Marion, Va. / Belmont, Miss.
Edith Farris age 90, passed away Wednesday, March 22, 2023 in Belmont, Miss.
Edith was just an amazing human being. She was a loving wife, mom, grandma, sister and friend. Edith was a selfless lady who loved the Lord and made sure all of His children were fed – well fed; rolls, cakes, you name it and she could whip up something from nothing in just a minute. When Edith wasn’t with family or working in the kitchen, she loved to write poems and songs. Her kind and gentle way will be missed.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Harvey and Pearl Crewey; brothers, Claude, Marvin and David.
