Our loving mother and grandmother went peacefully into the arms of Jesus on January 18, 2011, at Horton Plaza, at the age of 92. She was born January 21, 1918, in Wellston, Okla., to Andrew and Nora Vaughan.
She married LeRoy Kyker in 1936, and came to Medford, Ore. He died in 1950. She married Ken Edwards in 1952, and worked with him in Edwards Weatherstrip Service. They shared interests in gardening and antique car clubs. When she was not spending time with family, she enjoyed playing cards, quilting, crocheting and RV travelling.
Out mother loved people and always had an open door policy for anyone who needed it. She is survived by three daughters, Lanora Meyer, Betty (Dennis) Ortman, and Deborah (David) Brockmiller; one sister, Jean Kimmel; eight grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
We wish to express many thanks to the caregivers and
Horton Plaza for their loving care. There will be a viewing on Monday, January 24, 2011, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., at Perl Funeral Home. A memorial service will follow, at 2:00 p.m., at United Methodist Church, 607 W. Main St.
