Edith T. Nowels: Rest in Peace

Edith T. NowelsIt is with great sadness that I report the death of Edith Thorne Nowels.

Edith was tireless, passionate and loving advocate who dedicated herself completely to causes she believed in. Edith T. Nowels was a patriot who loved America, and loved the men and women who fought for our freedom in our military.

Edith was a member of the Monmouth County Republican Committee for 41 years. For many of those years she was the Municipal Chairwoman of Brielle.

Edith spent much of her last years making sure that the Veterans of World War II were honored as those who survived the war aged and met their natural deaths.

She was forever promoting the memory of her brother, Cpl. Horace “Bud” Thorne, who sacrificed his life in Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge.

Below the fold, please view the videos of Edith parachuting last November with The All Veterans Group and the video tribute to her brother Bud’s life and sacrifice.
