Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
    Sylvia D. Edwards, a resident of Washington, NC passed away at Vidant Medical Center just a few short days after her sixty-fourth birthday, on February 5, 2022.

    She was born in Washington County to the late John Carroll Williams Jr. and Lois J. Manseau-Williams in February of 1958.

    Sylvia was a warm and out-going woman. She loved nothing more than haggling and trade back-and-forths at the flea market; it didn't matter if she was buying or selling. She loved it all. Many of her favorite activities involved socializing and cutting-up with friends and family. She knew her way around the kitchen and never needed much of an excuse to feed and entertain a crowd. She was happily married to her husband Johnny for forty years. You know their marriage was exceedingly strong, as it survived four decades of Christmas-induced electric bills. She loved Christmas, and all the lights that came with it. She heard the expression, "lit up like Ft. Knox" and scoffed, considering it a dim pity. Holidays are a reason to gather; she loved all holidays but Christmas held a special place in her heart. Any event that would bring a flood of grandchildren through her door brought her joy.

    Along with her mother and father she was also preceded in death by her stepfather Edward G. Walls III, a son: Kenneth Ray Jones Jr., and a granddaughter: Alice Pearl Jones.

    Sylvia is survived by her husband Johnny Edwards, two daughters: Khristie Jones Edson and husband Charlie, Jessie May Edwards and boyfriend James Deaver; two granddaughters: Tasia Griffin and boyfriend Wanya, Jordyn Deaver; Three Grandsons, Kenneth Jones III, Austin Jones , and Tyler Jones; a great-granddaughter: Addison Lilly-Ann Jones; two sisters: Janet and Patricia Williams; and two brothers: David and Danny Williams.

    A visitation will be held from 6:00-8:00pm Thursday, February 10, at Joseph B. Paul Jr. Funeral Service. The funeral service will be the following morning at 11:00am at the same location.

    Joseph B. Paul Jr. Funeral Service is honored to assist the Edwards Family.
