SisterEdith Kahler

“I have loved you with an everlasting love.”

Sister Edith was born February 26, 1930. Her parents, Otto and Clara, were devout German immigrants. So, she and her siblings, Otto and Loretta, grew up in a loving environment.

Her teaching career spanned 55 years and was filled with many challenges. Her first 25 years of teaching were in Michigan and another 30 years were in her beloved New Mexico. After retirement, she did 500 hours of service in hospital volunteer work, years on the prayer line, and volunteer jobs.

Sister Edith was blessed by God with both a loving family, community, and many friends. The summer after receiving her Master’s degree, her family took her to Germany, and she visited their homeland. They stayed abroad a whole month and visited six countries. She says, “Thank God for the many adventures and blessings in my life.”
