Obituary for Gwenda Lee Edwards

Gwenda L. (Williams) Edwards
April 03, 1940 – January 23, 2019
Wenatchee, WA

Gwenda L. (Williams) Edwards, 78, a 16-year Wenatchee resident, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family.

She was born on April 3, 1940, at Arlberg, Arkansas, to the late Onvie and Ola (Lamberson) Bane. She moved to Bridgeport, Washington, at the age of eleven, where she attended school. She later met and married Cliff Williams on November 24, 1956, at Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and made their home in Bridgeport raising 5 kids. She worked in the fruit packing sheds, Bridgeport grocery store and the Security Bank.

In 1982, she married John Edwards and became a Snowbird, eventually making their home in Spokane. She moved to Kirkland in 1993 to be closer to her mother, Ola Lamberson, while attending college and working as an Office Manager. She remained in Kirkland until moving to Wenatchee in 2002.

Gwen’s dearest and closest companion was her dog, Lady, and friends, Bobbie Turner and Karen Rudman. She was a member of the WVSAC Wii Bowling League and bowled a perfect 300 game. She loved slots, bingo, cards and visiting either on her phone or in person. She was an avid sports and racing fan. She enjoyed reading and trading books with her friends and family. And she most definitely loved her sweets.

She is survived by four children: Sonja Rhodes, East Wenatchee, WA, Chuck (Stephany) Williams, Puyallup, WA, Tammy (Rob) Ingram, Wenatchee, WA, and Jeff (Teresa) Williams, Bremerton, WA; brother, Ron (Hilde) Bane, Lacy, WA; sister, Sherry (Larry) Hansford, Lynnwood, WA; eleven grandchildren; seventeen great-grandchildren and seven great-great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, a son, Dave Williams, son-in-law, Bill Rhodes; and boyfriend, Bill Schultz.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 p.m., on Saturday, February 23, 2019, at Heritage Memorial Chapel, 19 Rock Island Road, East Wenatchee, WA, with a potluck reception to follow. You are invited to visit Gwen’s online tribute at www.HeritageMemorialChapel.com to leave a condolence or share a memory. Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel, East Wenatchee & Cashmere.
