Edith Leurenna Johnson Faulkner

Edith Leurenna Johnson Faulkner, 95, of Deltaville, VA passed away February 28, 2018. Edith was born December 23, 1922 to the late James Albert Johnson and Naomi Harrow Johnson. She was married to Robert H. Faulkner for 69 years until he passed in 2012. She is survived by her children; Robert A. Faulkner and his wife, Diane, Robin Faulkner Schmitt and her husband, Tom; a sister, Mary Ruth Selby; and a dear friend and cousin, Barbara Thompson.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her brother, Oran Johnson. Edith loved fiercely. She loved her church, back-yard bird watching, singing in the choir, arranging flowers and her community, but most of all, she loved her family. She was a devoted wife, a proud mother, a dutiful daughter and a doting nana. She was stubborn but kind, demanding but generous and her family and friends loved and respected her for all of it. She will be missed immensely by all of those who knew her. Funeral services will be held at Zoar Baptist Church in Deltaville on Sunday, March 4th at 2 pm. Visitation will precede the service at the church at 1 pm. Burial will immediately follow in the church cemetery. Friends and family are invited to stay afterwards for a small reception in the church Fellowship Hall.
