Edyth Rae Wilton, 75, one of the last genuine ladies and long time resident of Long Beach, went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 15, 2015 in Astoria. Edyth graced the world with her presence on December 1, 1939 in Ocean Park, Washington to Ray and Fannie Wilton. Ray Wilton was the owner of the Marona, the boat that held the record in the 1960's for bringing in 734 albacore tuna (approximately 12,000 lbs) in one run. She graduated from Ilwaco High School in 1957 where she was a member of the Glee Club and loved by everyone. She truly enjoyed attending her high school reunions and catching up with her "Old High School Chums". After high school, Edyth worked as a hand model for for Merle Norman, as a keypunch operator at Ilwaco Telephone Company, and as an accountant for Hirai Farms in Quincy, WA. Edyth had a deep love for music and could play the piano by ear. Often times she would break into song in daily conversation; it was like a musical in our day to day lives. Music could always be heard around her whether it was from her stereo or from her beautiful singing. After many of years of living away from where her heart truly was, Edyth moved back to the beach to be surrounded by the ocean, the sand, the lighthouses, the Coast Guard, and her high school chums. These are the things that meant so very much to her. She loved to walk the beach and look for limpets and agates, and taking her loved ones down there with her was such a pleasure in her life. She took great pride in her family, and especially in the men who served in the armed forces. She loved to look into her family history and learn all about the brave men and women that came before her and created the family that she held so dear. She also loved to go visit the Coast Guard men and women in Ilwaco. Edyth's greatest passion was introducing people to "Her Jesus". Even her answering machine said, "Do you know my Jesus? I would love to share his love with you!" That is how she lived her life and how she spent her time to her last breath. She is survived by her daughters Terry Rigdon (Jim) of Klipsan Beach, Debra Black of Long Beach and her sons Matthew and Jeremiah; Rebeca Piepel (Chris) of Wenachee and their daughter Samantha. She is also survived by her brother Walter Wilton of Spokane and her sister Karen Spurgeon of Chelan. Edyth was proceeded in death by her parents (Ray andFannie Wilton), her sister Doreen Weaver, and her grandson Ronnie. In lieu of flowers, Edyth's wishes were that donations be made to the Church of the Nazarene in Long Beach, Washington. So Edyth, as you make your way to Heaven, don't turn around, because this isn't goodbye, it's just see you later.
