Edith "Edie" McGhee Posey, 78 of Mechanicsville, MD, passed away on September 2, 2020 at MedStar St. Mary's Hospital, Leonardtown, MD.
She was born on May 1, 1942 in Eccles, WV to the late Henry B. McGhee and Delia (Davis) McGhee.
Edie was born and raised in Eccles, WV and graduated from Trapp Hill High School. On May 18, 1962, Edie married her beloved husband, Thurman Wilson Posey. Together, they celebrated over 30 wonderful years of marriage. She and her husband owned and operated Montana Snack Bar, which was known for its pizzas, for many years until they retired and sold it. She was an avid traveler and travelled throughout the U.S. She particularly loved Williamsburg, VA and other historic areas. She was an excellent cook and was known for many dishes, especially her biscuits. She loved decorating and celebrating the holidays and always prepared magnificent feasts for the family dinners. She especially loved Christmas and made sure every room was properly decorated including the exterior of the home. Instead of retiring, she remained very active working with the Center for Life Enrichment. She enjoyed watching birds, especially the hummingbirds and feeding the wild animals that lived in the surrounding woods.
