Fairy Marie (Meed) Edwards, 89, of Missoula went to be with her Lord early Tuesday, Oct 8, 2019. She was born May 5, 1930 to a family of 7 children including a twin sister Faye. She grew up in Oliver, BC, Canada on a small farm and enjoyed trips into town as a young girl in the horse drawn wagon and dancing on Saturday nights. After graduation she worked at the Oliver Chronicle.
She met Marlin Edwards, the love of her life, while he was in the Navy in the summer of 1951 and they were married December 27, 1952. They lived in Norfolk, Virginia until 1955 and moved back to Missoula where they then attended Prairie Bible Institute in Alberta, Canada for 4 years. They worked with teens and as Youth Leaders for over 40 years at Missoula Alliance Church and counselled many summers at Big Sky Bible Camp.
Fairy is well known for her dozens of homemade pumpkin pies that she would donate to the Alliance “Pumpkin Patch”. Fairy was a superb cook and opened her home to hundreds over the years serving them dinner! The “Widows Dinner” she hosted annually for 26 years, letter writing and her poetry are fondly remembered by so many. Marlin and Fairy travelled to Japan to help build a church and over the years welcomed many church missionaries into their home. She loved sewing, time with her husband and friends, bowling, church activities, and her family.
She is survived by her husband, Marlin; 2 sons and their families, Larry (& Lisa) of Carlsbad, CA and Ron (& Jennie) Edwards of California; her 4 grandchildren, Summer Rose, Adam, Seth and Grace; 2 sisters living in Sacramento, CA. Her strong faith, quick wit, infectious laugh and willingness to help others will be remembered by friends and family near and far.

We will never forget Fairy for the variety of delectable goodies she so lovingly shared. Oh how she enjoyed sharing her poetry, and memories. That bright smile will never go out from our memories. She was always so beautifully presented, which simply reflected her heart.
It’s nearly impossible to truly try to capture the most impressionable and lasting memories of her, without including Marlin. The example of their deep deep love for each other, and how they lived out their marriage before others is beyond words. We learned so very much from them, they were the most graphic example of a truly happy marriage. They faced each adversity with the most selfless examples that we’ve been privileged to see. One after the other. On their one of toughest emotional days, they chose to come bless us, rather than get bogged down in their own circumstances. Their examples are endless in our hearts.
