Obituary for Clyde Edwards

Clyde Edwards
Clyde E. (Kitty) Edwards, age 89, departed this life for his
heavenly home, on April 8, 2018, at his residence, surrounded by his family. He
was the husband of Minnie Pearl Edwards, whom he lovingly called Koote/Granny,
and they shared 65 years of marriage together. This union produced three children,
seven grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.
Born in Monroeville, Alabama, he was the son of the late John Elmore and Ella
Clausell Edwards. Clyde is preceded in death by 14 siblings and one granddaughter,
Rachel Elizabeth Edwards. He met and later married the love of his life, the beautiful,
Minnie East, on August 10, 1952. This love created a loving, affectionate, and
caring family. After marriage, they moved to Mobile, Alabama, and joined Phillips
Temple A.O.H. Church. In 1986, they joined Living Word Christian Center under
the leadership of Bishop Levy H. Knox. Clyde loved the Lord and enjoyed attending
church regularly until his health started to decline.
Clyde (Kitty) was the family jokester. Each of us is left with our own fond memories
of his hilarious stories. His passion was traveling with his family in his big blue
and gold conversion van. Every year, Clyde would pack up of all of his children,
their spouses, and grandchildren and travel cross-country to many states and cities.
We traveled north, south, east, and west, all the while visiting every amusement
park along the way. Another passion of his was his extended family; he loved to
visit cousins, nieces, and nephews, traveling thousands of miles to make sure his
children knew their family.

His remains will lie in state on Thursday, April 12, 2018 from 1- 8pm at Small’s Mortuary, Mobile. Visitation will be held on Friday, April 13, 2018 from 9am until the 11am funeral hour at Christ Temple Apostolic Church, 801 Virginia Street, Mobile, AL. Officiant, Bishop Levy H. Knox, Living Word Christian Center.

Interment will follow in Lawn Haven Cemetery, Theodore, AL.
