Edith passed away at her longtime home in Yonkers on August 31st, 2021. Born in the Bronx where she lived until 1959, she was the much-loved daughter of Angela and Joseph Minnecola. A striking and classic beauty, she modeled for a time after high school in New York's Fashion District. Talented, creative and a brilliant cook, conversationalist and hostess, her home was ever open to her family and friends as she raised her four beautiful children and doted on her grandchildren. She pursued a love for tap dancing and tennis well into her middle years and amazed all with her thorough acquainticeship with every Hollywood film and every Broadway play, as well as the actors, directors and music composers who graced them. From a musical family, she was a veritable treasury of song. A loving mother, she cared at home for her special child, Elizabeth, for 32 years with utter and selfless devotion. Edith was truly loved by many friends and relatives for her spark, her wit, her way with words and effervescent personality.
