Our most beloved mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend reached out quietly and at peace to slip her small hand into the gentle hand of the Lord.

Edith Luella Hamblin left us on April 9, 1991. She fought a courageous battle which she eventually lost.She was born in Bacus, Utah on September 15, 1918, to Edward and Drucilla Snyder Moore. She married William Lenard Hamblin on December 3, 1938. Edith was a bright charming, delightful lady, a constant source of joy and encouragement to all who knew her. She had a marvelous sense of humor and a deep, abiding love for all of nature and its creatures, much of which she put on canvas in her paintings. She was an accomplished songwriter and composer and her music is enjoyed by many. She is known by a multitude for her talents and her generosity, having given a small, precious part of herself to everyone she knew. She loved life and wished to be remembered as she was, not in death.

This world will be a darker place without her, but we can look to the heavens now and see a new, brilliant star where previously there had been none.

Edith will be mourned and missed by we who loved her.

She was preceded in death by her husband, June 1984. Her survivors include: Three daughters and their husbands: Billie (Arthur) Montanesi, Mary (Gary) Eastin, and Barbara (Mike) Pappadakis; three sisters, Wanda Hansen, June Hamblin, and Florence Hamblin; seven grandchildren, Steve Brock, Lorrie (Eastin) Kersting, Richard, Deon and James Eastin, and Mike and John Pappadakis; six great-grandchildren, Kristina, Jimmy, Natasha, Colby, Joshua and Brandy.

At her own request, graveside services will be held for family and close friends at the Kaysville City Cemetery on April 11, 1991, at 1 p.m. Flowers and arrangements will be handled by Lindquist's Kaysville Mortuary.
