Memories Timeline


  1. Loved this dear lady with all my heart. She was one of the kindest persons I have ever met. Lots of fond memories of her and Wes when I was a child. Heaven has gained an angel. ♥️

  2. From the first time that I met Eddie I knew she was a loving, caring lady. My sister Debbie lived just a few doors from her. One day when I went down to see Debbie, she took me over to meet Eddie we sit on her porch we talked, laughed & had a wonderful visit. I knew right then I\’d be visiting this little lady more on my visits to my sister. Over the visits I got to know Eddie more she truly was a \”special little lady\”. I will cherish the times, laughter, talks & visits we had. Rest in peace Ms. Eddie. You was loved by so many of our lives that you touched & so many of us that was honored to have called you our \”friend\”. Kathy Caudill/Debbie Smith\’s sister that lived in Berea,Ky

  3. Edie was a remarkably wonderful person and had such a positive influence on so many at Perryville Methodist and elsewhere. She was one of those that many of us talk so fondly of many years later.
