Edith was employed as the first elevator operator at New Mexico's State Capital Building. Later she worked for the State Land Office in Santa Fe. She retired early from Sandia Laboratories in Albuquerque where she was known as"Edie".

Edith helped to host the annual Drum and Bugle Corps Fiesta Band following the San Felipe Fiesta street processions.

Edith treasured a photograph signed for her from the late President John F. Kennedy when he was on a presidential campaign at Sandia Labs. She cared for her parents and her aunt, Aurelia Moya in the Moya home until their demise. We remember aunt Edith with her great smile, teasing and incredible jokes. Auntie takes with her the rare gift of saying only good things about people. Among the unforgettable are her comments, following someone's cursing words: AY CHIYANDO VAN LAS BALLAS AND AY CHINITA POR TU AMOR. Aunt Edith may the angels and our father Abraham, and our mother Sarah, welcome you on your way. Love, Your Familia.
