Helen Edwards

Services for Mrs. Helen Edwards will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17 at Stephens Funeral Home of Union with Bro. Jon Martin officiating.

Helen was an active member of First Baptist Church of Union, where she was involved in many areas such as choir, children’s Sunday school and others. She also was a long-time member of the Present Day Club. She put others before herself, serving the elderly shut-ins as an example. 

She loved singing and enjoyed sharing her voice at any time she was called upon. One of her great passions was painting as exhibited by the many paintings that hung throughout her home. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at River Birch Estate Assisted Living in Union. The care and compassion extended to Helen during her stay there were most appreciated and made a difficult time much more bearable.

Her survivors include her husband, William “Bill” Edwards; two daughters, Debbie Sherret and her husband, Mike, and Sherri Livingston and her husband, Mark; three grandchildren Brian Sherret and his wife, Casey, Matt Livingston, and Brooke Freeman and her husband, Dan; a step-daughter, Diane LaRue Holman; and two step-grandchildren Tabitha Holman and Nathan Holman.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Burley Van Hatley and Cora Lee Davis Hatley; her husband Henry Austin Ozborn; and brothers Van Hatley, Jim Hatley, and Narbon Lee Hatley. 

Visitation will be held an hour prior to service at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be made to one of her favorites, St Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.
