Edith "Edie" Finch (ˈiːd.ɪθ ˈe.di ˈfɪntʃ) was the wife of Sven Finch and the maternal great-grandmother of Edith Finch, she was also the firstborn and the only daughter of original family patriarch Odin Finch. Of the Finches, she lived the longest at 93 and experienced every one of their lives and deaths.
- Edie lived from 8th April 1917 - 5th December 2010 making her 93 years old at the time of her death and on the 8th April 2018 she would be 101 years old.
- Edie is interpreted by her granddaughter 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 drank it, comitting suicide after falling into a state of despair.
