She was a member of Scarva Street Presbyterian Church. She is survived by her son Alan, daughter-in-law Caroline, two grandchildren Paul (England) and Alana (Saudi Arabia) and two great grandchildren Niamh and Aoibhe.

The hymns ‘O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go’ and ‘The Lord’s My Shepherd’ were sung. Tom Haire presided at the organ. As the cortege was leaving the front of the church Edith’s favourite song ‘The Rose’ was played.
