On October 4, 1959, she married Donald Lee Scheibe at the Methodist Church in Marysville, the current Lee Dam Art Center. They were blessed with three children, Claude, Kenneth and Kimberly. When Edith was in high school she worked as a waitress at the Skyline Café, Marysville. Don and Edith’s courtship started at the Skyline Café. After their marriage, Edith was very fortunate to spend 16 years following Don around the United States while he was in the Army. They lived in Okinawa for 4 years. After her and Don made their permanent residence in Summerfield, she managed the Irish Inn. While Claude was in school in Summerfield, Edith was known to sneak food into the school for Claude and some of his friends, if they didn’t like the lunch that day. Edith was also a cook at the Classic Café in Summerfield and Wild Bills Saloon in Baileyville. Edith was known for her fried chicken and mashed potatoes; people would come for lunch just to enjoy her homemade food. Anyone who knew Edith knew her 2nd love was for Elvis Presley. She was thrilled to visit Graceland twice in her lifetime and talked about her trips many times. Edith’s hobbies included plastic canvas, watching soap operas and game shows. She loved spending time with her family and watching hummingbirds outside the living room window. She loved collecting Elvis memorabilia and “hunting” fiberglass cows and teddy bears in Kansas City. Before getting sick she loved to follow her kids and grandkids sporting activities. Edith was past President of the Summerfield Centennial. Member of the Summerfield American Legion Auxiliary and later transferred to the Beattie American Legion Auxiliary where she was currently Treasurer and Membership Chairwoman. Preceding her in death were her parents; and brother, Robert Wells. Survivors include her husband, Don; sons, Claude (Lori) Scheibe, Summerfield, Kenneth (Michelle) Scheibe, Beattie; daughter, Kimberly (Bryce) Goings, Beattie; brother, Charles (Carol) Wells, Marysville; sister, Shirley McLeod, Salina; and grandchildren, Andrea (Keith) Heideman, Jared (Renee) Scheibe, Gavin Scheibe, Khristian Scheibe, Zachary Scheibe, Noah Scheibe; and great grandchildren, Jayden, Kodi Ann and Ephrum Heideman and Kathryne Scheibe.
