Lucy R. Edwards, age 91, of Clarks Summit and formerly of Moosic, passed away Tuesday evening at Moses Taylor Hospital in Scranton. She was preceded in death by her husband, William Edwards, in November, 1986.
Born on February 9, 1927, and daughter of the late Chester Morris, Sr. and Frances Hunt Richards, Lucy was raised in Newton and educated in Newton-Ransom Schools. After raising her loving family, she had last worked for the Wilkes Barre-Scranton Int’l Airport.
Both she and her husband were pillars of the Moosic Hose Company, having volunteered countless hours while participating with their children in all of its events. Lucy had many talents including playing the accordion and yodeling, but she was also pretty good at both playing bingo and chatting on the phone. An amazing mother and grandmother, she took pride in raising her large and adoring family. Despite any physicial ailments she endured, she fought through to lead both a full and independent life. Now at peace, she’s certainly earned her Angels Wings. She’ll be forever missed.
She is survived by her seven children, Michael Edwards and wife Sharon of Glenburn Twp., Carolyn Shaffer of Taylor, Richard Edwards of Moosic, Dennis Edwards and wife Teresa of Scranton, Gary Edwards and wife Lehrae of Duryea, Bonnie Semmelmann and husband Steve of Blakeslee and Bradley Edwards of Avoca; siblings, Kenneth Richards and wife Donna of Dalton, Roger Richards and wife Cathy of Tunkhannock, Dorothy Edwards of Newton, Carolyn Landsiedel of Dalton, Marilyn Mirabelli and husband John of Newton, Virginia Thomas of Lake Ariel and Joyce LaRue and husband Steve of Newton; 35 grandchildren; many great and great-great grandchildren; and countless nieces and nephews.
Children, Nancy Evans, William and Thomas Edwards; a grandson, John Leonard; and siblings, James Richards, Chester Morris, Jr. and Jean Evaskitis, also preceded her in death.
Funeral services are scheduled for Saturday at noon in the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, to be celebrated by Rev. Donald Gilchrist, Pastor of the Chinchilla United Methodist Church. Burial will follow at the Marcy Cemetery in Duryea.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Saturday from 10:00AM until services. Please visit the funeral home’s website for directions or to leave an online condolence.
