Edie L. Kovacs, 82, of Vienna, Ohio, passed from this life on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, at home with her husband by her side and her favorite music playing.

Edie was born on April 5, 1939, in Masury, Ohio, a daughter to Rhinold & Alice (Dunkerley) Schultz.

On January 30, 1957, she married the love of her life, Paul Kovacs. Together they started a family and born to this union were 3 daughters: Debra (Rae) Winfield, Carol (Jeffrey) Tharp, & Paula Link. Furthermore, they share 7 grandchildren: Rachele (Randy) Keller, Ryan (RickiLea) Winfield, Jacob, Taylor, & Gabrielle Tharp, and Jordan & Jared Link. She also leaves behind 5 great-grandchildren: Austin, Addison, Lucas, Isabella, & Paul; as well as her brother, John Schultz; and cousin, Jeannie Poto.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and sister, Martha Camuso.

She was a loving, caring, and generous person. She always remembered her family and friends on special occasions. Edie was known for being the first to decorate for the next upcoming holiday, particularly with her outdoor decor. Christmas was her absolute favorite holiday and she would actually begin decorating in early November.

Edie loved watching the Hallmark Channel, drinking Pepsi, and eating potato chips. It brought her the greatest joy to spoil her daughters, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, especially after she discovered how to shop on Amazon!!

Following her husband’s retirement, Edie & Paul loved traveling and boating. They liked socializing with their dear friends and enjoyed their many adventures.

In accordance with her wishes, a private service will be held.
