Edna was born October 19, 1946 in Houston to Lee T. Sharp and Evelyn Jean Buice Sharp. She attended Danville schools. Edna loved children and babysitting. She enjoyed making potholders and crafts. Edna was an excellent baker and made the best pies with the flakiest crusts around. She was such a joy to be around and could bring light to any room. She will be missed tremendously; however, our lives are brighter for having known Edna.

Edna was preceded in death by her parents, brother-in-law Ronnie Williams and sister Judy Felix.

She is survived by her sister, Merlyn Williams of Overton; brother, William Sharp and his wife Debbie of Lusby, Mass.; brother-in-law, A.J. Felix of Houston; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends whom she loved dearly.
