NEWS - Edith Windross Daggy, 84, a longtime resident of Newport News, died
Monday, April 28, 2008, after a long, courageous battle with ovarian cancer.
In February of 1946, she and her infant daughter arrived in New York aboard a ship bearing war brides. A long train journey would bring them to Newport News, where Melvin had worked prior to the war as a draftsman for a local architectural firm. Edith joined and became an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church, where for decades she sang in the church choir and served in many missions of the church, especially Trinity Lutheran School. She loved books, music, art and flowers.

O Darkest Woe
Author: Unknown, 1628, Stanza 1
Stanzas 2-7 by Johann Rist (1607-1667), 1641
Translated by Catherine Winkworth (1829-1878), 1863
1. O darkest woe!
Ye tears, forth flow!
Has earth so sad a wonder?
God the Father's only Son
Now is buried yonder.
2. O sorrow dread!
God's Son is dead!
But by His expiation
Of our guilt upon the cross
Gained for us salvation.
3. O sinful man!
It was the ban
Of death on thee that brought Him
Down to suffer for thy sins
And such woe hath wrought Him.
4. Lo, stained with blood,
The Lamb of God,
The Bridegroom, lies before thee,
Pouring out His life that He
May life restore thee.
5. O Ground of faith,
Laid low in death.
Sweet lips. now silent sleeping!
Surely all that live must mourn
Here with bitter weeping.
6. Oh. blest shall be
Who oft in faith will ponder
Why the glorious Prince of Life
Should be buried yonder.
7. O Jesus blest,
My Help and Rest
With tears I now entreat Thee:
Make me love Thee to the last,
Till in heaven I greet Thee!
