FIDEL: Edythe Fidel passed away Tuesday, February 23, 2016, in Pittsburgh. Daughter of the late Max and Leah Rogal, Edie, as she was known to her friends, and “Nanny” as she was known to her family, was a 1949 graduate of the University of Michigan. A speech therapist, she taught in the Pittsburgh Public Schools and volunteered at the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children. She met her husband Arthur at the Tarleton Resort in the Poconos in 1952, when she saw him across a crowded room and announced to her friend, “That is the man I am going to marry.” Their union lasted for almost 60 years until he passed away in 2012. She was devoted to her friends and family, and if you were lucky enough to be in that group, you could do no wrong. She was generous to a fault and there was nothing ever too much to ask of her. Her answer to the question “can you do me a favor” was never “what,” but simply “yes.” She loved people and they loved her back. Her vision may have been impaired, but she never lost sight of what was really important in life. Material things were not what mattered to her. She often said, “[m]y children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are my diamonds.” She was a “hands-on” grandmother, down on the floor playing with the grandchildren when they were young, spending countless hours in Chuck E. Cheese and attending every school play, holiday and birthday party. She could never do enough for them, spoiling them with love and gifts at every opportunity. Edie took nothing for granted; she appreciated all of the blessings in her life and as her advanced age posed health challenges, she never complained. She lived her life with strength, dignity and a positive outlook, and will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved her. Survived by Stephanie Fidel and Mark Huberman, Lieba and Billy Rudolph and Bob and Deborah Fidel. Sister of Sema (late Jack) Coppersmith. Loving “Nanny” of Michael, Jeffrey, Mordy, Elkie, Izzy, Leah, Sara, Mushkie, Mendy, Rivky, Sholom, Matthew, Noah and Joshua . Also survived by many great-grandchildren, devoted friends and wonderful caregivers. Contributions may be made to Friendship Circle, 1922 Murray Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15217 or Noah S.
