Edith "Edie" Finch (ˈiːd.ɪθ ˈe.di ˈfɪntʃ) was the maternal great-grandmother and namesake of Edith Finch, the wife of Sven Finch, and the daughter of original family patriarch Odin Finch. She is the only Finch to last beyond multiple Finches lifetimes to the point she was one of the last Finches to be alive.
- Edie is interpreted by Dawn to be the unwitting instigator of doom who is responsible for most of the deaths in her family due to her belief in a family curse that helps justify one's mistakes and losses, resulting in the brooding of one's self-destruction. Another interpretation adopted by Edith, however, is that Edie is a woman who accepts and understands that death is a natural part of life and is not to be feared, leading to Edith developing an anti-nihilistic view on life.
- Adding to this dotpoint, Edie has experienced almost every death of a Finch member as a result of her continuing consciousness, creating a "Trauma Conga Line" effect.
- It is unknown what Edie's fate was after Dawn departed with Edith from the house. However, considering the argument between Edie and Dawn from earlier, it can be assumed she mixed her medication with alcohol and drunk it, comitting suicide after falling into a state of despair.
