Edna Mae (Simpson) Wamsley
April 30, 1937 – July 15, 2022
She lived the dash between birth and death serving the Lord with great joy.
She was born in Hawkins County, TN but moved to Ohio in her teens where she married Ezra M Wamsley, Jr, who preceded her in death. She passed away at her home with praying, singing, and the love of her family surrounding her.
Her greatest joy was serving and working for the Lord. She enjoyed mission work, teaching, praying, but most of all singing. Thru her music all those she met knew she loved the Lord. The legacy of her singing for the Lord is one that will not be forgotten.
