Edith is 90 years young. She was born in New Jersey and attended Howard University, where she became a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and graduated in 1946. Her husband, a minister with the A.M.E. Church passed away in 1989. She has 3 three children, the oldest of which is 65 years old. She still lives alone, in the same house that she and her husband purchased back in 1954. She is one of the most dignified people I have ever met. She looks you directly in the eyes when speaking and has perfect, clear diction. As much as she enjoys her independence, she admits, with the urging of her children, that she may soon need some in-home assistance.
