RIP, Edie

I hope I am not out of line reporting this as I did not know her well personally, but it seems appropriate to note this passing here.

Forum member Edie Roberson of Salt Lake City, Utah, passed away recently. Her SMB, "Alice", was the first I got to see inside thanks to her generous offer. She was very excited to show it off to us. I wish I had gotten to see her driving Alice around Salt Lake, a sweet old lady driving around in one of the most badass rigs in town. I believe she had the inside done custom to facilitate her artistic endeavors. You should look her up online, she did some interesting art. ... =172172423

All the best to her family.

Re: RIP, Edie

Always sad to lose someone with an obvious passion for life.

Found some info on Edie. It's a shame she never shared her artistic gift here on our forum.


SMB-less as of 02/04/2012. Our savings account is richer, but our adventures are poorer.

Re: RIP, Edie

Sorry to hear this. I remember when she thought her van was stolen but somebody just took "Alice" to get washed IIRC.
What a modest lady... I never knew she was an artist.

[edit] Here is a picture of Edie & Alice

condolences to the family and those who knew her personally

"Mirror of Eternal Feminine Virtue" is wonderful. It would have been a real pleasure to have met her.
