She was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Milton “Lightening” Harrell. As a long time Emporia resident and member of Forrest Hill Baptist Church, Edith lived in Brink for the last 50+ years and retired from Emporia Garment factory. Better known as “Billie” to friends and family, she travelled frequently to visit her five grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and her large extended family.
One of four daughters to Winfrey Wayland and Lacy Wyche Thompson Ferguson of Emporia, Billie was a vital member of her community, a devoted daughter, loving mother and proud grandmother. On September 22nd, her family would be honored if you would join them to celebrate a life well lived at Echols Funeral Home in Emporia, VA. Visitation will be from 1:30-2:30 and memorial service at 3:00. A processional to Forest Hill Baptist Church, Skippers VA for a brief graveside remembrance before refreshments in the fellowship hall.
