 Born in Athens, AL to Edgar and Sudie Pack Shores, Edith made New Ellenton her home since 1953. She found great joy in various passions, from her love for bowling to tending her garden. However, one of the deepest sources of happiness was the time spent fishing alongside her cherished late husband, Doug. Together, they were proud charter members of the Euwana Boat Club in Plum Branch. Edith was a longtime member of Aiken Church of Christ, where she remained actively involved as long as her health allowed.
