Our family are very sad to hear the passing of Genie. She was an amazing woman. Sending our deepest sympathy and condolences to the family. We still live in the home we purchased from Genie.
A beautiful lady who is loved by many special people.
She raised a wonderful group of men and made everyone feel welcome and loved.
I am blessed to have the pleasure of sharing a few meals and good times with this wonderful soul.
I hope for peace for the entire Edwards family.
Genie was second mom to me growing up; she was and always has been a blessing in my life; to my brothers Gary, Mike and Robbie, I miss you guys and I will most certainly miss mom, she is a beautiful person with an incredible heart and passion for giving, Genie is someone we all should aspire to be !
Genie was a blessing and I enjoyed her humor and having her as a sister in the Lord. She will be missed, but will have a ball with her Lord and will certainly be waiting on the rest of us to join her. The Edward’s family is in my prayers for their loss.
Gary, Robbie and the entire Edwards family. Our deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. We are sorry to hear about your loss. The Shaw’s
Not that I have to tell, but I will anyway, your mother was an amazing woman! We are friends from church. She was always smiling and truly lit up any room she walked into. Please find comfort in knowing that she is with her Lord. We are all praying for you during this difficult time.
