Edna Gray Lackey

August 5, 1933 — October 26, 2023

Edna Gray Lackey, a beacon of love, faith, and spirited energy, was born on the 5th of August 1933, in the quaint town of Rose Hill, NC. She embarked on her final journey on the 26th of October 2023, leaving behind a legacy of strength and resilience in South Carolina.

In her early years, Edna's education journey ended at the 10th grade, but her thirst for knowledge never ceased. She worked in a sewing room, creating pieces that were as vibrant and unique as her spirit. Later, she embraced the role of a housewife, demonstrating her nurturing nature by creating a warm and inviting home for her family. Her work was a testament to her dedication, commitment, and unwavering love for her family and community.

Edna was a woman of many passions. She found joy and solace in the simplicity of reading, the challenge of word puzzles, and the soothing rhythms of gospel music. Each interest was a reflection of her personality - her love for stories, her sharp intellect, and her steadfast faith. These passions enriched her life, bringing her happiness and contentment, and providing a source of inspiration for those around her.

Edna's family was her heart and soul. She is survived by her loving children, Wanda Styron (Jack), Donna Childs, and Toby Lackey (Tracy). She was a cherished sister to Marie Wilson and Gerald Murphy, a revered grandmother to Jeremy Styron, and Brandon Lackey (Brittany), Katelyn Cooper (Dustin), and Rachael Lackey, and a doting great-grandmother to her five great-grandchildren. Edna was predeceased by her siblings, Carl Murphy, Virginia Kitchens, Myrtle Foster, Reba Lanford, Charles Murphy, Homer Murphy, Jay Murphy, Leroy Murphy, and her granddaughter, Deana Coker.

In every role she played – sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother – Edna embodied love, faith, and spirited energy. She was the kind of person who could light up a room with her warm presence and infectious energy. Her strength was unyielding, her spirit was indomitable, and her faith was unshakeable. She was a beacon of light and hope in the lives of all who knew her.

Edna's life is a testament to the power of love, faith, and spirit. Her journey was not without its challenges, but she faced them with courage and grace. She taught us that no obstacle is insurmountable when faced with determination and faith. She inspired us to live our lives with love, to cherish our family, and to never lose sight of our passions. Her memory will continue to be a source of inspiration and strength for all those who were fortunate enough to know her.

Edna Gray Lackey's life was a symphony of love, faith, and spirited energy. Her melody will forever resonate in the hearts of those who knew her, a beautiful reminder of a woman who lived her life with passion and grace. As we remember Edna, let us celebrate her life, her spirit, and the profound impact she had on all our lives. Let us carry her legacy forward, living our lives with the same love, faith, and spirited energy that she embodied. In this way, Edna Gray Lackey will continue to live on, not just in our memories, but in the way we live our lives.(The draft text of this obituary was generated using artificial intelligence technology)
