  1. She just never stopped being beautiful! Somehow, she knew how to be a wonderful mother and wife, career woman, and family member all at the same time. She was a great influence on me and my sister Juanice and, in later years, on my daughter Frederica. I will forever remember the sound of her laughter and voice as she played cards or “42” with the other fiends – Uncle Warren, my parents Tim and Lucy, and Aunt Pearl and Uncle Jack. The sound of those games is the background to many of my growing-up memories. She was usually the voice of reason when things got out-of-control. Forever in my heart and mind!

  2. I treasure the times shared with the special lady, Edith Jones. Thank you, Kaye and George, for sharing her!

  3. Ms. Edith was such a sweet and kind lady. She was truly a blessing to get to know and it was a honor to care for her. What a wonderful legacy she has left. We are praying for you all.

  4. George: I saw in the Brady paper where Edith is now in heaven. I was sorry to hear of her passing, but know that she is in a better place. She was such a wonderful person and my mom Gwen Fullagar and I loved visiting with her and going to church with her in Brady. After she moved to be with you and Kaye, I thought of her often and know that she was well taken care of. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Please let me know when she will be laid to rest in Lohn. I would love to honor her at that time. Love, Patti Fullagar Willems

  5. Cousin Edith was in our thoughts & prayers at the Lohn Family Reunion, June 17th. I remember 4 or 5 reunions ago when she won the ‘oldest’ award & danced down the aisle to pick it up – what a hoot. She said that she stayed young dancing around the house every morning. What a great lady with the Huie sense of humor. There will be more laughter in Heave now that she’s there. RIP
