Edith was and awesome woman. Wonderful person in every way. She was a kind loving person who put the Lord first. Edith was someone we all need to follow because she was a good example of what the Lord wants us all to be like. Edith raised 3 wonderful children who in turn each had wonderful children of their own and they have started their own families. Edith loved and was very proud of her family. Edith will be missed by all. I loved her so much. She also made the BEST French Coconut Pies in the world.

I am a friend and teal sister of Pat Isenberg's. My sincere condolences to Pat and the entire extended family. Although she had a full life and is now out of pain, it is never easy saying goodbye to our mothers and grandmothers. I will have everyone in my thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.....
