Edith May Corey, 93 a lifelong resident of Brookline, NH passed away peacefully at her home on July 28, 2022. Edith was the middle child of 5 and was predeceased by three of her siblings Bernice Towne, Clarence Corey, and Erwin Corey.
Edith was born in Brookline, NH on August 3, 1928 daughter of Harry and Louise (Beaubien) Corey. She was raised and educated in Brookline and graduated from Milford High School.
Edith was a passionate cribbage player and regularly displayed her expertise in playing this game. She always seemed to know what card was going to show up as the pone and had an uncanny knack for knowing what cards her opponent’s were going to play. The only folks who could somehow best her were her great, grand nephews and nieces. Edith played cribbage right up to the night before her passing winning two out of three games.
She was known and very much loved for her sense of humor and was never shy about sharing her views on any subject and you always knew where you stood.
Family members include her sister Helen Dwire and husband Ralph Dwire of Lyndeborough, NH Sister in Law Anne (Tasker) Corey of Brookline, NH, several nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, and great grandnieces and nephews.
