She was born Edith Norma Eliason at Cocolalla, Idaho on October 12, 1925. She grew up developing close relationships with both her family and friends. Many of those early friendships flourished for her entire lifetime. She was always a gracious and enthusiastic hostess, willing to coordinate gatherings on short notice in order to visit and enjoy time together.

Edith and Bill purchased a lake lot at Cocolalla Lake near her birthplace and built a cabin there, where they enjoyed many outdoor adventures with family and friends.
