Edith was born in Columbia, MO on August 29, 1935, to John and Vivian Thurston. When she was six months old, the family traveled by train to Pueblo, County and Cuerno Verde was home to Edith until she married her childhood sweetheart. Second only to her precious Lord and Savior, Edith loved being a mother and grandmother. Alongside Bobby, they raised Charolais cattle for nearly 40 years. Edith was passionate about politics and about serving our military veterans. For more than 20 years, she and her best friend, Dorris Landerway, would spend each Memorial and Veteran’s Day weekends outside Loaf ‘N Jug in Colorado City requesting Buddy Poppy donations for disabled servicemen and women. Those two loved their veterans!
