Edith Lloyd Kimsey, age 94, of Wilmington, DE passed away January 11, 2018 at Compassionate Care Hospice, St. Francis Hospital.

Edith Lloyd Kimsey was born in a row house in northern Delaware in the summer of 1923.

Edith grew up in Marcus Hook, PA before her mother passed away. After her mother’s passing, Edith moved in with her Aunt and Uncle in Denton, MD and then with her sister, Lillian Wright in Chester, PA. While living with Lillian, Edith became a big sister to her nieces, Dorothy and Louise.

Edith enjoyed life and people. From her mid fifty’s to early seventies she worked part time in the nursery at Holiday Lanes Bowling Alley. Over the years, she was known as Ms. Edie and to this day grown adults remember her from when she cared for them as toddlers in the nursery.
