Edith Louise Rambo

EINAN’S FUNERAL HOME

Edith Louise Rambo, 90, of Kennewick, Washington, passed away July 15, 2006 in Kennewick. She was born June 11, 1916 in Mt. Vernon, Washington to Herman and Nellie Benson and grew up there.

Edith lived very much within each moment with a powerful faith and a fondness of others, rarely setting her mind to anything that could interfere with her ceaseless nurturing the very best spirits in her family and friends. Her sense of humor, optimism and playfulness was very compelling. Edith enjoyed singing and playing guitar and piano with her twin sister Olga.

As a young lady she promised her mother she would look after the health of her older brother Walter, who came home from the fall apple harvest one year with his friend, Norman, who she married in Mt. Vernon, and with two sons moved to Skamania County in 1959, retiring in 1978 to East Wenatchee, where she will finally rest with her mother Katherine Rambo and Norman, at Evergreen Memorial Gardens

Preceding her in death were twin sister Olga, brother Walter, sisters Hilma and Ruth, and her husband of 55 years, Norman Rambo, in March 2005. Survivors include sons Charles Rambo of Richland and Richard Rambo of Wenatchee; brother Robert Benson of Mt. Vernon; sister Ellen Bakke of Mt. Vernon; grandchild Ashton of Tacoma.

Graveside services will be held 9:00 AM Saturday, July 29, 2006 at Evergreen Memorial Gardens, East Wenatchee, Washington.

  • Edie brought a lot of joy into our lives by her warm hospitality. We were always welcome and we often had delicious meals with them in their home. She was a wonderful example of love and sharing and doing for others and we are so grateful for the many special memories we have of Edie and Norman. She will be missed.

  • Mom was left-handed and Aunt Edie was right-handed. Mom had to learn to use her right hand when she wrote in school. Neither one of them had very good handwriting. Aunt Edie moved away when I was five and Mom would write to her twin every week, and I would scribble a note to Rick, which she would stick in. We looked forward to her letters even though it wasn’t always easy to decipher them. She would write up and down and around and around after she signed off trying to fill every bit of the paper.

    The last time I saw Aunt Edie she was sneaking cookies left and right so Chuck took the frosting off her cake, so she reached in and grabbed a handful of frosting off Aunt Ellen’s cake. I miss her. She told me she nursed me a time or two when she was nursing Rick. It seemed like the thing to do she said.

  • We were sad to hear of Edie’s passing. She was a great lady with a joy and love for God and each one of us. We smile as we remember her ‘whispers’ to Norman that the whole room could hear. Her faith was unfailing and we will miss her.

    With our sincere sympathy to Rick and Chuck and family–

  • Edie & Norm — such a special couple — a joy to be around!Their hearty laughter was so contagious – and very much appreciated. The verse: ‘A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.’ could surely apply to Edie and Norm. We loved our times together with them.
