Obituary of Mary Edith Compagnoni
Mary "Edith" Compagnoni (nee Marschall), of Turnersville, passed away on Monday, April 15, 2019. She was blessed to reach 92 this past November.
Edith will be remembered as a creative and intelligent woman who enjoyed spending time with her family, especially at Christmas. Her greatest pride and joy were her grandchildren and she spent the past 25 years spoiling them with love and affection. She took pleasure in reading, sewing, crocheting and knitting; cooking and baking, she will be remembered for her famous potato salad and her Easter Bunny cake. Edith always loved the challenge of a good crossword or jigsaw puzzle, and relished a high scoring game of Scrabble as well. She worked for a quarter century at Hurffville Elementary School where she was an exceptional math aide. Edith was blessed with many close friends and enjoyed hosting them poolside, where she will be missed this summer. She was extraordinary in her strength and love.
