Born in Brooklyn, NY, the only daughter to Max and Rachel Mandelkorn both deceased. Her older brothers, Leon and wife Lee both deceased, Sidney and wife Rose both deceased, and Eugene and wife Estelle both deceased were her hero’s, and the passing of each left a hole in her heart.

In the late 90’s they moved to Arizona residing in Scottsdale and Sun City West. About a year after Saul died, Edy moved to Leawood, Kansas with her daughter and son-in-law.
