  1. Hello, my name is Geraldine Nicholson Schwark. I live in Escanaba. Edith & I were cousins. My Mom, Apolina Pirlot Nicholson and Edith’s Dad were first cousins. I went to school with Edith from kindergarten thru 10th grade at Bark River. Then my family moved to Esky where I finished my last 2 yrs. I did not know she came back to Bark River. I found out last night about Edith’s passing from another classmate. So sorry to hear the sad news. Edith & I were close in school, but lost touch. So sorry !!!

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time. I worked with her 40 out of the 47 years and she will be truly missed. Let the memories of all the good times carry us thru.

  3. I knew Edith for a short time at Weyco. What I learned about her though, was that she was soft spoken very quite but always carried a warm and
    friendly smile. She had a very good work ethic
    and loved what she did! To her family & friends
    I wish you strength and endurance. She lived a
    long life. We at weyco pray for comfort and peace
    as you journey through this hardship.

  4. I didn’t know Edith very well… as she retired about 6 months after I started working for Weyco last year. What I do know about her is that she was one of the only people who was incredibly kind to me right off the bat. Being the youngest and newest face in the office was a bit intimidating, but Edith showed me her soft side and made the transition a bit easier, even if it was only with a smile or a “good morning kiddo”, or a little quip calling someone out on their BS.
    I’m incredibly sorry for your loss, and want you to know that Edith helped make my first few weeks at my first real job much better.

    Regards,
    Spencer

  6. I was shocked and saddened to hear of Edith’s passing. She and I began working at Weyenberg/Weyco at around the same time so we had a 46+ year history and we shared many stories. I will miss her. Rest in peace, Edith.

  7. Edith….
    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rain fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
    Rest in Peace Edith! You and your SMILE will be dearly missed.
