Linda Carolyn Edwards (Beville) gained her angel wings on Monday, January 1, 2018 when she unexpectedly left this earth.
Born in Gainesville, FL, Linda is preceded in death by her parents Leslie and Mae Beville. She is survived by her three children; Jackie van Schuppen (Donald), Lori Stone (Don) and Ricky Edwards; 2 Sisters, Waverly Munn; Michelle Vick (Rick) and Brother Robert Beville; Grandchildren Jamie Vick (Yoshi), Les Stokes, Chad Edwards, Donald Stone, Brandon Edwards, Kimberly Aldrich (Nick), Jonathan Edwards (Laura); Great Grand Children; Justice Vick, Taiki Vick, Mika Vick, Landon Stokes, Michael Coccaro, Ryan Aldrich, Nicole Aldrich, Michael Edwards, Cheyanne Edwards, Hailey Edwards, Jayce Edwards, and a host of extended family.
Linda was a long time member of Jonesville Baptist Church; she loved her pastor and church sisters. She loved working in her garden and her koi ponds. Vacations were spent in the Blue Ridge Mountains, hiking, shopping and antiquing, or at the 'Camp' 4 wheeling through the mud! Linda loved her fur babies, Dazzle and Tate, they will certainly miss her!
Many people say there is nothing like a mothers love, and they are right! Our mother was a wonderful Christian lady with a heart of gold. She was a caring and loving woman inside and out; we will miss her terribly, but take comfort that she is home with the Lord.
Funeral Services will be held Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Jonesville Baptist Church, 17722 SW 15th Ave, Newberry, FL 32669, with Rev. Corey Cheramie officiating.
