She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 32 years Vernon Funn, Sr. She is survived by stepson Vernon (Skip) Funn, Jr., stepdaughter Vernette Oliveira, and Germany cousin Helmut Schreiner (and his son Markus).
Edith enjoyed gymnastics, track, physical fitness, sailing, scuba diving, and any other endeavor that presented a challenge. Her proudest achievements were obtaining a lifeguard certificate as a 14-year-old, scaling Mt. Whitney (14,505 ft), and obtaining a pilot's license. International travel-- particularly to Australia where step-niece Cheryl Packman lives-- were highlights throughout her life.
Her outgoing personality, bold character, and adventurous spirit for an active life made her a very special person who will be sorely missed. Edith Romen Funn lived her life without regrets--as in her favorite Edith Piaf song "Non, je ne regrette rien".
