Such helpfulness was found in her, —so much power to do, and power to sympathize, —that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength.” (Ch. 13, pg 107) She had gained respect for having raised her child as a well behaved young girl, and having provided for the both of them with an honest living as a seamstress, all the while being cut off from the rest of society.
Willa Cather writes, "…Tiny Soderball was to lead the most adventurous life and achieve the most solid worldly success" (142).

Make me a good woman and it don’t matter what else, how fat or how ugly or how poor!” (Meyer 458). Ruby Turpin places a serious emphasis on being a good person; she even believes that it is a person’s best quality. This is very characteristic of the Catholic religion: the goal to be the nicest, best version of yourself at all times. Furthermore, Mrs.Turpin never skips a chance to thank God for all that she has. She knows that she is lucky especially when she compares her life to those around her.
Her feast day is on August 9th. Edith was an incredibly admirable person, and continues to inspire people all over the world today. She sought philosophical truth her entire life which led to a very close relationship with God.

We can emulate St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross by being selfless, and putting others before ourselves.
