Edie was a homemaker extraordinaire and always made sure that her family was cared for and safe. She loved the Lord. Besides her family, her greatest joy was serving Jesus. She was involved in many mission trips, apartment ministries and children’s ministries, too numerous to mention. Edie was an amazingly faithful prayer warrior, and many came to her for prayer in their time of need. Her strong spirit and her contagious giggle were an inspiration to us all and she will be missed.
