|Let the memory of Edythe be with us forever|
"Mimi was always a leader to me, and inspiration, and a mentor. I learned so much from her in the years I knew her, growing up and seeing her in Southern California twice a year.
What I will always remember most is how well she listened and provided advice to everything. "Yes, dear?" She would always ask when I would ask for her attention. Then, she would patiently wait until I was done speaking and gently scoff and respond. "Well! Here is what I think..." And then she would proceed to give me a thorough analysis of what she would do. That was Mimi.
All of the wonderful conversations I had with her... She was a wonderful person in my life and I am happy to have known her. I miss her now, four years later."
"Today i miss you Mimi as much as I did the morning after you passed on. I know your happy with Papa and Kuma, just make sure you don't sneak him too much food under the table. :) Lauryn and I still laugh about those stories and so many more.
Just know we love you and think of you always. You influenced so many people in such a tremendous way.
As you always say
"I love you more" and "I love you most, because I am the Mimi"! And of course "you can have kisses on the wips".
Love your grateful grandson and
"I am so sad to see that Edythe has passed away. She was like a mother to me. I've known her since 1979. So very sorry for her loss."
"My mother was a hero. She was a hero to her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. She was a hero to the Nursing profession as well.
During World War II, she practiced Advance Practice Nursing long before the profession acknowledged it's professional possibilities. She left this world the way she wanted. She rests pain free with her dignity."
"May her memory and name always be spoken for a blessing and may she rest in peace.
THANK YOU Edythe for your service to our country during our time of war. Your courage and strength saved lives and helped to make our country the greatest Nation in the world. THANK YOU!"
