RIP Edith Macefield.
A while ago, I talked about the little old lady (Edith Macefield) whose house was being eaten by a proto-Trader Joe's. Edith has passed on. All she wanted was to spend her days in her house. Congratulations Edith; you got that.
There are some charming post-scripts to Edith's story. The company doing the new construction make some preparations for absorbing Edith's lot into the building; should it become available. I'll be very interested to see how that works out. Second, a construction manager took care of Edith (groceries, errands) and she may have left the house to him.
