Edie passed away at her home in Kingman after experiencing pneumonia.

Edith was born in Vici, Okla., and grew up at nearby Webb, Okla., until 1952 when the family moved to Enumclaw, Wash. where they lived for many years.

After retirement, she and Dino moved to Kingman where they have lived for the past 15 years.

She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and faithful friend.

Edith is survived by her husband of 47 years, Dean Graber, daughter Dewanna DeMoss, of Valencia, Calif.; daughter Karen Covey and son-in-law Roger Covey of Ninilchik, Alaska; son Ray DeMoss and daughter-in-law Susie, also of Ninilchik; daughter Kelli Uhde of Enumclaw; stepdaughters Penny, Debbie and Candy of Everett, Wash.; her beloved brother, Verne Lynes, also of Kingman; and her loving sister, Gleola France of Thermal, Calif.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Sam and Elnora Lynes; five brothers, Howard, Floyd, Irven, Ernest and Gerald; two sisters, Alveda and Ferne; her grandson, Bret DeMoss; and two granddaughters, Karen Lee and Terri Kaye Covey.

She was a remarkable, hard-working woman who loved her family, her home and visiting with friends. She was kind, generous, thoughtful and always helpful. She will be greatly missed by all of us.
