Monson-Edith M. Webster, 93, passed away at home December 9, 2021. She was born October 15, 1928 in Mystic, Ct to the late Ralph and Ada (Bancroft) Moulton. She moved to Monson as a little girl where she lived her entire life. Edie was a graduate of Monson High School and was a gifted art student. As a child before TV, she remembered riding her bike around town to the local swimming holes and exploring the woods around Lower Hampden Road where her family settled. At age 10 she walked to Springfield, running away from home with her older sister Charlotte to visit her sister Laura. Edie worked for many years at Massachusetts Electric, taking off 10 years to raise her two sons. She was active in the Monson Unitarian Universalist Church, teaching Sunday School and singing in the choir. After retirement she traveled the world with her niece, Grace, her favorite spot being Norway. Edie was a sport, hiking with her husband and two boys in the White Mountains during the sixties and a few years ago enjoying a few beers with her sons in Stowe Vermont, a place she always wanted to visit. She was one of the most responsible people and was always there for her family. Eddie was the last of sixteen off-spring between the two families. A special thanks to her nieces, Debbie, Dottie and her husband Larry and brother in-law Ike for loving support in the last few years and the wonderful professionals at Baystate Hospice.
Edith was predeceased by her husband E.J. Webster, Jr "Junior" in 2000. She leaves her sons Paul R. Webster of Ojai, CA and Steven J. Webster of Monson along with many extended family members and friends.
