked forward to cooking for her family, as well as her students and staff for thirty-two years as a cook and cafeteria manager for the Quincy Public Schools. Family holiday celebrations and regular Sunday dinners brought her great joy. After retirement, Edith enjoyed volunteering at the Quincy Hospital Gift Shop. She loved playing cards and trips to Foxwoods and Las Vegas. Edith looked forward to spending Saturday nights dancing with her late husband, Ricky, and friends at the Torre Dei Passeri or Moseley’s on the Charles. She enjoyed her card nights with family and friends. Edith was an avid clothes shopper. She loved spending summer days sitting by the pool with her family and could be found sitting on her front porch with friends and family most evenings.

Edith made many friends during her twenty-plus years living at 1000 Southern Artery. For many years, she was blessed with loving and caring health aides: Theresa Gomes, Teresa Walker, and Edwina Toussaint from Best of Care, and Patricia Young, Toni Barnett, and Evelyn Caliari of Quincy.

Edith’s family would like to acknowledge and thank the staff at Alliance at Marina Bay Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for the care they gave Edith, and Kindred Hospice of Auburndale for their comfort and support during Edith’s last days.

A memorial funeral Mass will be celebrated in Saint Joseph’s Church, 550 Washington Street, Quincy, on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 10 a.m. Relatives and friends are invited to attend.

For those who wish, donations in Edith’s memory may be made to Quincy Public Schools Food Services, c/o Sara Dufour, Director of Food Services, 34 Coddington Street, Quincy, MA 02169.
