Edythe was a proud member of the Blyth Legion Ladies Auxiliary for 45 years and the Blyth Legion for 39 years. She loved to bake and was famous for her tea biscuits and elderberry pie which she prepared for many Legion events, and many Threshers Reunions which she also loved to participate in.
Her biggest love was for her family, which showed in her dedication to them. She enjoyed watching the Toronto Maple Leafs and cheering them on loudly to whomever would listen. She played Crib and Lost Heir and watched old western movies especially if they had John Wayne in them.
She had a sweet smile that hid her feisty spirit, and her heavy foot on her scooter. Edythe was a large part of the Blyth community, and she will be remembered and missed greatly.
