Edith H. Rehrig Obituary - Mt. Ephraim

REHRIG, Edith H. (nee Rowley), 90 years of Mt. Ephraim, NJ, entered into the Kingdom of God on February 18, 2012 surrounded by her loving family.


A true lady, Edith had all of these qualities and more…loving, kind, beautiful, inside and out. She believed in giving, rather than receiving and never had a bad word for anyone. Edith was a lady of great faith and devoted to the Word of God. You would often find Edith sharing her love of music by playing, the piano, guitar, organ and even the harmonica. Edith, her wonderful ways and her cooking and baking will be sadly missed by all that knew and loved her.


Beloved wife to the late Clarence A., Jr.; Devoted mother of Edward John, Sr. (Marlene), Clarence A. III (Barbara), Edith H. (Thomas, Sr.) Gillis, Jed S. (Carmen), Roy W. and Evelyn May (Geraldo); Loving grandmother of Lori, Edward Jr., Gregory, Tina, Thomas Jr., Mark, Melissa, Samantha L., Thomas, Alicia, Brittany and Tressa, great grandmother of 19 and great great grandmother of 12; dear sister of Catherine Rowley, Florence Priest and the late Edward John, Thomas, Robert and James M. Rowley.
