Edith (Reed) Hurlburt, 93, of Troy, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Oct. 11, 2020 at home surrounded by her family. She was the loving wife of the late Ermold E. “Sam” Hurlburt who passed away on Jan. 27, 2014. The couple married April 3, 1954 and had 59 happy years together.

Edith was born on May 26, 1927 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania,  daughter of the late Charles and Mary (Chamberlin) Reed. She was a 64-year member and past Worthy Matron of the Eastern Star Maxwell Chapter #233. Edith was an avid bowler and bowled twice a week into her 90s and was awarded the Good Sportsmanship Award. She was inducted into the Troy Hall of Fame. 

Edith was baptized in the creek at Bakerburg Church and attended church regularly. Edie loved everyone. Every Friday she would fold bulletins with Lucy Green, Edie Bailey and Gladys Starkey. She enjoyed this time and would go to the Iron Skillet with them for lunch, then take a ride up on Armenia Mountain. Her visits with Garry and Carol Zuber and Ozzie and Angie Osgood were always the highlight to her Friday outing. Edith’s Saturday nights were filled with the music of Lawrence Welk and Polka bands. She was a homemaker but moreover was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
