Edith Mae McGlynn
Edith (Edie) Mae McGlynn, a vivacious beauty at age 92, passed away on Sept. 26, 2022, in Lake Placid, surrounded by loved ones.
She was born on Aug. 12, 1930, in Roxbury, Vermont, she was the daughter of Oliver and Lillian Belle Hazelton.
Always a twinkle in her eye, Edie lived with intention and devotion to the many interests and activities of her children and grandchildren.
Together with her husband, John B. McGlynn, they raised seven children until his passing in 2004. Edie welcomed cows, horses, a ram, chickens, geese, turtles, snakes, the occasional hawk, and a brood of St. Bernard’s while renovating an 1880s French colonial.
Edie is remembered as a grandmother to Shayne, Tyler, Stanzi, Robert, Richard, Colin, Alec, Kendahl, Birk and Katrina. When not going trick-or-treating with a grandchild, Edie enjoyed being a fashionista, aspiring artist, accomplished gardener and life-time skier.
While growing up in Peekskill, New York, Edie was a cheeky, peppy cheerleader for many sports teams and those traits grew stronger throughout her active life. She was especially proud of her first post-graduation job in IBM’s burgeoning graphics department as a type-set designer and created the ‘dancing-girl’ graphic icon for a new keyboard. Edie was a female pioneer in the ski industry acting as a patroller and ski school director. Later in life, Edie was a licensed real estate agent and member of the EMT rescue squad.
Cherished sister of Elizabeth Anderson of Maryville, Tennessee, Edie was predeceased by Gilbert Hazelton, Lillian Belle Hayes of Surfside, South Carolina, Kate Marie Lundahl of Telluride, Colorado, and Henry Hazelton of Grafton, New York.
Edie is survived by Michael McGlynn of Lake Placid; Cynthia Bischak of Palatine, Illinois; Eileen McGlynn, of Maine; John McGlynn and wife Maggie of Waterbury, Vermont; Sheila Roufa and husband Lee of Telluride; and 11 great-grandchildren and four nieces and nephews.
