Sept. 29, 1951 - Sept. 21, 2017

Linda was born Linda Lolene Wheeler in Coos Bay.  She married Howard C. Edwards, Jr. in Reno, Nev., Febr. 18, 1972.  They made their home in Greenacres prior to moving to Allegany in the mid 70s.

Linda had a passion for gardening, antiques and creating.  She loved designing unique buildings and yard sculptures.  If it was rusty she loved it!

Visitors who came to swim in the river, walk through the gardens or just sit on the porch, were always greeted by the Edwards with enthusiasm and love, as well as Puzzles, the family's fox terrier.

Linda is survived by her husband, Howard; sister, Sandy Curtis of Allegany; brother, Rick Wheeler and wife, Diane of Colo.; nieces, Tammy Whipple, Michelle Curtis, Kelsy and Morgan Wheeler; great nieces, Jessica Berndt, Emily Stang, Kendra Whipple; great nephews, Kellen Whipple and Dwayne Long; sister-in-law, Carol Douglas of Coos Bay; nieces, Casey Hubbard and Melissa "Missy" Clemens and husband, Wayne "Jimmy"; great nephews, Jordan Meeker and Cody Hubbard; great niece, Shelby Ortiz and children.

A celebration of life potluck is planned for 1:00 p.m., Oct. 21 at the Allegany Community Center.  Please bring a dish, a favorite memory, story or thought to share about Linda.
