Obituary for Victoria D. Edwards

Life on earth began for Victoria D. Edwards on October 30, 1949 in Brooklyn, New York. She was the daughter of the late Theodore M. Edwards and Alice Emma Edwards. Victoria was lovingly called “Vicki” by many who knew and loved her. She was educated in the public schools and was a high school graduate.
For many years, Victoria was a resident of Fairmont, West Virginia where she worked as a Nurse Assistant in the home care industry. Her religious experience began at an early age. She was a member of Morning Star Baptist Church in Fairmont. At Morning Star, Victoria received great joy singing in the church choir and serving in the pastor’s aide ministry.
Victoria loved cooking for family and friends. She also enjoyed being around family, reading books and taking long walks. Victoria received great pleasure spending time with her grandchildren and also wearing her Sunday best whenever she went out along with her jewelry which she also loved mixing and matching. She was a wonderful person, who made sure everyone was taken care of no matter what the circumstance.
After living a full and productive live, Victoria peacefully transitioned from life on earth to eternal rest on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings, George Edwards , Walter Edwards and Leslie Edwards who she loved with all her heart.
Victoria leaves to mourn her passing and to cherish her memory, daughter, Angela Yvonne Edwards, two grandchildren, DeJanae Edwards of Fairmont, WV and Ariah Edwards of Pittsburgh; one sister, Marcella Jenkins; one dear and favorite aunt, Viola Livingston along with a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Victoria is also survived by a devoted friend and caretaker , Beverly Hilliard who never left her side and would accompany Victoria on shopping trips and to all her appointments.
Victoria will be deeply missed and loved by all who had the pleasure of being in her presence.
A Silent Tear—Author Unknown
Just close your eyes and you will see all the memories that you have of me
Just sit and relax and you will find I’m really still there inside your mind
Don’t cry for me now, I’m gone… for I am in the land of song
There is no pain, there is no fear, so dry away that silent tear
Don’t think of me in the dark and cold, for here I am not young or old,
I’m in that place that’s filled with love known to you all as, “up above…”
