Edith E. Cary

Jul, 11, 1935 — March 27, 2016

Beloved mother and grandmother Edith Emma (Proctor) Cary, aged 80, passed away Sunday, March 27 in Evergreen, Colorado after a long and eventful life.

She was born July 11, 1935 in Miami, Arizona, married husband Bill Cary in 1955 and moved with him and their son Chris first to Alma, then Breckenridge and finally Summit Cove.

Edie was a quick-witted, unflinchingly honest woman with a dark, dry sense of humor. She was a voracious reader and acutely intelligent, and, though she preferred to keep people at a bit of a distance, she loved wholeheartedly and gave as often as she could.
