Edie was a lifelong volunteer at her Synagogues, the Jewish Community Center, Heritage Manor and Na' Amat.

Her greatest joy was maintaining a warm Jewish home where she raised her four children, Shelly (Tamara) Gerry (Jeannie) Debbie (Max), and Karen (Meir). 

Edie's home has always served as the epicenter of the family, bringing together multiple generations of loved ones from all over the country.

Her loving grandchildren are Daria, Kenny (Stephanie) and Ben, Joshua, Pamela, Nathaniel, Paula, Danny, Sammy (Shir), Rachel (Austin), Zack (Malki) and Joey.

Her great-grandchildren are Liora, Molly, Seth, Lea, Mikey, Abby and Kira. Being surrounded by family always brought Edie tremendous joy.
