The Scannell family moved from Petersburg to Spencer in 1922 and in 1925 to their farm four miles north of Elgin.

While living there she met Eugene Henson, a friend of her brother George. Both were serving in the U. S. Army Air Corps at Chanute Field near Rantoul, Illinois.
Edith and Eugene were married in Elgin on November 15, 1941.

After Eugene’s retirement from the Air Force in 1967 they returned to Riverside and Edith lived there until 2006.
At that time the need for residence in a limited care facility led Edith to sell her home and move to Roseville to be near family. She resided there until her death.
