She’s left an empty hole in our heart and was the most determined and full of willpower, so full of goodness.

I met Ms. Edwards in 1971 when she was the administrative assistant at Parkridge Medical Center, then moved on to the supervisor of admissions when the hospital opened. I was just a kid when I was hired and I remember her as a little lady who packed a big wallop. She ran her department with class. All her “girls” loved her! She was an impeccable dresser! We all were required to wear dresses/skirts back then!! After a couple of years they finally allowed us to wear “pant suits,” but the tops had to come down to the tips of our fingers. While Ms. Edwards was a no nonsense lady, she knew how and when to laugh! She remained the same each time I saw her in the jewelry store at the mall..... a sweet lady with a smile for everyone, especially her “girls”. ❤️❤️❤️

I didn’t meet Ann til November when I lost both of my parents and I had just got out of rehab-she was soooo nice and welcoming- although I didn’t get know her she made a long lasting tremendous positive impression on her and thank God for allowing Ann and I to get to know each other-neither Trena nor I will ever forget her -

To Ann's Family take care of yourself and keep in touch

❤️❤️ ya

I had the pleasure of doing Ann's hair every Wednesday at 4:00 for the past 15 years. Undoubtedly, she was one of my most favorite clients. She was a very special and lovely lady and I will miss her dearly.

I had the pleasure to work with Ann for several years. There never was a day that I didn’t look forward to working with her. She was kind, honest, caring, and a hard worker. I loved her not only as a co-worker, but as a friend. We’d spend slow days laughing and talking and she’d often offer her wisdom when I needed it; a good friend. I’m so sad to hear of your passing. I look forward to seeing you again and have comfort knowing you’re at peace and in the presence of the Lord. I will miss you, Ann.
