Obituary for Edna Washburn

Edna Washburn
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. John 14:27

Born May 31, 1929, Edna Mae was the 3rd gift given by God to Spurgeon and Lonnie Toms. Her parents and 4 siblings: John Henry, Dorothy, William Spurgeon Jr. and James preceded her in death.

Edna was known to many as a caring coworker, diligent homemaker, trusted business owner, superb cook/baker, selfless sibling, faithful church member, dear friend and a loving mother.

In her passing, she leaves Six Children; Herman, Bill, James (Sandra), Danny (Marjorie), Phyllis, and Teresa (Simon). Nine Grandchildren: Jonus (April), Armani, Lavon S. (Michi), Myron (Jessica), Alisha, Jamal, Lateshia(JJ), LaRae', & RaJen’e.
