Edith Moura Hyatt, well known in Brewster, NY as The Flower Lady, passed away peacefully in her home on July 27, 2019, at the age of 86.

She was born on May 18, 1933 in Macaparana PE, Brazil to Zilda and Zaqueu Moura. It was love at first sight when she met Barry Hyatt in Recife, Brazil, and they married on February 22, 1958. Shortly thereafter they moved to Rio de Janeiro, then London, followed by New York, before finally settling in Brewster in 1962.

In addition to being loyal and devoted in marriage for 61 years and raising their three children, Edith worked as co-owner and Vice President with her husband in their business, Air & Marine Travel, in downtown Brewster. She volunteered with the Putnam Hospital Auxiliary, serving over 55,000 hours, working extensively at Brewster's Eagle Eye Thrift Shop, where she eventually became its Chairwoman.

Edith is survived by her husband Barry and their three children; Timothy (Keltoum), Rodney, (Liliane) and Denise (Fletcher). She is also survived by three grandchildren; Alana, Trevor and Maria Zilda, and by three great-grandchildren; Mina, Emanuela, and Izabel and additionally, by her beloved nephew, Frederico Moura.

The family will be receiving friends and family at the Beecher Funeral Home at 1 Putnam Avenue, Brewster, NY on Wednesday, July 31, from 4-8 PM. Remarks to be given by the family at 7 PM. Donations may be made to the Putnam Hospital Auxiliary.

Edith was one of my mother's (Mary Jane Fowler) best friends. They worked together in the thrift shop for many years.
The two of them would sometimes get me to work and when my son was young he would hang around the shop with them.
Edith was a true friend and was there at the end when my mom needed help and comfort the most. Always lively, always helpful, always positive that was Edith. The many hours she devoted to the hospital provide huge benefits to many in the community.
My husband and I send our deepest condolences to Barry and family. Edith will be missed by many.
