Edith Martin never missed an opportunity to laugh and to see the bright side of any occasion. She will be missed by all who crossed her path, whether as a family member, neighbor or friend. Edith was especially blessed to have had wonderful friends at The Nottingham, and the staff at The Nottingham provided loving care over the years.
Edith is survived by her brother, Warren J. Towner of Rochester and several nieces and nephews.
