Living a full ninety-seven years, she touched many lives, in many ways. She graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1942, and then moved to Old Hickory, TN where she began to work as a true “Rosie the Riveter” in the Vultee airplane factory. After World War II, or “the war” as she used to call it, she worked on one of the first computers at IBM, when they were “bigger than a room”. Edith met Walter Robertson before the war and they married in 1945. Entrepreneurial partners, Edith and Walter opened a construction company with Edith acting as accountant, interior designer and secretary of the company.

She was a friend, neighbor, farmer, gardener, caregiver, and business owner, however her real life’s work was her family.
