Lillie Rae Kneece Edwards
INDIANA - December 12, 1932 - June 26, 2017. Lillie Rae Kneece Edwards passed away at her daughter's home in Indianapolis on June 26, 2017. Lillie was born in South Carolina. She spent many years as a working mother of 5. After retiring, Lillie moved to Wilmington, North Carolina, one of her favorite places. Lillie loved Wilmington and often walked downtown along the Cape Fear River. She shared her love of youth and community by doing volunteer work in Wilmington. Lillie cherished her time volunteering as a foster grandparent and sitting with newborns.
Lillie's sharp wit, strong character, loving heart and devotion to family will be missed deeply. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, known to many as Granny Rae. Lillie had 5 children (Magdalene Ames, Rebecca Boyd, Lee Edwards, Tracy Edwards and Stuart Edwards), 10 grandchildren (Heather, Tara, Jennifer, Stefanie, Quentin, Justin, Robert, Clayton, Breanne, and Shannon), and 17 great grandchildren (Hadley, Roman, Abraxas, Zen, Lucretia, Josiah, Kyler, Alden, Adeline, Justin, Jaxon, Tracy, Laurel, Becky, Spencer, Elijah and Robert).
Lillie is also survived by her sister Doris E. Preston and multiple nieces and nephews of South Carolina. Lillie will be laid to rest in South Carolina near her childhood home. Her memory will be carried in the hearts of all of those that knew and loved her.
