Obituary: Edith Dicks Hoskins

1918 ~ 2003

Edith Dicks Hoskins, 84, died Saturday September 13, 2003 in Salt Lae City, Utah of natural causes.

She was born November 14, 1918 in Perry, Utah to George William Dicks and Elizabeth Inez Allen Dicks. She married Elvoid C. Hoskins June 6, 1942 in Malad, Idaho; the marriage was solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple February 19, 1963. He preceded her in death April 25, 1977.

Edith is survived by her three sons Jerald E. (Jacquline), Kent D. (Geraldine), Gordon C. (Brenda); 12 grandchildren; and 29 great-grand-children.

After the death of her husband, Edith served the Lord diligently as a worker at Welfare Square for 22 years. Many will remember Edith for her quick wit, others will remember her hand-sewn Christmas Even Pajamas and embroidered pillowcases.

The Hoskins family extends a special thanks to Robert Allen and his family who brought joy and unconditional friendship during the last years of her life.
