Edith's middle name is given as "Ray" on her birth record. It is important to note that this record was filed in 1946 by a friend of the family, long after Edith's birth in 1880, as the birth was not reported within a year of when it took place. The report was part of New Brunswick Provincial Returns of Births and Late Registration, 1810-1906. (7) Elsewhere the middle name is spelled "Rae."
