Veloris Edwards

On Sunday October 29, 2017 our beloved V. Jean Edwards departed this life. She was the daughter to the Late George T, and Lacy Ann Williams, and one of the youngest of 8 children.

She attended Greene County Public School in Snow Hill , NC and graduated with a Master in Special Education from the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University known as NC A&T.

She spent many years as a educator who was a caring teacher that showed more interest in her students that exceeded academics. She cared for her students as though they were her own.

She was the Vice President of Edwards Trucking Company, a business that she opened and operated with her husband. Business was successful, making them one of the most accomplished African-American Business owners in the area.

Jean spent a short time serving the Speaker of the House in Washington, DC. which she enjoyed tremendously during her time there.

She attended the Spirit of Peace Baptist church where she diligently served as a deaconess and was a faithful contributor to the ministry.

She enjoyed traveling, and being with close friends and family. She seized every moment and made it enjoyable for all that would come in contact with her. She left vigorous impressions to those that would meet her, and lasting relationships to all that would know her.

She leaves to cherish her memory a loving, caring and devoted husband of 54 years, Leon A. Edwards, and her two children Reginald Edwards(Sherry), and Tiena Edwards. Her two sisters, Dorothy Clark (Washington DC) , and Sabrina Hickman (Greenville, NC). One grandson Reginald Charles Edwards, one granddaughter Miesha Dockery and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. She was also very loving and nurturing to her God-children who she adored genuinely, Julia Chaney (Winston) and Malika Taylor Phillips.

A Life Celebration Memorial Service will be held 11am Saturday, November 11, 2017 at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, 2221 Emmett Dr. Alex. VA.
