page of the Haverhill, Mass., Sunday Valley News this past fall. Edie, who heads the town’s historic preservation committee, was named Citizen of the Year by the chamber of commerce.

We send our sympathy to her family.


I am fine with exception of a shoulder for which I am getting physical therapy. This past summer, my garden supplied me with enough tomatoes, kale, basil, rosemary, beans, lettuce, and cabbage to keep my table full. I now have 14 grand- children and five great-grandchildren, all of whom are doing well. I continue to volunteer and especially enjoyed working at the historic farm in Richmond Town this past fall. School- children from NYC and New Jersey came to pick pumpkins, go on hayrides, see animals, and learn about life in the 1800s. I walk a mile each morning before breakfast to keep in shape.
