She was born on October 27, 1945, and lived in Highland Park, IL. She was the youngest of five children born to the late Stanley and Edith (Ralph) Peddle.
Edith worked at Cherry Electrical Products for over forty years. She was there when the company opened its doors in Highland Park, Il., then as it expanded operations in Waukegan, IL., and finally Pleasant Prairie, WI. This is where she met the love of her life, Leon Hughes.
She was married to Leon Hughes in Waukegan, IL., in 1981. They made their home in Kenosha, WI. Edith established many dear friendships during her lifelong career with Cherry and she kept in close contact with each over the years.
Edith was a member of St. Anne Catholic Church in Pleasant, Prairie, WI. She enjoyed attending Mass, spending time with her family and friends, going to the movies, reading books, watching her favorite shows and phone calls to her family and friends.
She was a TRUE friend to all who had the privilege to know her! She was a dear sister and a much-loved aunt. Her kind nature, smile, willingness to lend a helping hand and witty personality will be fondly remembered.
