Obituary for Edith May McCarson

Edith May McCarson (nee Green) was born November 12, 1931 in Oaklyn, NJ to Joseph and Mildred Green (nee French). She attended Collingswood High School, and after graduating went to work for RCA. She enjoyed forty-nine years of marriage to the late Raymond H. McCarson, with whom she literally built her home in West Deptford, swinging the hammer herself, and often bragging, “I drove in more nails than Raymond did.”

She enjoyed membership in square dancing, roller skating, and pinochle clubs, and spent many years in the Pal’s bowling league. She liked boating and fishing with her family and friends and spent weekends traveling in the family camper and was always up for a game of cards.

Edith loved her church, St. Paul’s United Methodist of West Deptford. She especially enjoyed serving at the ham and oyster dinners. For many years, she was part of the Guiding Lights Sunday school class, and enjoyed her friendships in the Paulette’s Women’s Group.

A dedicated homemaker, Edith devoted her life to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She loved taking pictures and home movies of her family, and for years could be seen shouldering her full-size VHS camera, capturing most every moment of family life.

Edith was most proud of her family including her children: Patricia Davis, Robert (deceased), John and his wife Debbie, Linda Seher and her husband Ken; her grandchildren, Heather Hudgins and her husband Mike, RJ Cooper, Eli McCarson (deceased) and his wife Jordan, Nathan McCarson and his wife Heather, Uriah McCarson, Josiah McCarson, Noah McCarson and his wife Melany, Willow Crispin and her husband Joshua; great-grandchildren Kenny Domeraski and his wife Samantha, Daniel Domeraski, Nadia Domeraski, Jasmine Domeraski, Eli McCarson, Zachary McCarson; great-great grandchildren Emma Domeraski and Avah Lowe.

Guests may visit with family from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church of West Deptford, 74 Church St, West Deptford, NJ 08086, on Saturday, November 12th. Memorial service begins immediately following at 12:00 noon. Burial will be private.
