She was a 1952 graduate of Granite High School, where she was the year book editor. Her editorial skills continued with witty annual family holiday letters and a newspaper column for a weekly suburban newspaper in Littleton, Colorado. She also attended BYU where she met her husband and earned a PHT (Put Hubby Through). Married on June 4, 1954 to Robert B Meibos, she became the parent of Gretchen Ludlow (Allen), Robert Bruce Jr (Cheryl), Karen Ada Little (Bud), Emily Van Wagenen (Rod), Mary Anne Gurr (Tim), John Daniel (Corin), David Warren (Melissa) and Sarah Nancy Ward (Aaron).

With her husband she served a mission to Charlotte, North Carolina, where she helped establish an employment office. They also held an MTC calling and served a mission at the Provo Deseret Industries teaching ESL and employment skills. Edith’s family will miss her candor, her snappy remarks, her doctrinal insights, and her gentle wit; her skillful distribution of advice, especially on the subjects of health and employment and her shopping, copious reading, cooking and haircutting skills and the way she remembered every birthday. She was an example of service to many and love for all.
