Edie was born on March 3, 1937 in Clinton, NY to Theodore Robert Pfohl and the former Thelma Rose. Sadly, Edie’s mother passed away during childbirth when Edie was only four years old. He father remarried (Margaret) and three more children soon came along. Edie, being the oldest of six children, helped her step-mother care for her siblings, becoming like a second mother to them.

Their union of over 65 years was blessed with four children, Danny, Kathy, Debbie, and Cindy. Edie was a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Edie was a loyal employee of Grand Union for over 25 years. After her retirement, she filled her days with tending to her beautiful flowers, walking her beloved dog, Fergie, on the trail, visiting friends, and last but not least, watching sports. Over the years, Edie was a fan of many sports, including hockey, football, tennis, but her greatest passion was her beloved New York Yankees. She and her sister, Barbie, made many trips to Cooperstown where Edie found new treasures to add to her extensive Yankee memorabilia collection.
