Edith May Reinhardt

Edith May Reinhardt passed away on October 30, 2022, at the Adler Center in Aldie, VA. She leaves behind a legacy of character and faith…forever etched in the hearts of all who knew her. She was a small, but mighty woman who fiercely loved her family and made friends everywhere she went. Even in her final days at the Adler Center, she won the hearts of the wonderful staff there and we would like to thank them for the care and kindness they showed her and to the almost 40 loved ones who came to say good-bye.

Edith is survived by her very large family of 9 children, 2 “adopted” daughters Cathy and Traci, 23 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren (plus 1 on the way), and her dear sister Ruth.

A spring service in Manassas Virginia will be held on a date yet to be determined. A service & Celebration of Life will be held in early summer in Lunenburg, MA. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to Capital Caring Hospice – The Adler Center in Edith Reinhardt’s name. You may use the link on this page or mail your donation in her name to 3180 Fairview Park Drive, Suite 500, Falls Church, VA 22042

More memories of Edith May Reinhardt

  1. I met this beautiful soul 41 years ago when she came to work for AT&T in Freehold, N.J. We didn’t work together long but forged a very deep friendship that endured through births, deaths, relationships, marriages, careers and life in general across multiple states. There were times when it would be a few months between conversations but we picked up where we left off and always ended the conversation with “love you”. She always brought a smile to my face with her love of family, life and new adventures. She was fearless, strong, determined, forgiving and above all, loving. She found the best of life in everything. I will miss our conversations, visits and adventures together but she will always be with me. Love you always Edith.

  2. My mom, Edith took me in due to hardships in my life at 26 years old and during that time she was caring for my father Bernie who was terminally ill. Once Bernie passed away it seemed Edith was slipping ever deeper into depression as the days passed while I continue to go out to DC for music and dinner. One evening I encouraged her to come with me and we ended up at an Argentine grill for dinner and a few doors down at The Saloon on M St in Georgetown for Jazz where she recognized more of the songs than I did.

    During the evening we enjoyed the Jazz but I sat and watched as the several older gentlemen on hand made their way closer one by one in order to have a conversation with Edith. She kept trying to include me but I resisted then the guy with the cowboy hat introduced himself. Tex caught Edith’s attention and I was no longer important.

    That I believe was the turning point where Edith realized her potential for life after marriage and the rest is history. I never underestimated my mother
