Mae Ellis Edmondson, 77, went to her heavenly home on Sunday, February 19, 2017 at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, MS. She was born April 24, 1939 in Vardaman, MS; she was the daughter of the late Paul Ellis and Pauline Ramage Ellis.
Mrs. Mae was a member of New Liberty Baptist Church. She grew up in the New Liberty community among family and close friends. She met and married Harold Edmondson of Vardaman, MS.

They were blessed with grandchildren, too: Ashley Edmondson Hughes, Payton Edmondson, Kenneth Walls, Ethan Edmondson, Evan Edmondson, and Brinkley Shappley-Spillers. She was doubly blessed with great-grandchildren: Sawyer Hughes and Haden Hughes.

She was an avid reader and one of the first members of the John S. Edmondson Memorial Library in Vardaman, MS. She was a life-long supporter of the public library. She enjoyed working in her garden and instilled the love of reading and gardening to her children and grandchildren. She loved the close-knit community of neighbors and friends where she resided for more than 50 years.
