Edith enjoyed crocheting and made hundreds of pot holders, dish cloths and rugs; put together scores of puzzles and became an avid reader in her later years. Her dad had taught her to shoot as a young girl, and she was very accurate with a firearm.One fall she credited herself with shooting all six deer in the hunting party. A loving farm wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker, Edith enjoyed the challenges of farming and raising 12 children and was a gracious and generous hostess to many.She was a blessing to the Fred Yoder gang and we will never forget her.As little brother Shane would say, "always the family favorite".They were active member of the Wolford Lutheran Church, a member of the Wolford Ladies Aide.
I am glad I have many childhood memories with her that continued when I became an adult.
There she did volunteer work at the Birthline Support Center for Unwed Mothers, enjoyed membership at the American Lutheran Church and its Ladies Aide and involved herself in other community activities.
Travel and dancing were a big part of Marian and Everett’s lives along with family and friends.
Her life is one to be celebrated as she touched so many people's lives.
We pray that those memories will help you through the days ahead.
