Patricia Edwards, 79, beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, was called to her eternal resting place on July 21, 2021. She entered this world on August 3, 1941, in Mooresville, N.C., born to Paul and Ruby Lambert. After graduating from Mooresville High School in 1959, Pat attended Kings College in Charlotte.
Patricia loved spending time with her children and grandchildren, whom she considered her greatest blessings. She was known by many names, Ms. Pat, Mom, Mumsi, and Dummies. Whichever name you knew her by, you knew you were going to have a fun time with her quick wit and infectious laugh. She could often be found cooking up some of her famous goodies, like Goo Cake and Sausage Balls, or out to eat breakfast with her family, or on one of her many adventures with her “Golden Girls” where they had marathon card games. Patricia loved reading and could often be found in What-a-Burger parking lot, where she would eat and read.
She is survived by her children, son Mark Edwards; son Scott Edwards (Dana); and daughter Lori Broome; and her grandchildren, Jessi Taylor (Dalton); Shane Taylor (Kaylyn); and Karley Dominick (Matt); Courtney Gaultney (David); Cory Gaultney; and Cooper Gaultney. She also had two great-granddaughters, Alice and Raelyn.
Patricia was preceded in death by her parents, Paul and Ruby Lambert; her brother, Donald Lambert; and son-in-law, Johnny Broome.
