Edie 85, of Colts Neck passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family in the early hours of January 3rd at Riverview Medical Center. She was a loving woman who was deeply devoted to her family and friends. Edie enjoyed going to horse shows to see her children and grandchildren compete, going to the beach as a long time member of Driftwood Cabana club, and working at the Colts Neck Library.
