On January, 3rd, 1942 Edith married Edward Harry Bazar Sr. While their time together wasn’t nearly long enough, they had three sons, Edward Harry Bazar Jr., David Dean Bazar, and Thomas Raymond Bazar. Edith will be remembered as fiercely independent and hardworking. While she was fortunate enough to travel to various places around the world, one of her favorite spots was her backyard. You could frequently drive by and see Edy tending to her garden with the regular visitor, Quincy the cat. Other than gardening, Edith enjoyed going on bus trips with the Senior Center and visits to the casino with her granddaughter. She was previously honored to be East Hampton’s Old Home Days Senior of the Year. Her family and friends will forever feel her warmth from the many quilts she made for them always leaving one square to inscribe “with love”. Along with quilting, she spent countless hours crocheting hats and teddy bears for cancer patients. She is survived by her sons and their wives; Edward and Lois, David and Linda, and Thomas and Elaine; her grandchildren and their spouses, Robin Bazar Wallett and her husband Craig. Elizabeth Bazar Praskievicz and her husband Thomas, Shannon Bazar Lunn and her husband Marty.
