Edith Anna Fye

At 32, this feisty German lady came to America after losing her husband, Leo (an Army Purple Heart recipient), in 1960.

She overcame language barriers, living in a new country raising her two-year-old alone. She embraced her life, she talked to everyone and shared stories about Germany and she cooked fabulous food: cheesecake, goulash and rouladen were the favorites! She enjoyed bingo, casinos and her friends.

She was passionate about animals especially her doggies. She had a green thumb and raised beautiful African violets. She valued her family and loved them deeply. She will be missed, never forgotten and always loved by three generations she left behind: her daughters, Aileen and Donna Stewart; and her grandson, James Smith, his wife, Lena, and their five children: Jaisaan, Jewell, Malosi, Manaia and Vincent.
