Statement of Denise Merrill on the Passing of Edith Prague
“Edith Prague was a legend and powerhouse in eastern Connecticut. To say that Edith was ambitious, steadfast, and a force to be reckoned with would be a massive understatement.
I shared a district with Edith that included UConn for many years, and I knew her to be a fierce advocate for those she believed were being mistreated, and she never, ever backed down.
I will miss her charisma and fearlessness. I grieve with her family and all who knew her. Her legacy as a zealous advocate will live on through the countless lives she impacted.”
