American astrologer, founder and editor of the very popular and unique "Mercury Hour" 1974-1985, a magazine composed of letters from astrologers to each other. The publication was late to go out only once in its 26 years. Edith was the recipient of the Marc Edmund Jones Award and the Regulus Award for Community Service, 1989, recognizing service above and beyond the call of duty. A long-term board member of NCGR, she operated on the Advisory Board.
Edith was widowed from a long-term marriage to Vin on 3/22/1997. Known for her gruff manner, Edie also had a great sense of humor and a shoot-from-the-hip straightforwardness.
She went into the Charlottesville, VA hospital for a four-hour surgery on 6/16/2000. With a prognosis of abdominal cancer, she rallied briefly the last week and died on 6/28/2000, 2:15 PM EST.
The Mercury Hour issue came out a few days after Edie's death. In the publication, she had announced that it was the last issue.
