Edie married her beloved husband, Bob, in 1963 and they settled in Braintree where they have lived since. Edie was truly larger than life. She loved taking her grandchildren into Boston around Christmas time to see the displays. You always knew when Edie was in a room because her smile brought such special levity to those around her.
