Edie was born on April 5, 1939, in Masury, Ohio, a daughter to Rhinold and Alice (Dunkerley) Schultz.

On January 30, 1957, she married the love of her life, Paul Kovacs.

She was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Martha Camuso.

She was a loving, caring and generous person. She always remembered her family and friends on special occasions. Edie was known for being the first to decorate for the next upcoming holiday, particularly with her outdoor decor. Christmas was her absolute favorite holiday and she would actually begin decorating in early November.

Edie loved watching the Hallmark Channel, drinking Pepsi and eating potato chips. It brought her the greatest joy to spoil her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, especially after she discovered how to shop on Amazon!!

Following her husband’s retirement, Edie and Paul loved traveling and boating. They liked socializing with their dear friends and enjoyed their many adventures.

In accordance with her wishes, a private service will be held.
