Colo­nial Dames mark found­ing mem­ber’s grave

Maryland Independent - - Community -

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.
