She also enjoyed family outings, gardening, bridge and till late in life amazed her family with her recall of cherished poems and family memories. After a short, difficult adjustment Edith felt happy and at home at " The Village" where she was well looked after by a caring staff. A lady to the end she was rarely seen without her purse!
