She will be deeply missed by her surviving family and friends, including her daughter Sondra Jean Newman and husband, Ernie, special grandson Bruce Newman and wife, Leslie, her sister Faye Dalton of Hendersonville, NC, and brother Arnold Gilbert of Anderson, SC.

A graveside service will be held at 2 PM, Sunday, June 4, 2023, at Bethel Wesleyan Church Cemetery in Flat Rock with Pastors Tim Clark and Eddie Clayton officiating.

“Mom, we will miss you, but you will always be in our hearts. We love you!”

Jean and Family, so sorry to hear of your loss. We always loved Edith. She was such a delight to be around. Always cheerful and beautiful. I guess the last time we saw her was at the birthday party at your church but we often thought of her when we would pass her house when in the area. They were my neighbors when I was a girl never knowing I would marry into the Gilberts. God give you peace in the coming days knowing she is home with Jesus and family. Alton Linda (Nichols) Gilbert
