Ida Bell Edwards


Ida Bell Edwards was born on April 21, 1952 in Luverne, AL to the late Arthur and Lena Mae Moore. To their union, twelve children were born, of which, Ida was the youngest. Ida met and married Benjamin Franklin Edwards. To their union, four children were born, Annie Edwards, Benjamin F. Edwards, Jr., Preston Edwards and Mathilda Edwards.
Her husband was a career serviceman with the United States Army; therefore, Ida and the children traveled and moved from base to base. Ida's commitment to raising her brood in such transition allowed for a warm and safe environment. She was one filled with laughter and enjoyed being surrounded by her family and friends.
Mrs. Ida B. Edwards passed from this life on November 15, 2013 at Schoellkopf Health Center in Niagara Falls, NY. She leaves to cherish her memory, her four precious children; eight grandchildren, Porsha Edwards, DariusEdwards, Alicia Lamar, Shaquan Jernigan, Angel Jernigan, Julian Smith, Aaron Edwards and Jayden Edwards; three great-grandchildren; six sisters, Laura Mae Colvin, Janie Mae McGhee, Nellie Jean Austin, Louise Mahone, Sarah Gregory and Pearline Holloway; and other relatives and friends.
Services will be held on Friday, November 22, 2013  at 11 AM in the WILLIAMSON FUNERAL HOME, 635 Main St. Burial at the convenience of the family.
