Edie worked for Teton Sales for many years. She later went to work for Metro Community Services. She enjoyed taking care of people and made many friends in doing so. She did this job until a year and a half ago. At which time she stayed home and enjoyed the company of her dogs Hercules, DeDe, Mr Gibbs, and Gypsy. She loved being outside. She loved working in the yard, flower beds, and garden. Edie loved spending time with her kids, grandkids, great grandchild, and the rest of the family she had. She called Graycie her little nurse. Doreen Wittenborn was her sister-in-law, but they thought of each other as sisters.

She is also survived by grandchildren Jeffrey and Liz Welch and great granddaughter Graycie Welch, Kathlyn Welch and fiancé Matt Warner, Kourtney and Steven Despain.
