Edith lived to age 105.
Edith met Henry Earle Myers while he was attending MIT in Boston. They were married on Oct. 3, 1910 in Newton Highlands, Mass.
Henry and Edith had three children:
Robert Cobb Myers, born 1911, died 1956.
John Alden Myers, born 1914, died 2000.
Priscilla Myers, born 1914, died 2007.
John & Priscilla were twins.
In 1917, Henry Earle Myers was hospitalized with duodenal ulcers. Medical care and technology were not nearly as advanced as they are now, and following exploratory surgery he developed a fatal abdominal infection. His last words to his wife Edith were: "Who turned out the lights?". He was dead at 31, leaving a widow with three young children.
In 1947, Edith remarried to Charles "Torrey" Allen, a widower living in an apartment at 2 Avon St. in Cambridge, Mass. Torrey died in 1977, and Edith continued to live at that same address until her death in 1991.
