At 2 ½ years of age, the family moved to a ranch in west Cherry County, near Gordon, Nebraska where she grew to womanhood. She was the last of the 10 children to pass. In 1934 Edith married Roscoe Jelinek of Riverdale, where they raised registered angus cattle until retiring and moving to Kearney in 1977. To this union were born 7 children. As a young girl, Edith made her choice to serve the Lord, and clung to this choice all her days. Her faith in Him sustained her in many aspects of life. Roscoe and she hosted a fellowship service in their home for many years, and they cherished this privilege. Friends and ministers were always welcome in their home and there were sweet memories of those times. Theirs was a close happy family in a home where God was held in high esteem. Edith loved life, and loved people, enjoying doing what she could do for others. For over 25 years she made custom draperies as a business and met many people through this. Edith is survived by her children: Linda Pearson of DeLand, FL, Larry and wife Alice of Pagosa Springs, Co, Stuart and wife Beth of Overland Park, KS, Elaine Tipton of Kearney, Leon and wife Maxine of Broadwater, NE, Paul and wife Nancy of Omaha, Lori and husband Wayne of Carleton, MI, 22 grandchildren, 35 great grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, and friends. Edith was preceded in death by her husband Roscoe in October of 2001, five brothers, and four sisters.
