The family moved to Moyock in 1947 and became devoted members of Moyock Baptist Church. Mrs. Edge was retired director of Currituck County Department of Social Services. Her retirement years were spent indulging in her love of her home and yard, her family, and her life-long passion for British history.

Mrs. Edge was preceded in death by her sisters Frances S. Bivins, Lorranine S. Folwell, and Emma Lou S. Moore.
The funeral is planned for Sunday, February 7 at 3:00 p.m. at Moyock Baptist Church with the Rev. Vic Ramsey officiating, interment to follow at Moyock Memorial Cemetery, the Rev. Anne Dale officiating.

Anne, Jack and family,
My heart and prayers go to you for your loss, but Heaven’s gain. The Lord allows you to be around people of faith, what you do with the connection is precious. I met you, Anne, through a job connection in Hyde. I met you, Jack, through a faith based connection with my Mom. I believe we come from the best Christian raisings! My prayer is that you will be comforted and blessed by your Mom’s life. Cherish the memories – you had her longer than most of our generation. Love to you and the Christian upbringing that we were blessed to have. Love from Sandra and Dick

To Mom Edge’s family and friends,
You lost a mother….a grandmother…a friend…a mentor; you didn’t loose your memories…your love…your inherited talents and traditions! She will always be with you, and it will be the little things that will bring her back to you in an instant. May your love as a family sustain you all as you heal in your own way…in your own time. She is now in a perfect place with her beloved Norwood and at peace. I am honored to have known her. God’s blessings…

Mrs. Edge was my professional mentor and friend. She hired me for my first full-time job in the Department of Social Services. She was also instrumental in encouraging my daughters decision to attend Women’s College (UNCG). I will remember her kindness and integrity. What a joy it was to work with her. What a life well-lived!
