The Lady Jane Sewall Chapter of the Colonial Dames 17th Century recently marked the grave of one of its founding members, Vivian Edelen, of Bryantown. Along with members of the chapter, Edelen’s son, Ned Edelen, was present.
Her grave also bears the insignia of the Daughters of the American Revolution, an organization she served in many capacities.
Edelen will be remembered for the eloquent letters she wrote, the high standards she set for herself, the enduring friendships she cherished and the remarkable legacy she leaves behind. She met everyone with a warm greeting, engaging smile and helping hand.
