While working for the Voice of America in Washington, DC, she met and married (2) Charles Jacob Affelder. She was a devoted grandmother to Amy and Gregg, Asa and Max,and a beloved step-mother to David Robert Affelder and Jessie Affelder. A talented artist, Edythe created masterful Sumi-e watercolors and cloisonne jewelry. She was a wonderful cook, and her fruit pies and pot roasts are still legendary among those who had the good fortune to sit down to dinner with this lovely lady. She had a dazzling smile.
