Edith attended First Street School, then to West Jr. and graduated from Warren G. Harding in the June class of 1954. During her senior year began working at the Daniels and Robins Theatre where she met the love of her life, Bob Rice. Edie and Bob married January 18,1958 at Christ Our King Church and began their legacy and welcomed three children, Bobby Jr., Mary and Gina.

After graduation she worked at the Tribune Chronicle for ten years stopping to raise the children. Returning to work, she began grocery career beginning with Vennitti’s Market followed by Valu King and ending with Giant Eagle, retiring in 1994 as also the union steward for the store.

Edie and Bob enjoyed going to church and dinner every weekend. Their fun times were: skating at Quimby park, bowling, country and western shows, going to the casinos and family vacations to Cedar Point, West Virginia and Virginia Beach. She was a card shark at 500 Rummy and a champ at checkers.  Edie was known for her cooking and her love for baking. She often made cheese cakes, Easter bread and nut rolls for family and friends. Her love for food was equal to the love she had for them.
