Edith Lorene VanHorn, 87, of Fairmont, passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday (Dec. 19, 2017).
She was born in Nicholas County, on Jan. 6, 1930, a daughter of the late Kelly Scott Riddle and Leah (Hinkle) Riddle.
She was a member of the East Grafton Lions Club, and enjoyed quilting and gardening, and could out-fish anyone. She loved spending time outdoors at her family cabin on the Elk River, and loved spending time with her family.
Edith is survived by her loving husband of 70 years, Paul M. VanHorn, of Fairmont; her daughter, Evelyn Carson and husband Jeff, of Fairmont; a special granddaughter, Alisha Brumfield and husband Church, of Huntington; and three great-grandchildren, Bryan Adams, of Huntington, Patricia Byars-Curry and husband Stephen, of Morgantown, and Joselyn May, of Huntington.
She is also survived by three great-great-grandchildren; a brother, Scott Riddle and wife Yvonne, of Huntington; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Paul Wayne VanHorn, and her sisters, Myrtle Evelyn Riddle and Lula Belle Riddle.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Amedysis Hospice for their kind and compassionate care, and ask that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to the Alzheimer's Association, West Virginia Chapter, 1601 Second Ave., Charleston, WV 25387.
