Mrs Dewling was one of the moms I will always fondly remember from childhood from her telling Mary to get up for Softball practice to raiding her delcious home made Irish Sweet Potatoes in the basement refrigerator. She was an incredible mother. Prayers to all of the Dewling family and everyone that was blessed to know her.

Mary, John, Lori, and family,

I am so sorry about the passing of your Mom. I just found out yesterday, as Laurie and I left on October 15 for overseas travel and were away for 35 days. Please accept our sincere condolences. We remember your Mom as one of the "gang" of which my Mom was part. Ms. Edie always seemed very fun loving to me and was so cute I always wanted to hug her. With her passing, another page in time has turned. We will miss her greatly.
