She loved having friends and family over to her house, and was famous for her dinner parties. Edith and her husband travelled all over the world during their marriage, but for her nothing compared to the coast of Maine. Survivors include a son, Randy Ostrich of Brunswick and Watertown, MA, a brother, Ernie Wallach and wife Toby of Virginia. Besides her parents and husband, she was predeceased by a daughter, Ellen, in 1973. Graveside services will be held at a later date at the Beth Jacob Cemetery, Auburn.
