Obituary


It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of our loving mother and grandmother, Edith Margaret Mebane age 91. In 1947, she married the late Donald Mebane with whom she had four sons, Jeffrey, Michael, David, and Gregory; and two daughters, Donna and Angela.
 
Edith was a proud graduate of Dunbar High School in 1945 and received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and Educational Psychology from DC Teachers College, in 1972, while working for the US Postal Service. Edith had a passion for education and was known to be a tough yet caring teacher. She loved to cook, bake, and was deeply faithful within the Catholic Church. She also enjoyed spending time with her sorority sisters at the Xi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Inc. Undoubtedly, her greatest joy was reserved for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who always brought a smile to her face.
