Mary Ann Watson Edmonds, 85, of Maryville, loving wife, mom, Nana, sister, and friend went home to be with her Lord and Savior Thursday morning May 14, 2020.

Condolences to the Edmond's family.... I'm sorry for your loss.
I remember your sweet folks Mary Ann & Roddie at West Haven Baptist Church, which was probably over 30 years ago. I'm celebrating Mary's homecoming & praying for your comfort & peace. 1 Cor 2:9
