She also worked for many years for and retired from the former CAE Link, Kirkwood, where she was in charge of "Technical Publications", keeping technical and specification manuals current. Until three years ago, Edie worked as a poll worker for the Broome County Board of Elections. Edie had a cheerful smile and was always there to help a friend in her younger, healthier days.
