Stephanie L. Edwards, 54, went to be with her Lord Monday, Aug. 20, 2018, after a courageous battle with Crohn’s disease. She was preceded in death by her aunt, Linda Waddell Owens, who “Stephanie Bear” loved dearly.

She was born July 18, 1964, in Rome, Georgia, to her parents, Pat Glenn and Glenda Waddell Martin. She had an infectious laugh that would make your heart smile with the best sense of humor. She was a caregiver by nature who put others first, an avid reader, a lover of thunderstorms, nature and animals.

In addition to her parents, survivors include her husband, Billy; daughters, Crystal and Chelsea; grandchildren, Levi, Ivy and Elly; sister, Kathy, and her husband, Brian; niece, Katie; uncle, Robert Owens; aunt, Carol; uncle, Jim; aunt, Val; father-in-law, James Edwards; brother-in-law, John, and his wife, Miyuki, and children; and many beloved cousins, lifelong family friends and Mrs. Bert.

The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 25, at Smith & Williams Funeral Home, where a celebration of life will follow at 11 a.m. A reception will follow at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Crohn’s & Colitis Disease; or a charity of choice.
