To the Crosby Family, my sincere condolences. Edith and Lloyd were good friends of my Mom and Dad, Bill and Eileen Lawrence. They enjoyed many social fun times together. Edith was such a lady, always so beautifully put together and charming to talk to. Heartfelt thoughts to you all.

Sorry to hear of Aunt Eddies passing. As a young person I was lucky to have she and Uncle Lloyd in my life growing up and spent time at their camp. Remember taking the boat ride over with Mom and Dad {Phyllis and John Patten} and the Churchills. Always lots of fun whenever they all got together. She was a lady for sure and had the pleasure of working with her at The Tartan Shop. So sorry for your loss

Edith and her sister Ruth were so helpful when I was researching the descendants of Elias Trask for The first edition of The Trasks of Nova Scotia, providing data on the Richard Thomas Smith family.
My sympathy to Robert and family.

My condolences in your loss. I remember Edith from the Tartan Tearoom on Main Street many years ago. A lovely lady who worked in the kitchen. I was a waitress there for two summers. Dorothy Vallillee

My late husband, Ernie, was Edith (& Lloyd's) Nephew. He had special memories of Aunt Edith accompanying him (by train?) for at least one of his many admissions to Children's Hospital in Halifax. Aunt Edith was our attentive host at Yarmouth visits over the years & they called our Tyson "little Ernest". Our prayers go with you,Bob, Catherine & Family in your loss. Please let us know when you set a remembrance date. Luella (Long) Crosby & Family
