Edith Marie Pharr

August 9, 1934 — April 22, 2024

Edith Pharr, beloved wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother went to rejoice in her heavenly home with her Savior on April 22, 2024. Edith was born in Oxford, Nebraska on August 9, 1934, to Otto Hermes and Hilda Monter. She grew up in the small town of Arapahoe, Nebraska.


 Edith married Charlie Franklin Pharr on May 27, 1956. Charlie served in the Army and Air Force. The military and their love took them all over the country, living in several locations including Florida, Texas, Colorado, and Utah. Utah became their forever home where they resided for 61 years.

 

Charlie was a disabled Korean War veteran. Together they spent many volunteer hours working to help veterans receive the benefits they deserved. They made many friends and connections across the country with their service in the Disabled American Veterans organization.

 

Edith was as vibrant as the butterflies she loved and was a faithful Lutheran. She was incredibly social and enjoyed helping others. Growing up during the Great Depression, she saved everything and despised wastefulness of any kind. Some of her other hobbies included crocheting, sewing, crafting, gardening, and canning. She loved baby dolls and was a wiz in the kitchen. She will be most remembered for her kind smile and warm hugs with her iced tea in one hand and a plate of delicious cookies in the other.

 

Edith was a loving mother to Dawn (David) Cunningham. She adored her granddaughter Savannah Stokes and her great granddaughter, Symphony Stokes.

 

Edith is survived by her daughter Dawn, granddaughter, Savannah, and great granddaughter, Symphony. She is preceded in death by her husband Charlie, and her sister, Shirley Hawkins.


Edith is now rejoicing with her Lord and Savior in heaven.

 

            “Ye that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”  Matthew 24-12
