Obituary

Edith Eileen Solomon died on May 28, 2022 at her home of nearly 70 years in Hartsdale, NY. She was the proud mother of Abby, Steve, Ken and Suzy; devoted grandmother of Jamie, Nicole, Reuben and Kieran; and loving great-grandmother of Aishe, Abayome and Stevie. She loved and will be sorely missed by her son- and daughters-in-law Geoff, Sarah-Marie and Janice, and her nephews Larry and Robin Horn, their wives Judy and Terri and their children. She was predeceased by her husband, Milton, and her children Abby and Steve.
Edith had an interesting childhood, growing up in Manhattan and Troy, NY. She left high school before graduation to marry a childhood friend in 1940 and had Abby. She met Milt when Abby was about 8 and they married in 1949. After they moved to the suburbs, she was primarily a stay-at-home mom, and took painting lessons, sewed clothes (and Halloween costumes!) and gave her kids a wonderful life.
Once she and Milt were empty nesters, she got her GED; went to community college then College of New Rochelle for her BA; and went on to NYU for a Master's in social work. She practiced as a social worker for various organizations, running support groups for Parkinson's spouses and in hospitals.
She and Milt enjoyed traveling, and went on many trips to Europe, and later in Canada and the US to see family. She loved her home and the artwork that they chose together, and along with Milt, got great pleasure out of entertaining, theater, movies and music.
There will be a memorial service in June. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice in Edith's memory.
