She was a devoted fan of Elvis Presley and loved to listen to his music. She was an avid NASCAR fan and loved to watch her favorite driver, Jeff Gordon.

Edith loved the many cats that she cared for over the years and especially Sneezy and Sweetie, both of whom predeceased her and the two cats that survived her, Mr. Sunshine and Mr. Blue Sky.
