Edna Ruth formerly of the Grays Creek community, 94, went to be with her Lord and Savior peacefully in her sleep on March 9, 2024.

Edna graduated from the North Carolina School for the deaf in 1950.  She was May Queen and inducted to the school's basketball Hall of Fame. 
Edna's journey took a poignant turn when she met and married the love of her life, Wilbur Lyle.  Their union was a testament to enduring love and together built a life filled with joys and sorrows.  They faced life's challenges hand in hand, creating a bond that not even death could break, tragically, experiencing the heartache of losing their beloved daughter, Clara Mae.
Edna was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend who will be forever cherished and missed by many.
