Dorothy Jewel (Carlsen) Edison passed away peacefully in her sleep of natural causes on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, with her husband Howard at her side.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her father, Harry Carlsen; mother, Hilda (Salquist) Carlsen; and brothers, Harry (Reg) Carlsen, Jack Carlsen and baby brother Donald Carlsen.

She is survived by her husband of over 67 years, Howard Edison; brother, Mark (Mike) Carlsen; sons, Jim Edison, Mark Edison and Jeff Edison; daughters-in-Law, Shirl Edison, Joye Edison and Lynn Edison; four grandsons, Jeff {Bryce), Tylor, Howie and Heath; four granddaughters, Amanda, Katie, Hannah and Amy; as well as one great-grandson, Aiden.

Dorothy was born June 13, 1932, in Spooner, Wis., and moved to Gardena, Calif., with her family in 1947. She graduated high school in 1950 from Gardena High. She married Howard Edison on April 13, 1951.

She was a legal secretary for several years before beginning several adventures with her husband, owning a resort on the Colorado River in southern California, moving to Fillmore, Utah, to own a cattle ranch, Western Auto Store, and a construction company. The next adventure took them to Kennewick, Wash., where Dorothy was an executive assistant for the president of a local bank.

Dorothy retired at the age of 62 and began traveling in their RV from Superior/St. Regis, Mont., to several places in southern Arizona. In 2008, they gave up RVing and settled full time in Superior/St. Regis in their beautiful little home on the Clark Fork River.

In 2014, they moved back to Richland, Wash., for health reasons. God gave her a beautiful and full life, which we are celebrating today. Montana was the place she always wanted to be. “Her” river, her house and her people — a fitting place for her celebration.

Services to be held Sunday, Sept. 23 at 1 p.m. in the Superior Community Church, located at 706 Main Ave., in Superior.
