1925 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
Age 89, of Arlington, Virginia, died Friday, July 25, 2014. She was born to the late Charles and Marie Price of Swissvale, Pennsylvania May 17, 1925. Lois graduated from Swissvale Senior High School in 1943 and went on to marry her sweetheart since middle school, William "Bill" R. Edgar, for a union lasting over 69 years. Lois and Bill spent the next 30 years as an Air Force family, with duty stations throughout Europe and the U.S. Eastern Seaboard. During those happy and exciting years, the couple had two children, James and Lori, both of whom were with her on the day of her death. Lois was active throughout her life beginning as a roller-skater and majorette and continuing as a leader in Military Wives' Clubs, matron to the troops and their families, and member of the United Presbyterian Church. Upon retiring from the military, Lois and Bill settled in Northern Virginia where they remained, excepting trips to Acapulco, Geneva, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, California, and cities across the USA. One of her greatest joys was the time spent at their beach condominium in Bethany Beach, Delaware. Often she would pick blackberries and peaches with her young grandchildren and then make for them delicious treats to the delight of all. Lois' skills in the kitchen were legendary. Lois is survived by her husband, Bill; her son, James, of Falls Church, Virginia; her daughter, Lori, of McLean, Virginia; three grandchildren; and a great- grandson. A Service honoring her life will be held Tuesday, July 29, 2014, at Little Falls Presbyterian Church, 6025 N. Little Falls Road, Arlington, Virginia 22207, beginning at 1 p.m. Funeral Services will be held at Ft. Myer Chapel and interment in Arlington National Cemetery at a later date. All inquiries to Advent Funeral Services, 703-241-7402.
