For many years, Sister Edith gathered men and women for a prayer group at Mercy Center. In 2002 she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Italian American Community Center.
Survivors include her sister, Sister Faith Francione, RSM, sisters-in-law, Florence (Albert) , Gerry (Ernest), nieces, a nephew, and the Sisters of Mercy.
