Edward TWYMAN Greene, a native of Rockbridge County, son of Maynard and Nan Hostetter Greene, passed away on June 18, 2021. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother, Earl Wallace Greene, and his first wife, Jackie Snyder, and step-son, John Hamilton.

Twyman was born and raised in Rockbridge County. His parents built and operated South River Market for many years. Twyman grew up in the store environment where he served the public, learned work ethics and laid the foundation for his life's work of serving others.

After high school, he graduated from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science: his career began at Amole Funeral Home in Buena Vista. He was also associated with other funeral homes in the valley. He moved to Edinburg and opened his own funeral business in September 1991, purchasing an abandoned church building at Bowmans Crossing, which he remodeled, established and operated as Valley Funeral Chapel for 25 years until his retirement. During this time, he served the community in civic clubs and served his church, and a member of the Hamburg Ruritan Club holding numerous offices.

He loved serving people and was always ready to help those in need. He had a reputation for kindness and thoughtfulness and had many caring friends.

Twyman had varied interests throughout his life. He enjoyed hunting, taxidermy, (taught by good friend, Jimmy Bowers), surveying, gardening, cooking, needle arts and traveling by ship, bus, car or riding with scooter club buddies.

Survivors include his wife, Judy Hamilton, his daughters, Nancy (Buck) Jones, Judy (Mark) Updike and Michael (Anita) Greene; granddaughters Andrea and Jessica Jones, Callie (Corey) McWilliams; and a sister, Faye (Tom) Bradshaw. Step-children Philip (Bobbi) Hamilton, Jennifer (Joe) Catalano; stepgrandchildren; Tyler, Josh & Lindsey Hamilton, Hailey, Ashley, Morgan & Mia Catalano.

Much thanks and gratitude to our special friends of Johnson Funeral Service, Bridgewater VA for serving us.

Revelation 21:4: GOD will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; Neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more.

We knew Twyman first as our neighbor and then as our friend for more than 50 years. We sure do miss him.
