Robin Evelyn Edmonds Obituary
Edmonds Robin Evelyn Edmonds, 55, left her earthly home in Reynoldsburg, Ohio April 26, 2017 to join her parents Adele Anderson and William James Anderson, and sister Stephanie Joy Anderson, in heaven. She has been a resident of the Reynoldsburg area for the past several years. She is survived by her husband of 29 years, William Dwight Edmonds of Reynoldsburg, Ohio; daughter, Adele Renee Edmonds of Alexandria, Virginia; sons, William Kenneth "Kenney" Edmonds and Kevin James Edmonds, both of Reynoldsburg, Ohio; brother, William James "Andy" (Wendy) Anderson of Budd Lake, New Jersey; sisters, Amy Gladys (Robert) Holley of Pickerington, Ohio, and Renee Allyson Anderson of Reynoldsburg, Ohio; sisters-in-law, Bobbie Edmonds Talley (David White) of South Boston, Virginia, Linda Gayle Edmonds of Raleigh, North Carolina, and Phyllis Diane Guisti of Erial, New Jersey; brother-in-law, Alis Edmonds of Danville, Virginia; and devoted lifetime friend, Robin Lampkin of New Albany, Ohio; along with a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. As a young child, Robin attended Mt. Olivet Baptist Church under the direction of Dr. Charles E. Booth, III, where she was baptized. Robin was a devout Christian. During her adult years, Robin and family attended World Harvest Church under the direction of Pastor Rod Parsley. Robin graduated from Eastmoor Academy in 1980, attended Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, and The Ohio State University. In addition to Reynoldsburg, Robin and her family have also lived in Raleigh, North Carolina; Birmingham, Alabama; Richmond, Virginia; Columbus and Massillon, Ohio. Robin spent the majority of her life caring, loving, and supporting her husband and children. Later on in life, Robin worked in the Reynoldsburg School District as a substitute office aide, "bringing joy and spreading sunshine." Robin was a proud Reynoldsburg Raider and was very involved with the band in which both her sons played. Robin was an extraordinary cook, enjoyed traveling, Korean dramas, and living life. She was a trusted friend to all that knew her, and a devoted wife and mother. She was the backbone of her family, put others before herself, and loved to see those around her smile. Robin loved the Lord, God, her family, friends and the Buckeyes. She was honest, genuine, smiled always, and had a heart of gold. Robin left a mark on every soul that she touched, and will be forever loved, missed, and remembered.
