Hobbs

Mrs. Edwards was born June 12, 1928 in Rising Sun, Illinois and died on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at Lea Regional Medical Center.  She married Maurice “Doc” Edwards on February 24, 1946 in Carmi, Illinois, and they enjoyed almost 50 years of married life.  They moved to Hobbs in December of 1965 when Mr. Edwards was transferred with Warren Petroleum. Mrs. Edwards worked at Western Auto and K Mart for a period of years before retiring.  She was a breast cancer survivor and her greatest joys were spending time with her family and sitting outside.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Maurice “Doc” Edwards; her parents, Edgar and Ina Frymire; her brother, A. W. Frymire; her son-in-law, Joe Galyean; and an infant great grandchild.
